I have been asked on several occasions what my nighttime routine is and I'm here to show you.
Step 1: I use a satin pillowcase- it reduces friction to my rizos and aids in maintaining moisture. Another benefit is that it reduces stress to your skin!
Step 2: I lift my hair from underneath
Step 3: I lay down with my curls over the folded over part
Step 4: SLEEP!

Just that simple! (Well with some hope that I do not sleep crazy)
I reseal my hair with 100% argan or grapeseed as needed before bed.
NOTE: I have attempted the "pineapple" method but it does not work for my hair texture or haircut. The imprint of the hair tie stays in my hair and I have had to wet and reapply products too often. I also have tried using a satin bonnet and it just ended up on the other side of the bed.
Regardless of your routine, I suggest using a satin pillowcase, scarf or bonnet. Not only are they affordable but your rizos and your skin will benefit big time!
