My hair never turns out good after sleeping as some people have mentioned. I have to wet it completely or "condition-wash" after sleeping and place product in my hair. Plopping makes my curls oddly flat and unappealing. The pineapple makes my hair have a weird bump in it and the extra volume at my roots is definitely unwanted. My hair is also extremely long (I recently cut off six inches and it is still about where my hips begin) so I have no idea if this makes a difference. I know this wasn't much of advice but maybe someone out there has the same length hair with 3B curls!!
