3 Ways to Protect Curly Hair While Sleeping

Shameless Maya Pineapple Curl2. “The Pineapple”

Preserve twist outs and coiled curls by donning a “pineapple” before bed. This protective hairstyle is the easiest way to keep your curls bouncy and frizz-free for the next day.

Step 1: Turn your head upside down. Don’t gather your hair on top of your head—you risk breaking up your ringlets.

Step 2: Create a genie-like ponytail at the very top of your head and secure with a hair tie. You want to loosely secure your ringlets, so don’t secure it too tightly.

Step 3: Sleep on your back. If you don’t have a satin pillowcase, use a satin sleep cap to safeguard your ringlets.

Step 4: Release your curls in the morning and style as usual. You will notice less frizz and damage to your tresses.

VV Tip: Feeling lazy? Rock your pineapple as a hairstyle the next day. The style is funky and looks amazing with full curls.
