Sleeping cap/ long hair

My hair is bra strap length now and I'm having issues with sleeping with my hair. I used to pineapple but my hair is too long. The sleep cap is too small. I began using a claw clip and doing a pineapple that way. It's worked very well but I noticed my front will get wonky. I'm thinking about getting one of the long sleep caps and letting my hair down inside of it. I usually sleep with damp hair. Anyone do this? I don't want to invest in a new sleep cap is my curls will get smooshed.

    I have long hair too and a sleeping cap smooshes my waves. I pineapple, but instead of pulling it all the way through the last time I only pull it partially, making a loop, with my ends at the top of my head. I also make sure my pony tail holder is relatively loose. This works wonderfully for me. I always thought its what a pineapple was! Lol then I saw a pic of someone and realized I'd never done it that way.

    My hair loves protein, plopping, and diffusing! Trying to find a way to style and air dry.

    I pineapple (only one loop) my between BSL & waist length hair and use a long silk sleep cap (prettyantoinette) to sleep. I also use a silk pillowcase. It smooshes my 2b/2c hair a bit, but I fluff it in the morning with various products to decent results.

    Wow...reading this thread made me realize that my curly length IS kinda long! Lol!

    I have to tuck my ends into my scarf. I tie a large satin scarf loosely around my neck with the triangle in the back...and then i lift the triangle up on my curls and the flap flaps over my head. I tuck my ends back into what now looks like a cone on my head. Sometimes i put my satin bonnet over the cone part.

    I also sleep on a satin pillowcase.

    Smiling I have tried the satin scarf but the knot was on my forehead (correct?) I fount it so uncomfortable. I then tried tying it to the side and couldn't get it to be comfortable.

    So the pineapple loop thing. Kind of like a bun?

    My pineapple is a regular pony tail on the top of my head; I use a scrunchy and it's only hair with only one loop. Hope that makes sense
