Sleeping on curly hair

MCLKMCLK Registered Users Posts: 11
What to do while I'm sleeping? My hair is almost always weird and frizzy after I sleep on it, unless I put it into a bun before going to bed, which is kind of uncomfortable.
Thanks for any tips, suggestions, product ideas, etc.

    I am such a sensitive sleeper, i don't know if i could sleep with ahead cover on. I should try the pineapple, but isn't it best to do that with a cloth scrunchie, yes? I need to get one of those...

    I do braid my hair before bed so i dont get knots though.
