The Best Ways to Sleep with Wet Hair and Wake Up with Gorgeous Locks 546 450 Number 4 High Performance Hair Care


As much as we love taking a relaxing shower before bed, especially if we’re using N4 Fleurs de Temps Soothing Body Wash, which is quite frankly dream-inducing, going to sleep with wet hair is a big no-no! But what if you have no choice? Sometimes, we’re in a rush, or it’s so hot outside that we can’t resist washing our hair at night. Fear not! We have just the tips to help you wake up with luscious locks while sleeping with wet hair! Read on to discover the best way to sleep with wet hair at night.

The Best Ways to Sleep with Wet Hair and Wake Up with Gorgeous Locks

Best Way to Sleep with Wet Hair

We asked the team to come up with their top tried and tested tips on ensuring they wake up with sleek, not-frizzy hair, plus the organic and vegan hair treatments they recommend the most. Here is their list of Do’s and Don’ts:

DO: Use A Hydrating Shampoo

If you have oily hair, a dry shampoo is going to be your best friend when it comes to sleeping with wet hair. A quick spritz before bed will absorb the moisture and leave your hair smelling fresh in the morning. And in terms of the best shampoo to use, we suggest trying Number 4 Hydrating Shampoo. Why? It won’t weigh the hair down because it’s highly concentrated yet lightweight. It’s also anti-aging, which we love!

Hydrating Condition and Shampoo to sleep with wet hair and wake up with gorgeous locksDON’T: Wrap Your Hair

No matter how tempting it may be, Dah-ling, wrapping your hair in a towel or a turban to dry overnight can cause freakishly frizzy hair in the morning. Instead, towel dry gently and shake out your hair before catching your z’s.

DO: Use A Healthy Organic Leave-In Conditioning Treatment

Apply a leave-in conditioning treatment to the ends of your hair, avoiding your roots to prevent greasiness when you wake from your beauty sleep. And that’s where Number 4 Smoothing Balm with Fluoro Technology comes in. With these teeny tiny smoothing molecules, this balm works hard to protect hair and shield it from humidity while you’re busy getting your beauty sleep.

Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect is also a must. This paraben-free and sulfate-free product works equally well on wet or dry hair, and it has a built-in heat protector with nourishing benefits. Not only will it keep your ends moisturized, but it’ll also prep your hair for heat styling the next day. It’s an overnight beauty treat that works hard to protect your precious hair while you get on with the important stuff – dreaming about how gorgeous your hair will look in the morning!

DO: Use the Right Pillowcase

The fabric you sleep on, especially if you go to bed with wet hair, is super important. You don’t want a rough texture that will snag your shafts, instead, you want to sleep on a silk, satin or vegan-silk pillowcase because these will all help reduce the friction between hair and pillow, preventing hair breakage and frizz in the morning. A bonus? They’re also great for your skin! Silk and satin have fabulous anti-ageing benefits, so you’ll wake up with dream hair and a crinkle-free face, too, ready and raring to slay the day.

DON’T: Sleep with Your Hair Directly on Your Pillow

On the topic of pillows, we recommend pulling your hair up into a high ponytail or a loose braid, allowing it to dry freely without smooshing it against your pillow. Combine this trick with N4 leave-in conditioning Super Comb Prep & Protect, and you can live a tangle-free life!

Sleeping with Wet Hair Super Comb and Protect productDON’T: Use Heat Appliances in The Morning

Hear us out, Dah-ling! We know this one will be hard to avoid, but air-drying wet hair and leaving it au naturel the next day is like giving yourself a reviving breath of fresh (h)air!

Try using an organic and vegan hair treatment like Number 4 Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil. It truly is a miracle product! Use to seal, finish, restore and protect. It also conditions and adds incredible, illuminating shine. How to use? Work it through from the middle to the ends of your hair, leaving the roots alone. Let the moisture sink in, and style your hair however you like without using a heated straightener or curler. Your hair will thank you, trust us!

Final Thoughts on Sleeping with Wet Hair

Sleeping with wet hair doesn’t have to be the end of the world. With these easy tips and tricks using Number 4 botanical hair care products, you’ll be able to wake up with gorgeous locks, all without causing any damage to your hair. Use the above methods with the best professional hair care products, like Number 4 paraben-free products. These sulfate and sodium chloride-free hair products will do wonders for the health and appearance of your hair. Try out some of our vegan hair care products for curly hair as well, as they will be gentle on your scalp and locks, allowing for natural curls to form overnight. Remember to take care of your hair as you sleep so that you can wake up to a new dawn of luscious locks every time!

  1. Sparkle Tafao

    Have tested this product on client after client. I work in the fashion industry doing hair for some of the major clothing brands that you know and love. Many models arrive with tangled hair. I use Super comb prep and I get so many products in one. It delivers conditioning, healthy hair, detangles, and helps the styling process. I spray a couple pumps of this comb and detangles the hair and add Thermal styling spray for heat protectant and to hold the curls in place. Perfect combo! The added plus is the products smell so great.

  2. Nicole Fisher

    This product works great as a leave in conditioner. A little goes a long way. I absolutely love the smell!!!

  3. Melissa

    I got a sample of this from birchbox. I loved it. I Tangle really easy this stuff made it very easy to brush my hair.

  4. Melissa Austin

    I received a sample of this in my Birchbox and loved it. It made my hair really smooth without being super greasy, which products like this tend to do with my hair. I don’t necessarily have a huge tangle issue but it kept my hair really soft.

  5. Ursula Ball

    I was first introduced to your products via Birchbox..shampoo,conditioner, and style aids!! I feel the most important product will be Super Comb and Protect from UV rays, heat damage, and condition protection plus the comb that comes with it!! Whatever style after shampoo & condition, you got to protect your hair first!!

  6. Stephanie

    I absolutely love this spray! I got a sample of it in a subscription, and it’s absolutely phenomenal. The smell is amazing, and I love that it protects my dyed red hair from both the flat iron and from fading in the sun.

  7. Kristi

    I received this in my Birchbox and absolutely love it! My daughter always wants to use my special spray and on special occasions I let her. This makes my thick wavy hair feel amazing and the tangles fall right out! And that smell! I love the smell probably my favorite thing about it! Thank you for such an amazing product!

  8. Candi

    I simply cannot do without Super Comb Prep & Protect. My hair was really showing the effects of blow drying, straightening, sun damage, and age-but this product restores my hair every time. On the rare occasion I run out of it, there is a noticeable difference. Also, did I mention I love the smell of it?

  9. Karen Cogburn

    This is all I use when flat ironing or blow drying. Perfect protection for damaged hair. It smells lovely also. Many compliments since using. Recommend to friends & family.

  10. anakrmz89

    I was never a fan of detanglers until I received this as a sample. I used heavy leave in conditioners and my hair was greasy by the end of the day. This Supercomb Prep and Protect is magic in a bottle! It’s weightless, the fragrance is light and my hair is so soft after I use it! This is definitely a staple to my hair routine now!

  11. Marissa Ramirez

    Thanks to Birchbox, I have fallen head I’ve heels for this leave-in conditioner! I received a sample in my Birchbox and had to have a full-size. The smell is amazing, but the way it has transformed my hair is even more amazing. I will never use another leave-in!

  12. mrpurifoy

    I can’t say enough good things about this! It smells divine. It does not weigh down my fine hair. It de-tangles, protects my color and protects from heat. Divine!!!!

  13. Mags

    Smells SO GOOD! I love this leave in conditioner. It leaves my hair soft, easy to brush, and smelling great. Curly hair friendly, too!

    I was introduced to your products through my Birchbox. And I have to say that this is my favorite hair product ever!!!! It protects my color and protects from heat and smells like heaven. I recommend all of your products to all of my friends!!!

  18. mlg235

    I first received this as a sample in my Birchbox subscription, and was so excited to try it out. It did not disappoint! I love having low maintenance looks, and tend to keep my heat styling to a minimum and am always on the look out for great leave-in conditioners. After 5+ years of trying dozens of leave-in conditioners, this is BY FAR my favorite! It was amazed by how shiny, sleek, and smooth it made my hair. I got so many comments after I started using it about how healthy my hair looked!! It is so easy to use, it combs through my hair easily and evenly, and actually seemed to cut down the amount of time I needed to blow dry my hair (which is a MAJOR selling point for me). It’s one of the few Birchbox samples I have actually bought after trying!

  19. kla385

    I first received a sampe of this in a birchbox subscription. I thought this product was so effective that I’ve repurchased it twiced now. I love the way it smells and how it protects my hair when I’m blow drying it. Now that I’ve discovered this product, I don’t think I could ever go without it.

  20. anything1984

    Love! Works great in mine and my daughters hair! We both have fine, thin hair. Gives great gloss to our hair without leaving oil residue and helps maintain style throughout day!

  21. kellykaye

    This is the absolute greatest prepping spray for people who have platinum hair! My hair can start looking fried when it gets bleached and then heat styled, however, since I started using Number 4 Super Comb Prep and Protect my hair has been flawless and it looks so healthy!

  22. mrpurifoy

    I use this product every day! It smells delicious and does not weigh my hair down. I extends the life of my color which is priceless. Best product I use!

  23. emboog

    I love using this product when my hair is especially tangled. Easy to comb so there’s no split ends.
