    Depends on your hair.. will you be able to sleep in a loose ponytail (aka pineapple) and/or a satin cap? From what I gather this is how you maintain a twist out overnight.

    I've done twistouts and failed almost everytime.

    I've done pineapples, but not to preserve a twistout, just to preserve my wash n go, and that worked well for my hair when it was longer.

    I don't use a satin cap, but I do have a satin pillow case.

    So separately, yes, I do these things, but not specifically for twistouts since a twistout does nothing for my hair.

    Hey pineappled my hair last night. It flaten my hair. I had to wet it and wear it up in a wash and go style. So the verdict for retwisting at night is in for me...

    Was your pineapple loose or tight near the roots? If you do it tighter, then your roots can straighten out and give you limp/looser hair..

    Back when I would do the pineapple, I expected the roots to get a bit stretched so I would also re-spritz in the AM to get the curl back.

    How did your twist out turn out?

    I use Bee Mine Curly butter to hold the twists, and at night I usually put it in a high bun with a sleep cap. When I wake up I just retwist a few strands.
