How To Rock Sex Hair
A general rule of thumb is: the better the sex, the messier your hair is afterward. Don't let fear of postcoital tangled locks dampen your post-o glow! Read on for SlutBox's guide to rocking sex hair.
Invest In Silk Pillowcases
If you're going to be spending a lot of time on your back, it might be a good idea to invest in some silk or satin pillowcases to combat frizz and beat tangles. The smooth silky fibers won't snag or break your hair while you're gettin' it on, and some people swear by silk pillowcases for their skin, too. While you can drop a small fortune on silk bedding, you can also snag a 100% pure mulberry silk pillowcase from Amazon for just under 20 bucks.
Pack A Comb
Pack a tiny tangle-busting brush in your overnight hoe bag. The Tangle Teezer Compact Styler is a palm-sized detangling brush that painlessly removes tangles and knots perfect for the morning after. Its innovative design even minimizes breakage, splitting and damage and this travel-sized styler even features a click-on, click-off cover to protect your brush from dirt and damage. Got a tangle you just can't tease out? Apply a deep conditioning hair mask like the Nelson J Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 Moisture Healing Hair Mask from our July Box and gently comb through with a wide-tooth comb or your fingers.
Put It Up
The safest way to keep your locks protected and in place is to get 'em up and out of the way during the deed. Throw on your silk bonnet, wrap your hair into a secure top knot or high pony, or (my personal fave) put your hair in braids. Bae can still tug on your braids during sex, and once you're done simply take the braids down for some super-sexy beachy waves.
Roll With It
Sex hair is messy hair. Instead of trying to fight it, roll with it! In the morning, gently comb through your hair with your fingers and then reenergize limp curls and waves with a redefining foam like the Mixed Chicks Morning After Redefining Foam from our July Box. In a pinch, a few spritzes of water scrunched through your locks will help break up grease and revive volume.
