Hi naturals, aspiring naturals, and those that just enjoy reading about hair in general. I’ve been talking about pineappling a lot this week. In fact, a few people stopped me and asked about the process for maintaining curls after a braid-out. It’s just as important to learn how to maintain a style as it is to create it. After all, upkeep and style maintenance is what helps us to prolong a look that we may have worked so hard to achieve. Hence the pineapple. Pineappling is the term used to preserve the “look” of the curls, waves, and kinks after a braid or twist-out. I even saw a video once, where a young lady used the pineapple to preserve the curls after having her natural hair blow dried and curled. It’s my tried and true go to method of keeping a style for days and days. Heck one time it preserved my braid-out for a week without me having to re-braid. It’s so simple but yet effective. Enjoy the video and I hope it answers a few questions about “How to pineapple and preserve the curl”.
