What do you use while you sleep to keep the curls in tact?
*Shampoo - Tresemme Naturals (low sulfate) once every week or two.
*Conditioner - DEVA One (used for co-wash too). Yes To Carrots conditioner.
*Leave in - Garnier Fructis Clean styling cream & gel (DEVA gels are hit or miss depending on the weather. ULTA medium hold gel is also silicone free).
*Other likes - DEVA moisture lock spray, Ducks Clips (spray with gel first), diffuse 30 - 40%.

    I always sleep with a satin night cap. I have to put kleenex around the elastic or it puts a line on my forehead. It does a really good job, though. All I have to do is get up in the morn shake my head a bit, put some DC Mist-er Right in my hair, scrunch a bit and that's it!

    I second the satin sleep cap! I got mine from Sally's (they also sell it at Wal-Mart) and it has a smooth headband so it is comfortable and doesn't leave lines in my forehead -- plus it was cheap! :D It's called Stay On Satin Nites Bonnet Sleep Cap.

    When I use it, I don't even need to style my hair the next morning...just shake it out and go. I love it!

    I pineapple what I can and then bend over and use a long piece of Vet Wrap to hold the shorter pieces up while I sleep. Like a headband but down on my forehead. Of course I do look like I'm ready to going drumming for the Union Army, LOL!

    Wow. I'm amazed at how many of you can do that at all. There is no way on earth I could go without - at the very least - getting in the shower and drenching my head with water and re-styling every day. ...And I never even do that. I do all my stuff in the morning - every morning. Even if I co-wash (which I usually don't - I prefer a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo), I still go through the motions of "washing" and styling. So, I couldn't care less what my hair looks like in the morning. But, I do sleep on a silk pillow case to avoid tangles.
