Pineapple problems and sleeping at night
For the most part, I like pineappling because it does protect most of my hair. However, it seems to completely flatten my roots and make the top of my head look 'square'. Spraying with water helps a bit but but I'll still have odd 'dents' here and there, spots that curl deeply inwards toward my scalp. Has anyone else experienced this? Am I doing it wrong? I never twist the scrunchie, it's always loose. I hate the idea of fanning my hair on my pillow. I was thinking of trying a loc sock if I just can't get the pineapple to work. My hair is 3b and APL (most days

I know what you're talking about… You might try pineappling a little bit further away from your scalp. With my texture and density, I wrap my scrunchie around my hair two times. That doesn't seem to leave a dent.

I think Red-R is on to something. Maybe pulling it away from the roots a bit and moving it forward a little? I occasionally get a squarish shape but it settles down in a few min, especially if I flip my head forward and tousle the roots a bit. That happens when it's tighter than normal. I try to do a very loose ponytail but sometimes I forget and make it as tight as I would if I were wearing it in a ponytail for the day. As a rule, pineappling gives me more volume rather than less, so I'm a fan. It does pull the hair flat underneath in the back but that's not visible and the waves on top look fine.
