alternatives to the pineapple?

Like most school-aged curlies, I do my hair at night because i'd rather not go to school with wet hair all day! (takes about 5 hours to fully dry)

I'm having some issues with keeping my hair nice overnight! I used a satin nightcap for a while (just stuck my hair in it loose) but it always squashes the curls I can't pineapple because of my volume.. It's too big in general, but after a pineapple night, the volume is insane! (and not in a good way :P )

So, does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm curious on this one too, everytime I have ever gone to bed with wet hair it turns out wonky the next morning (yes wonky is a technical term)

3b/c mix; mixture of fine, med. and coarse texture with med-high porosity

Current HG routine: Tresemme Naturals conditioner; AG Fast Food LI; AG Recoil; CJ CIAB = no crunch, lots of body and awesome definition

Hi, you can try to put all your hair on the pillow of satin, and make sure he was not fuses under your neck when lying down.

I have short hair and I can not make the pineapple to sleep well. Hence, when I lie down, stand up all my hair so that it does not get down on my head.

I managed to be clear? rs

If necessary, take a photo and publish here.

I have class at 7:00 in the morning and have to walk (takes 15-20 minutes). In other words, I am done with showering by 6-6:15 or so. It's actually not that bad. Because of my length, satin pillow cases and pineapples aren't doing it for me; my hair always turns out bad in the morning..
