Default Alternatives to pineappleing?

Hi! I've recently tried pineappleing and found that it hasn't worked for me, I wake up the next morning and my hair has fallen out of the pineapple, I think my hair is too thin for it. Does anyone have any other methods of sleeping on hair to keep maximum curl? I hate to have to wake up so early in the morning to shower haha. Thanks a bunch!

A satin pillowcase will certainly help, and maybe you could try putting a satin sleep cap over the pineapple? Its all trial and error, braiding hair at night works for some people there will be tutorials on YouTube if you have trouble.

When I first started CG I did the pineapple, and thought it didn't work. Then I discovered the satin pillowcase. That mad e a huge huge difference.

I have fine curls that get "bent" in pineapple normally. Satin pillowcases work really well for me- I don't even bother tying my hair back at all!

I've heard of people braiding their hair, but this also changes my curl pattern too much.
