After three seasons of sporting Betty Cooper’s infamous ponytail on Riverdale, Lili Reinhart has shared one of the hardest parts about being Betty. As it turns out, her character’s signature hairdo doesn’t provide much in the way of comfort when it comes to on-set naps.
As Riverdale continues filming its upcoming third season, Lili apparently decided to take a break from the action and shared a photo on her Instagram Stories of her future cat nap plans. In the photo, the star is curled up on a couch, presumably in the wardrobe and makeup of her character. She’s giving a side-eye to the camera and captioned the selfie with, “Trying to take a nap without screwing up this ponytail is impossible and annoying.”
Her statement on the nearly impossible task of not messing up your hair while you sleep is certainly one we can all relate to. And while enjoying a quick snooze with an updo isn’t likely to cause any major hair damage, experts have warned against sleeping with styles that pull on the hair, as this could potentially cause damage to hair follicles and prevent hair growth. That being said, enjoying a quick nap without having to redo your hair upon getting up might be possible.
Silk hair accessories have been proven to help maintain your favorite hairstyles and act as a hair moisturizer. So, for those sleeping beauties that want to protect their hair while they snooze, options like a silk beanie or a silk pillowcase are a good alternative when it comes to keeping your hair looking fresh. If all else fails, you may also want to consider a multi-tasking hairspray.
