If you have medium (awkward length) to long hair, use the pineapple method, where you place your hair in a scrunches. For shorter hair, they will be mini pineapples or ponytails so will need more scrunches. If you don’t love the pineapple method, you could go into the routine of re-twisting your hair but in bigger twists to maintain your curls. However, it can be hectic over manipulating hair by re-twisting it every night to keep them fresh the following day. Otherwise, it’s another option just in case the pineapple method fails. The good thing is both methods keep hair stretched and that is key for me.

Protect your hair with a silk or satin bonnet or scarf while asleep to avoid frizz and retain moisture. If you are uncomfortable wearing these, you could get yourself a pillow case with such material.
