Okay…now you have the long, luxurious, beautiful locks you’ve always dreamed of. You’ve just finished an amazing date with Mr. “Sure Seems Like” Right, and you’re staying over…without your “head gear”. What do you do with your hair???
Well, there is no single correct answer, but there a few VERY incorrect ones. What you don’t do is:
- Sleep with it wet.
- Act like it’s your “real” hair (well that’s debatable)
- Worry about it tomorrow.
Instead, double check that you don’t have an emergency scrunchie. You should always keep one in your purse, right next to the condoms. It should be part of your JIC (Justin Case) kit. If not, it’s time for plan b or c. If your underwear is made of nylon or rayon (like Victoria’s Secret Body By Victoria), use it as an emergency scrunchie, while you don one of your man’s shirts. He will never notice that you have panties on your head, if you do this correctly. Pull your hair back in the undie/scrunchie and forget it. Enjoy your evening.
Next on the list is to quickly scan the bathroom for a regular rubberband…like from around a book or newspaper. While it isn’t the best thing for your hair, it is better than going to sleep with it loose. That can cause tangles and weakens the attachment to your natural hair.
Hey, if you’re lucky, maybe he has an old-school do-rag and you can use it to wrap your hair and sleep as normal. Extra points if he has one still in the package.
Now curl up next to him, wearing his shirt and enjoy your evening without destroying your hair extensions.
Of course there is always two big braids, one on each side. If you don’t mind looking like that in front of your new beau, he may just be a keeper!
