#L4LHair Tip Tuesday | 2 Ways to Preserve Curls at Night


Keeping our hair in tact at night is a challenge every black woman has dealt with since childhood.  From the stocking caps to the scarves and finally the bonnet and satin pillowcases, we’ve all used a plethora of tools and techniques.  Now, years later I have two methods that work REALLY well for me to preserve curls at night: pin curling and pineappling.  Best of all neither of these techniques require any direct heat, which makes them both healthy for our hair.

I pin curl when I have curls, flips or coils that I want to keep in tact.  I pineapple when I have waves (i.e. bantu knot, braid or twist out) or simply don’t have the time or energy to pin curl.  I always use silk or satin scarves/bonnets to cover and the next morning, I am still fine as wine when I take my hair down!

  • I did some pincurls the other night and it worked wonderfully! I can never get the pineapple to work for me 🙁

    Love this tip. The pin curls worked great. I would always roll down not up. Rolling up made such a big difference and no bends. Thank you
