What to do with your natural hair at night is just as important as what to do with it in the morning. While relaxed we really didn't worry much about it other than making sure to not ruin the style but as we learn more about how to care for our natural tresses we find the importance of everything we do!

When developing a regimen, the same points are pounded into our heads- cleanse, deep condition, moisturize, do protective styles, and etc. but when it comes down to our nighttime routine, we’re given general tips, some that aren’t really universal.

Caring for your hair as you sleep is just as important as caring for it when you’re awake, and even more-so because what you do before bed can be the difference between your curls being on point and being a big matted mess in the morning. Whether you’re rocking a TWA or waist-length Locs, it is important to protect your hair as you sleep in order to retain moisture and preserve your style.

How to Pineapple Natural Hair to Preserve it at Night

via KalaG

What does "Pineapple" mean?

The pineapple is a great method for keeping your curly hair looking amazing while you sleep. The natural hair community created it in order to stretch out the amount of time between wash days. By tying your hair up on top of your head, you keep it out of the way and reduce breakage, tangling, and disrupting your curl definition. For highly textured girls, this is a great way to stretch your coils too, depending on the length of your hair.

There are a lot of variations on the pineapple depending on your length of hair. But the basics are below.

How to Preserve EVERY Hairstyle at Night

by NaturallyChelsea via NaturallyCurly.com

Oh, to be newbie again! I can only imagine the things that I would have done differently. I can remember only too well the many, many hairstyles that were spoiled from not having a good curly hair care routine at night.

This post is for all the curlies out there who just want to sleep in and not spend an hour in front of the mirror on a morning redoing a style. It is possible, there is a way and now you can master it!

Preserve a Wash and Go - Option 1 

The first popular method involves keeping the curls moist so that they do not dry in an awkward position while you sleep. Remember those days waking up to flat hair on one side and smooshed curls? Well, no longer! All you will need for this method of preservation is a spray bottle and a shower cap.
  1. Lightly spritz your hair with water then cover it with a shower cap. 
  2. Once you’re finished, put on your satin bonnet or scarf and hop into bed.
The slight moisture and your body heat create a green house effect, helping to keep your curls moist so you can simply fluff and go come morning.

Preserve a Wash and Go - Option 2

Another way to preserve a wash and go is to plait the hair. I know it sounds weird to plait your hair when trying to maintain the curl, but loosely plaiting the hair helps to not only get rid of first day crunchy hair, but it also helps to stretch it to get rid of the Jherri curl look. And because it’s done loosely, the curl pattern will be left undisturbed.
  1. Grab large random sections of hair and braid it loosely remembering to leave the ends (an inch or two) undone to preserve the curl at the end. Use ouchless headbands to secure the braid if it begins to become undone.
  2. Put on your satin scarf or bonnet and tuck yourself in for the night.

3 Easy Ways to Maintain Your Twist-Outs at Night

"I did some small twists and wore those for a few days and now I have the best twist out I've ever had. But I can never seem to keep the results for more than a day, and I REFUSE to put all those twists back in every night. Anybody have any suggestions on how to maintain the definition overnight? I usually just put my bonnet on and pray for the best in the morning!"
