One of our fave Instagrammers, @HalfieTruths, showed us how she pineapples her hair. "Pineappling" is used to protect curls while sleeping and preserve curls for that oh so elusive "second day hair." Practicing good bedtime habits will make preserving your hairstyle a breeze and showcase your hard work. Building a nighttime routine can involve several factors, but primarily how you prepare your hair before bed and what you’re sleeping on.
Many curly girls choose to pineapple their coils; that involves pulling your hair up into a high, loose ponytail and securing with a satin scrunchy or ponytail holder. This works to keep the hair in a stretched state overnight and also prevent your curls from being squished while sleeping. When you wake in the morning, just take the ponytail holder down, fluff, spritz with a leave in and you’re ready for the day. Pineappling works great when your curls are fairly fresh, but sometimes you may need to reset your style for the next day.
How do you protect your hair while you sleep? Do you pineapple?
