What's Your Night time routine?

So, I've been wondering what other curly girls do at night.
I take my showers at night and i always put some conditioner in my hair, rinse out, put a little more in as a LI, and then when i get out i add some avocado oil, coconut oil, and then after my hair is mostly dry i pineapple..

but, that isn't exactly working. in the morning my hair is all dry and tangled
so..should i use a leave-in at night? ( i rinse my hair in the morning before i style it)
i wouldn't mind using another leave-in at night if it means my hair will be okay in the morning.
I once tried pinappleing and in the morning my hair stayed in the shape of the pineapple. I have hair that likes to stay the way you put it. I find I manage to have second day hair if I just sleep on my hair. Also I usually shower in the morning. So obviously we don't have the same problem. If I tried to sleep on wet hair it would be a disaster. What you could try is tying a big bun on the top of your hair. I do that sometimes. It's like pineappling but without the knots. HTH

Still looking for the perfect products! And trying to deal with hard water!

Usually I just rinse it again in the morning, but sometimes do put it up like a pineapple but doubled, not pulled all the way back through the liga; so that it stays still all night, this works OK except that my hair is straighter underneath and this makes it really straight since that's the part that is slept on.

Henna!
I just put in a loose bun on the top of my head. I usually have to re-wet my hair in the morning to style it, so I don't care about preserving my curls or whatever.

I can't seem to find a satin bonnet or even satin pillowcases anywhere! I'm thinking of going to the fabric store and just buying bulk satin. I really want to start sleeping with a satin pillow case. I have some satin scarves but they come off in the middle of the night (I move a lot).
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!



I also can't go to bed with a wet head. I shower in the am, let hair air dry, and sleep on it (dry) at night. I've tried wrapping it at night but it either comes loose or I tie it too tight and end up with an indentation all the way around my head. For second day hair I scrunch a lil watered down conditioner through it. But I still haven't mastered second day hair
Here you go Silk Charmeuse Pillow Covers. Dharma Trading Company's silk pillowcases are a steal, though not as much as they were before the price of everything from China started on its current climb.

Thanks for the link, Morgan. I am putting that on my birthday wish list. I have a satin one, but it makes me hot so I am hoping silk will be better.

My night routine if I need good morning hair is to style it as usual the night before but NOT scrunch out the crunch. I sleep in a bonnet and then in the morning most of the crunch is gone, and it just needs some smoothing which I do either with coconut oil, watered down conditioner, or plain flax seed gel--still figuring out which is best. I found that smoothing over the outer surface of my hair results in less frizz than scrunching once it's dry.

Since the new (second) edition of Curly Girl came out, I've been using the new method, and find that my curls are much more resilient than previously. I was covering my hair with a silk bonnet or putting my hair up in high pigtails or a pineapple. Now I have less damage to repair in the morning, and have more volume (a good thing). I quickly finger dampen lightly, and give it a scrunch. At most, I've emulsified a scant amount of curl cream, added a quick shot of mousse, mixed those together, given my hair a couple of swipes, then inserted my fingers and applied what remains, and that's it.

(Prior to going CG, I was never able to revive my curl or restyle without a complete hair washing routine.)
