alternatives to the pineapple?

Like most school-aged curlies, I do my hair at night because i'd rather not go to school with wet hair all day! (takes about 5 hours to fully dry)

I'm having some issues with keeping my hair nice overnight! I used a satin nightcap for a while (just stuck my hair in it loose) but it always squashes the curls :( I can't pineapple because of my volume.. It's too big in general, but after a pineapple night, the volume is insane! (and not in a good way :P )

So, does anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm curious on this one too, everytime I have ever gone to bed with wet hair it turns out wonky the next morning (yes wonky is a technical term)

    3b/c mix; mixture of fine, med. and coarse texture with med-high porosity

    Current HG routine: Tresemme Naturals conditioner; AG Fast Food LI; AG Recoil; CJ CIAB = no crunch, lots of body and awesome definition :thumbup:

    Hi, you can try to put all your hair on the pillow of satin, and make sure he was not fuses under your neck when lying down.

    I have short hair and I can not make the pineapple to sleep well. Hence, when I lie down, stand up all my hair so that it does not get down on my head.

    I managed to be clear? rs

    If necessary, take a photo and publish here. :thumbup:

    I have class at 7:00 in the morning and have to walk (takes 15-20 minutes). In other words, I am done with showering by 6-6:15 or so. It's actually not that bad. Because of my length, satin pillow cases and pineapples aren't doing it for me; my hair always turns out bad in the morning..
