A pineapple is the perfect curl-preserving technique for any time of the day. It looks super cute for daytime wear! To create a pineapple, pull your hair on the top of your head and secure it with a hair tie. Make sure the ponytail isn’t too tight as it will create indents (and hurt your head!) Then, simply leave your curls out at the end for an effortless look that will keep your curls intact!
Satin or silk scarves are KEY for preserving your curls, especially when you’re sleeping. Most curlies like putting their hair up into a pineapple before wrapping the scarf around their head. Just like a silk pillowcase, silk/satin scarves don’t create friction so no frizz or breakage!
Putting your curls into protective styles such as braids or twists are great for preserving curls, especially while working out. Protective styles ensure you won’t lose definition and they look cute too!
