    I love the pineapple. My second day hair is my best hair day lately. The pineapple has a lot to do with that. I like the shape my hair ends up with and I don't lose volume.

    I pineapple to go to bed with a silk/satin scarf wrapped around myhead ( think "I Love Lucy"). I do find that my curls get stretched out a bit so I sometimes pin up the problematic sections & wrap my hair with the scarf. I am able to get 2nd & sometimes 3rd day hair out of this.

    I just take my hair and do what I read here: turn my head upside down and collect all my hair forward, then take a loose scrunchie and put it all in.

    When I pineapple I bend over and try to gather my hair together as gently as possible, so I don't mess with my curls too much. I make sure my pineapple is right on top of my head, not to the back or the front as that will make my curls weird. My hair always looks better on the 2nd day. It gets curlier.
    Mostly 3A/Some 3B Thick/Dry/Colored/SL

    Pineappling only seems to work if I also sleep with a satin cap. Otherwise, my hair gets dry and very tangled. How long is your hair? Maybe pineappling alone works best with short to medium length hair?
    I have 3c hair that I haven't straightened in over 5 years. It's just past shoulder length when dry, and almost waist length when pulled straight.

    Products:
    9/02/08 Went CG
    05/12/09 Still CG. Cowashing with VO5 Lavender Luster. I then condition with Giovanni Smooth as Silk. Styling with VO5 Lavender Luster conditioner with my wide-toothed comb.

    I tried it last night. Worked good for me kept my curlies from getting all frizzy and loved the shape of my hair cut. Left the pineapple in while I showered, then took it down and just shook it out sprayed with some glycerin.
    Very Thick dry 3b BSL.
    Fine, medium porosity
    Right now I am using GVP conditioning balm for cowash and RO,
    my hair loves protein.
    for styling my base is BRHG I can use it alone but prefer with Curl Keeper. I sulphate poo once a month or so as needed.

    I pineapple for second day hair, but I don't really like it. My hair gets smooshed because the pineapple never stays on top of my head. It always falls kind of low. My hair is bra-strap length, so maybe shorter lengths do have better luck with this??

    Medium texture/ Normal to low porosity / High density

    Shampoo- GTTT, GVP Paul Mitchell Tea tree Shampoo or ACV/ Baking soda (once a week)

    Yeah I think my hair is to long for it. i wear a bonnet and it still gets frizzy, and it never dries. My hair is almost past my bra strap now, so i think that may be it.

    Yup, I hear you. I tried pineappling for the first time last night but now my hair is all crazy. Lost some curls and the others just look weird! Had such high hopes. I will try again with a silk scarf .... just gotta find one!

    Since I have been pineappling, I too don't lose volume and that's why I love it. :love3:
