I start school in a week and I don't have time to wash in the morning b/c the bus comes at 7. Any ideas how to sleep on my curls without smashing them? (I have shoulder length 3b hair)
3a/3b very frizzy and curls are undefined.
Co-wash: Suave Naturals Coconut cond.
Rinse-out: Tresseme naturals cond. w/ aloe vera and avocado
Leave-in: same as rinse out
Products: HESMU gel

    i just put all my hair up in a loose pony tail or loose bun, when i wake up its still a bit damp from my shower the night before, easy to style, just need to shake it out and i put aleo vera gel through it to get the knots out :)

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

    You could try plopping/plunking before bed. Your hair has to be wet.

    After your hair is wet, put all your styling products in it, then flip your hair upside down.
    Lower your hair into a microfiber towel or a long sleeved t-shirt. Your hair should be in a pile.
    Cover the back of your hair with the towel or shirt. Then roll the corners/sleeves and wrap them around the back of your head and tie them.
    Next morning undo it and your hair should be fine. You could use some refreshing spray or pomade if you need to.

    I've never done it but i've seen it on the naturally curly website and jessicurl's website.
    3b or 3b/c biracial teen hair.
    Shoulder blade length and highlighted.
    A mix of fine and medium texture with medium density.
    Frizzy and dry! Mostly frizzy.
    Use sulfate free shampoo. Condition daily and deep condition weekly. I use Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger collection with DevaCurl AnGel. Sometimes use Infusium 23 moisture(ologie) leave in conditioner too.

    If hair's dry, pineapple (put it in a loose poneytail with a scrunchie on the very top of your head, not at the crown - at shoulder length, some will probably fall out, but that's OK) or spread it out on the pillow behind you, preferrably with a satin or other slick pillowcase.
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!
