pineappple with long hair?

For those of you with longer hair, do you still pineapple? I loved the pineapple at first. But I'm wondering if my hair is too long for it now. I don't get 2nd day hair that much, but I do get alot of bad tangles from my hair not being contained at night that I'm afraid might be detramental to my long hair goals. I don't have a satin pillowcase yet, yeah I know, I should get one, but tell you the truth it's just 1 thing on a very long list of things I need to get.

    I did a length check the other day & flat-ironed. It is maybe 2-3 inches from the middle of my back when straight, otherwise 4-5 inches away when curly. This gives you an idea of how long my hair is & why I say the following.

    Every now & then I still try to put my hair up Pebbles/pineapple like at night, but it doesn't work because of all the length sticking out. I might as well be wearing it down for all the good it's doing.

    What I do quite a bit more of is, once I wrapped the ponytail holder around a high ponytail once or twice, I take & fold over the ponytail into a half bow shape. Then I wrap the rest of the base of it with the ponytail holder. It works wonderfully.

    ETA: Scroll down to Hillary Duff on the link. This is somewhat of a low/nape of neck version to what I was trying to describe.

    My hair pineappled the best when it was about BSL. Now it's back up at my collarbone and I'm growing it out again...but it's too short for a pineapple to go. I'm just WAITING because that really seems to work for me....

    I got a great idea from a fellow curly here - only pull the length half way through the last time. Works great for me!

    That's what I was trying to explain, but you said it in so few words! :lol:
