Hey pineapples! (Pinapplers?) Doesn't pineappling give you a dent where the pony holder has been all night? I am considering this for later on when my hair is long enough.

ohh, and it works a lot better if you sleep on a satin pillowcase!!(:
3b/3a, verrry thick; third try at CG(:
hg summer routine
co-wash- suave naturals coconut; rinse-out- generic value products matrix biolage conditioning balm; leave-in- MOP leave in conditioner; style- HESMU gel on humid days, fantasia ic gel on other days, followed by BRHG



oohh! good idea! where do you get a satin pillowcase
I never thought of buying a Satin sleepcap; I will definitely have to try it! My hair is very short, so I can't even get it into a ponytail, let alone pineapple it! I'd do anything to get second day hair. I've been having to shower and style it everyday!

I have a silk scarf which I got at TJ Maxx for about 10$ or so. I fold it diagonally and tie it on my head like a bandanna with the knot at the nape of my neck. 2 bobbypins at the top, and one on each side by my ears hold it on well.
My fiance thinks its hilarious but he loves that my hair isnt poking him in the face all night! and Im just happy that I can get 2nd day hair out of it by spritzing some water and a tiny bit of light gel!

for me, using massive amounts of gel the night before and clipping it seems to work. i just scrunch and go the next morning.

i pineappled with like an elastic hair tie since i dont have a scrunchy yet. will this dent my hair? and will it come out.

And idk if i would call it pineapple because I put it in a bun. It seems to work for me.
This is the sleep cap I use, bought at CVS:

I have very thick, just-below-shoulder length hair. This cap does NOT move at all at night, stays on great. I kind of pineapple the curls at the top of my head with my hand and then slip the cap on. Works great!
