Sleeping with Curly Hair

Day 1 with my curls always looks wonderful but I always have problems with maintaining them through the night into the morning. I sleep with a satin scarf but my curls always come out flat in the morning. This makes me want to rewash my hair in the morning but I know it's not good to wash your hair every day. Any suggestions?

You don't have to rewash it, you can just re wet it in the shower. That's what I do. I don't have the patience to bother with 2nd day hair.
You can also use a light leave in conditioning spray to refresh your curls with. I like the Creme of nature argan oil one
at night usually i braid my hair and then in the morning i unbraid (ofcourse lol) and then add conditioner and alittle water in my hands and run it throught my hair to refresh it

also the braiding stretches my hair alittle too

I sleep with a few braids depending on if I want to wear it to one side or in the middle and in the morning refresh with a little leave in and/or gel. It works wonders. What I've found is that if I'm patient, it gets better in about 30 minutes to an hour and then I'm so happy I didn't re- wash it. With a little practice you will learn what you need each morning, a little extra water spritz, or conditioner or gel or a mix of the three. Actually you can get 4-6 day hair doing this...well I have.
If you on Youtube, you can look up tutorials on night time routines and the pineapple method.
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

what i normally do is put it up in a high loose bun, but i dont really like it, cause in the morning my curls are a mess, so i wanna try tieing it up in a satin scarf.

my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
I wet my hair in the shower by running my wet hands through it. Then i put some oil(s) on it. I use OKAY Argan oil & Tee Tree Jojoba Oil along with Royal Roots Leave in Conditioner. Next i will seal it with Shea Butter. Then i will do about 5 cornrows. Sometimes i will let it dry a little before wrapping it or i'll put a plastic conditioning cap on it under my wrap to have it extra conditioned. The next morning i take them out, style it & rock it. I do this each night. I'M trying to figure out how to do that next day curls without cornrowing it or twists. Thinking about trying a natural hair curl cream.
