Default Pineappling

Does anyone pineapple anymore? I tried it a few times when I first ditched my blowdrier but ended up with rather poofy hair.

Last night however, I showered kinda late and didn't want my wet hair going all over the place so I tried a damp pineapple for bed. I'm not sure if it's the dampness that helped or the fact that my hair is much longer now, but I have pretty decent hair this morning! Anyone else ever pineapple damp?

The only way I can get second day hair is to pineapple at night. I have been going to try it on damp hair but havent yet. Sometimes if my hair is dry I do spritz with conditioner water and lightly oil before pineappling for bed

I've never pineappled damp either.

I pineapple to get second day hair or if I'm running around my house cleaning. Keeps me from touching it.

Pineappling my hair while it's damp causes it to dry in strange configurations. I really try to get it all the way dry before I put it up for the night.

I do pineapple but it must be dry. I am afraid of how it would look pineappled damp.

I've gone to bed with my wet hair up in a pineapple before and was pleased with the results. Had to fiddle with the hair around my face a bit, but otherwise, it looked good. Funny, though, after about 7 hours, my hair still wasn't dry!

I don't really pineapple for more than 10 or 15 minutes right out of the shower. However, I have to take showers at night because going outside with even the slightest bit of dampness in Boston is really a bad idea. A few weeks ago I spritzed my hair in the morning to scrunch a bit of life into it and 20 minutes later when I went outside, my entire head froze into a solid block!

What seems to work best for me is putting a loose ponytail on the very top of my head to sleep with. My hair is stick straight up to the tops of my ears anyway so it doesn't really make a difference as far as that. The rest of my hair retains its wave.

I think you might have "plopping" and "pineappling" confused. The high loose ponytail for bed thing you described is pineappling.


For me, the pineapple is a lost cause. I can't keep a loose ponytail holder in under any circumstances, and certainly not with as much wiggling as I do in my sleep! :P
I could see a damp pineapple working for longer hair though. It could reduce frizzing and flattening by keeping your drying hair out from under you.

I don't use a scrunchi I use these awesome pony-tail holders from scunci. They're made from nylon (like panty hose) that's rolled up. The hold is nice but it doesn't damage or get stuck in my hair. I love these things, best pony tail holder ever!

I think my hair must've grown a bit, this damp pineapple thing stopped giving me nice hair and started giving me wierd hair. Dry pineapples always gave me triangle hair and now this is as well. Maybe it's just the weather. Oh well.

This thead was a hoot to read! I have always put my hair up in a high pony before bed. I had no idea there was a term for it. Now, I know.

:P

I thought I saw a link for this somewhere, but haven't been able to successfully search it.

How do you do the pinappling?

A pineapple is just a ponytail that's not pulled through all the way (thus making a big loop and a bit of fringe sticking out the bottom, kinda like an upside down pineapple). This is of course not to be confused with plopping where you sorta put your hair in a perma-scrunch by using a towel or t-shirt to soak up some water while your hair is piled on top of your hair.

Pineappling damp is working again for some reason. Maybe it depends on the weather. Or the phase of the moon. Or my mood.

Not pulled through all the way? I thought it was just a high ponytail and the curls sticking straight up made your head look like a pineapple from the back.

Somewhere someone had a pic.

Hmmm, maybe I'm not pineappling? I do a not pulled through all the way ponytail, otherwise my hair would get squished when I sleep.

Basically the idea is to keep your hair up above your head when you sleep. Some people just lay their hair above their head on the pillow. I move around way too much to do that. Also my hair is long now and I need to put it up when I sleep.

I just bend over, shake out my hair so it's hanging upsidedown and then gently gather it in a hair thing. It looks really silly like I have a spout sticking straight up from the middle of the top of my head. Sometimes a few shorter pieces in the underneath fall out but the crown stays lifted in the ponytail.

Does that make sense? I don't see why you couldn't do it a different way if it works better. You can also try a satin pillow case or sleep cap.

ETA: when my hair was shorter I focused on getting the crown up so that it was lifted when I took it down in the morning.

it may not work for everyone and I know my hair is more curly than wavy.
