I wanted to tell you guys about this really inexpensive product that has been a lifesaver (or should I say, hair-saver) at night when I’m sleeping.
I love this particular head towel on Amazon because securely fastens to my head and doesn’t move at all no matter how much I toss and turn!
During the day I have managed to keep trichotillomania under control thanks to Keen and the supplements I’ve been taking, but nighttime has been a big struggle…especially since going through a divorce.
I’m so emotionally and physically exhausted these days that by the time I go to bed that I really konk out hard into a deep, deep sleep.
And because I suck my thumb anytime I’m tired and my other hand always wants to go for my head to pull out my hair.
These two habits have been something I’ve struggled with my whole life and when I’m awake I am aware of them and manage to distract myself since retraining myself with my habit detecting bracelets… but in this deep state of sleep, it’s a whole different struggle.
When I’m sleeping it’s a lot harder to stop myself from pulling out my hair because I’m not aware of what I’m doing. The struggle has been SO REAL lately that I had to find some sort of solution AND FAST.
I do have these cool foam curlers that I wear sometimes that help stop me from pulling, but they are not an every night kind of thing because you do have to wash your hair to make them work.
I really needed something easier and comfortable to wear that would act as a barrier in my sleep and I think the head towel is great because you don’t necessarily have to wash your hair to wear it.
If I happen to wash my hair before bed, it does make it a lot less frizzy in the morning – which makes trichotillomania easier to manage.
I think for the price, it’s worth a shot if you’re someone who is pulling your hair out in your sleep like me.
