What do you do with your hair when you shower?

This might sound like an odd question but when you shower (and your not due to wash your hair) what do you do with it. Now I'm mostly asking people with longer hair, because if you put it up in a bun and then a shower cap, wouldn't it leave marks on your hair (if that makes sense, like it would bend the hair).

Basically I want to know if you use a shower cap and if you do put your hair up, what do you do to it after to make it not bend funny?

    I just put a shower cap on. I use to leave it loose but it got long enough to get in the way, so I just cap it. Just shake it out after.

    I am a 4 type though if that matters.

    I have short hair, but for what it's worth I spray my hair with curl refresher and moisturizer before I get in so the humidity from the shower doesn't mess it up, and that seems to work well.

    I twist mine up in an octopus clip and put a shower cap on. Initially my hair looks like I wrecked it when I get out of the shower and take out the clip, but then it settles down and falls back in place.

    This is basically what I do, except I use the Curl Ease towel.

    I tie my hair with a scrunchie in a low, half ponytail, dry plop and use a shower cap. If I want to have a bath, which is quite steamy, I apply some LI beforehand as well.

    Basically, the low ponytail pulled most of the way through give my hair waves in the right places.
    Hair Type: Fine, 3a

    That was only for when it's straightened. When it's curly I just put it in a shower cap.
