how can you sleep with your hair?
 
ok so for me i cant sleep without having my hair look bad the next day, so basically unless i want to wear it in a bun the next day i have to shower everyday which is obviously not helping my hair. so basically how do you sleep with it (like a bun, pony, down.)?
thanks!!

A lot of people here do a "pineapple" which is where they put all their curls into one ponytail on the top of their heads and sleep with it, I think with a loose scrunchie or something, but it doesn't work for me, maybe because my hair is longer? Idk.. either way, I usually just wet my hair every morning and condition it, but I don't co-wash everyday, just coat my hair with it, and just restyle it as usual. It kinda stinks but it's not too bad.

I sleep with my hair down. I'm far too lazy to get up early every day to wash my hair, so I've always done this...but a trick that I've found recently is to go to sleep with my hair 'crunchy' from gel, so that if I move around in my sleep I'm scrunching out the crunch, as opposed to fluffing up my hair.

The other method I've tried is the one that Ephesians2:8 said, but I've never really gotten the hang of it, to be honest. Usually, the ends of my hair end up a lot curlier than the roots so I get a demented looking triangle. I think the problem is that I don't wet my hair enough, I just spray it with water and conditioner in a bottle...

Before I figured out the crunch method, I'd just fan out my hair behind me and try not to move, which is not fun. Seriously.

i always do a bun looking a bit like britney spear's one on top of my head :iconbiggrin:. i just create a huge ponytail on top of it and then loop (sorry, didn't find the right English translation for what i am trying to express) it loosely through my scrunchie. lools awful bit keeps my curls curly.

what i do is, i just wear a silk sleeping cap and it looks pretty good the next day, but it isn't always the most comfortable thing because of the elastic on it. :(

I loosely french braid mine, then in the morning I steam it. I can even get third day hair that looks good doing this!

If I want my curly to look good in the morning I will take a shower in the night and put some cream in it and then put it all on my pillow and the are so super curly in the morning because the didn't have any weight on them in the night! haha...but I know how you feel because I will go the bed with my hair looking way good and in the morning it is all frizzy and weird looking.

how do you pineapple if you have a side part?

Ilanasayshi 08-01-2008 10:41 PM

I've never heard of the "Pineapple" before....O.o
Something to look into.
What I usually do is wash my hair RIGHT before I go to sleep so that my hair will be relatively damp when I wake up in the morning so that I can do what I want with it.

I sometimes take a shower before I go to bed and I plop my hair and I sleep like that. I wake up with pretty curls.

I dont even try to do anything with my hair, but since I got it cut, I dont have to do anything!

Gorgeous_Loxx 08-11-2008 09:53 PM

Pineapple!! it really helps, but for some reason, my curls get really tight over night... dont know why?

hoopsloops 08-12-2008 03:19 PM

clips!!
 
I wet my hair and twist it into about 6ish big chunks then clip it to my head, the next day i just loosen the twists out with my fingers, it works mostly and you get used to sleeping with clips : )

My hair is short, about 2 inches. So no matter how I sleep, my curls are always matted down to my head and not even spritzing it with water and a moisturizer will help. I have to shower and wash it then.

I have a side parting and i just pull it all back, but this always leaves a huge kink!!

I always just take a shower in the morning. If I don't, my hair is awful no matter what. I'm not helping. Sorry. I'm also trying to grow my hair out really long so it weighs the curls down. In seventeen, a girl said 'All curly girls want is more volume!' Not me. I want my hair to be calm and tame and flat with a little bit of volume so its not drab.

I like to "pineapple" it at night. Not only does it not allow to ruin my hair from sleeping, it gives me more height on my roots, because my hair tends to get flat when I first wash it :) Good luck!

I have 2C-3A THICK curls/waves, and I've found that washing my hair at night achieves freakin' miracles for me. I rinse and condition my hair, then get out of the shower and comb it out with a medium-wide toothed plastic comb. Then, I take Sunsilk 24/7 Anti-Frizz Creme (it's the green bottle), about 2-3 large dollops of it, rub it between my hands, and distribute it throughout my hair, followed by combing to ensure even dispersion. I find that this is a good product for me, simply because it is designed to make your hair dry with less frizzing. Plus, it's cheap! Next, I comb all my hair back into a medium-low pony, combing over my part and even combing my bangs back over the top of my head, and secure with an elastic. I put in boby pins to secure my smoothed bangs, because they will never EVER stay back like that on their own. This also helps to straighten them. Next, I go to bed, ahaha, nothing special there. In the morning, my hair is typically still a bit damp. I remove the pins (some bangs often came out of them already in the night with my tossing & turning- ooops!) and gently undo my pony tail. Then, I wet my hands and get a bit of mousse, and gently finger comb my curls, getting any kinks out. However, I'm considering trying gel instead, it really leaves hair more weightless, but this still works well and adds definition with minimal crunch. Then, a little hairspray or finishing creme is all that's left to add. Also;; A good haircut should fall into place with little product, according to hairstyling pro's. You shouldn't be relying on heavy products to weigh down your hair. Instead, try a cut at or just past your shoulders, and keep anything behind your ears one uniform length. This keeps poofing at bay.

I hope this helped you some! Get ahold of me if you have any more questions..xD

I don't know if either of you are attempting CG, but this product is FULL of nasty 'cones that will build up in your hair and require sulfate shampoos to remove.

Take it from a girl who's been there; length will not seriously weigh your curls down enough at the length that most of us would probably be comfortable will. Instead, having hair nearly all the same length will loosen curls. That's what worked for me, as my long curly hair was just slightly less curly and, since it's thick, unbelievably high maintenance, while now that it's around shoulder length and almost all one length the curls are looser and ill defined.
