How many times have woken up, after hitting the snooze button one too many times, only to realize you have to skip breakfast in favor of detangling your locks? Although those who rock a pixie cut may face slightly less of a challenge in the morning, even short hair can require some taming before running out the door. But the thought of waking up even earlier to perfect your locks sounds torturous. It’s times like these when you need to instil a few tricks to help you wake up with great hair.
