Buffs

SavagegirlSavagegirl Posts: 379Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
Has anyone tried the original Buff for sleeping? Pineappling leads to disaster for me and I'm hoping that a buff can just keep things together!!

    I wear them when I'm riding in the jeep with the top down or on a motorcycle but never thought to try them at bedtime (pineappling works for me most of the time). Certainly wouldn't hurt to try.

    I ordered one of the originals but it's taking forever to get here. Canadian problems. 😁

    I have one, but I feel like it’s too loose. I love my satin lined cap (slap cap) the most. It stays on all night.

    I had to google hair buff.  It looks interesting.  I need to use something now that my hair is getting a little longer.  I have satin pillowcase, but that makes me hot.

    A tip... when googling "buff for sleeping" be prepared to find out why sleeping in the buff is good for you!  :)

    I cannot sleep with anything on my head, but I can see how a buff may keep things together @Savagegirl.
    Haha! about google. I can't sleep with anything on my hair either and there are nights that I can't deal with pineappling. I wish I could (either one) as it would make my morning routine completely different.

    I have one that I use for sleeping, but I really don't like it.  RockyNCurls had a YouTube video about sleeping with one.

    Speaking about pineappling, I have gotten so used to it now I can't sleep with my hair down!

    @WavyKfromNJ Thanks for the video! I will have to try it out and see if the results are any different than pineappling!

    I swear I posted this here the other day (and also on the experiments thread) !!  Where did it go I wonder? : / 
    Anywho - the other night I did the "Buff instead of Pineapple" experiment. It was very comfortable, stayed on easily (my buffs are a bit loose since I've used them so much but  it still stayed on), and my hair had lots of volume this morning.  There were a few flat spots around my face but I just scrunched in a bit of water and livened them up.

    Love that design, Jeep!
    (Yes, I think the issue is that we have a couple of Buff threads going... my bad for not seeing this one before I started the other one! )
