Styling hair in the morning father washing it at night?

I have long, fine hair that can get very flat. I wash it at night and sleep on it. I just don't have time in the morning with getting ready for work and feeding two dcs and getting them to school and nursery.

Is it possible to style hair without washing it (ie having it damp and blow drying it), would a babyliss big hair work on hair dampened with spray on water, for example? I know straighteners need dry hair, but I am not using them with 2 dcs running round, plus I'd be worried about leaving them on in the stress of the morning!

Thank you!

Sorry I have no practical advice but love the typo in the heading!

Or does your dad really wash your hair when you're asleep???

I can guarantee my father does not wash my hair while I sleep!

I often wash mine at night and then use dry shampoo in the morning.

I wash my hair at night, sleep on it and then wake up, splash some water on it and blow dry upside down and ready to go. Takes just a few minutes, and has saved a lot of time for me

Maybe I should just experiment a little!

grin I'm glad to have made you all smile!

I love the typo!

I often wash mine before bed and leave it wet, but I have the opposite problem in that my hair's long but thick and prone to extreme volume if I blow dry.

Heated rollers are good in the morning - take a min or two to put in but then you just get on with life and take them out before you run out of the door.

I wash at night, also have v fine hair.
When I get up I run a wet brush through it and spray on a bit of styling stuff before using my big hair on fringe and to curl bottom and sides. Works fine.

I have fine, wavy hair in layers.

I wash it at night and when its pretty much dry (I sometimes use a hair dryer to help) I then twist it into a top knot and secure with spin pins ( fantastic invention, can use bobby pins/hair ties instead but the pins don't move as much).

In the morning, I shake it out and either straighten it into submission, or use my babybliss big hair - takes about 10-15minutes for my long hair. If your hair is straight it probably won't take as long. Never had a problem using it with hair being dry, not damp.

I too have very fine hair. A lifesaver for me has been Bumble & Bumble volumising hairspray - you can use on dampish and dry hair in the morning to give a very quick blow dry. Expensive, but I buy the small travel size which lasts a long time. Boots do this online if you can't get a local supplier.
