Sorry, not sure why they're not in order.

I don't have pics, sorry, but I recently discovered something regarding refreshing that might work for some of you. When I wash my hair, I do it the night before, plop for a few minutes, scrunch in a little gel (BRHG), then cover with a silk cap and sleep on it. It always comes out great the next morning, but subsequent mornings not so well because it gets increasingly squashed, frizzy, and just generally a mess. I tried all sorts of ways to refresh, but if anything, it looked worse after I messed with it. I finally realized that if it works to leave it overnight after washing, why not try refreshing at night and seeing how it looks in the morning? Voila, success! So now I wet my hair down pretty well with a spray bottle (very damp but not dripping), rake through small amounts of conditioner (Tresemme Naturals Moisture) diluted with water both flipped over and upright, scrunch a bit, and slap that silk cap on. Then shake a bit in the morning and it looks the same way it does after I wash. I'm actually on fifth (!) day hair today and it still looks good despite rain.

I shower at night and go to sleep with damp hair.
Picture one I pineapple with a jaw clip.
Picture two taken down from jaw clip. Picture 3 is after using a spray bottle to dampen hair where needed and apply my styling conditioner.
Picture 4 I apply the jaw clip to top to lift roots while getting ready.
Picture five after getting ready. Still damp.

So here are mine- I pineapple religiously and usually get even third or fourth day hair. However, after I've pineappled, I usually have to pull the front back in someway since my "bangs" don't usually look good the next day. Today I used a headband.

I use a claw clip for pineappling too! I use the large octopus claw clip, love it. My hair is not thick enough for a scrunchie or band to be held with only one loop. But two loops leave my hair flat. So it's gotta be a clip. Put it at the top of your head like a pineapple and you can't feel it. Nikki uses a Goody flexible hold hair clip, which is also an option.

It's definitely interesting. O.o I can't pineapple yet either... I'll see if I can find a decent claw clip around!

A 2C, hopefully something more as my hair gets redefined. Lots of chemical/heat damage to get rid of! Currently at shoulder length, aiming for mid-back.

(Any HtBlack you find anywhere on the internet is most likely always moi! :3)
Freshly air dried and some of the crunch scrunched out.
And the second and third are after I slept on it without my satin case in a pineapple...not bad but definitely a difference. I don't try to refresh them. I wear them as is or style it up or however.

But it gives great root volume for days 2&3.
Agreed!! Love the volume I get from pineappling.

To the ladies thinking about the jaw clip. You really should try it. I couldn't get the pineapple right. My hair is very thick and it would leave a dent no matter how I tied it. The main reason why I started the jaw clip was because I was going to bed with damp hair the pineapple wasn't really helping my curls. My hair is longer now and the curls were getting smashed in my sleep bonnet. They were weird and straight. With the jaw clip I twist my pony tail and secure with jaw clip. This is the ONLY thing I've found to work. Braids don't work, pineapple doesn't work, loose doesn't work. Good suggestion for people that can't find a method that works.
