Pineappled instead of plopped
I did this a couple of nights ago. I just finished a long bike ride and wanted to wash my hair before bedtime. I know it's probably not good to do, but I went to bed with wet hair.
Got out of the shower after putting on a leave-in conditioner, then combed through (fine tooth comb) gel. Scrunched, and while still upside down, put my hair in a loose pineapple.
Then went to bed with the wet pineapple. I woke up the next morning and my hair was not only really soft (I've been using the same leave-in/gel for a while now), but had volume and clumpy curls.
I scrunched out any remaining crunch with a light oil (I use avocado) and was set for the day. My hair was great all day long.
I tried it again for the next 2 days - all with the same results.
Although I cannot find the link as to why it's not good to go to sleep with wet hair (breakage??), I haven't noticed any breakage or split ends or anything in my hair (yet).
