Freestanding bedheads are simply large bits of hair that stick out from the head of your bed. They can range in size from a few hairs to about 4 inches. The term “freestanding” is derived from the fact that they are free to fall off of the head of your bed. Bedheads tend to be very easy to care for and do not collect hairballs like clip-on bedheads would. For that reason, many people prefer them to other types of hair styles and can actually wash the freestanding hair without worries about it being plugged or clogged with hair.
There are many different reasons that you may want to get freestanding. For instance, they are generally easier to style than some other styles such as Brazilian. They are also much easier to keep clean and less likely to be cut off when you get out of bed in the morning. They are also generally less expensive than most other types of bedheads.
If you would like to try freestanding but are worried that your hair might get caught up in the freestanding head, there is an inexpensive solution to this that works just as well. Simply brush your head in a downward motion so that the bedhead will go down instead of up. This can be a little bit trickier to do at first but can be done fairly easily. Once you master it, you will probably never want to brush the freestanding hair off your head again.
