I get so many questions on how I preserve my hair at night to achieve second and third day hair. I even achieved 5th day hair from a rod set once! Yes, you heard that right-- 5th day hair! Can I get an, Amen?
The key is to pineapple your hair at night. What is pineappling? Pineappling is described as 'a quick styling method to preserve your hair at night to achieve multiple days of your hairstyle'. Below, I will give you a quick rundown as well as what you will need in order to pineapple your hair, so you can breathe new life into your twist-outs!
Here is what you will need:
- Large bonnet
- Satin scrunchie or oversized headband
- Satin pillowcase if you prefer not go use a bonnet
Follow these steps for Pineappling the hair:
Gather your hair at the top of your head in the middle
Use your scrunchie to secure your hair in a ponytail at the top of your head. Make sure your hair is in the middle of your head.
Cover your hair with your satin bonnet – I use an oversized bonnet since I have a lot of hair.
And that’s basically it!
I try to sleep on the side of my head so that I wont flatten the top. Make sure to keep your pineapple high enough at the top so that you can sleep on the sides comfortably.
Keep your hair oiled as well to prevent frizz. As it gets older try not to touch it as much so that your hair doesn't become too frizzy. I know this is hard ladies! Especially if you suffer from hand in hair (HIH) syndrome lol, but trust me you want to keep your tresses looking cute at all times 😉
