My Pineapple & Refresh Routine (For My Wash & Go)

Saturday, June 16, 2012

At my current length, this is what I do at night to preserve my wash and go - and how I refresh it the next morning (see picture and video below). I use my favorite leopard loc soc to pineapple my hair for bedtime, and I also make sure to sleep on a satin pillow case. The loc soc essentially helps my pineapple to stay put because my hair is not quite long enough to pull into a super high loose ponytail pineapple (what longer-haired curly girls do) without completely stretching out the curls and coils. With this method, I usually can get 2nd and 3rd day hair (sometimes even 4th day hair). But I prefer to do a fresh wash and go every 3 days or so, depending on how defined my wash and go was on the first day. When I had a Teeny Weeny Afro (TWA), I still pineappled my hair at night - but because of the short length I had to do multiple pineapples (click here to see how I preserved my wash and go hair at TWA length).

  2. YES, i thought it was a styled in the beginning! I was like...isn't this a nighttime routine vid?

    Just wanted to say I appreciate all the effort you put into your videos, the typography is gorgeous along with the pics and pretty much everything when it's put together. I mean You Tuber's put a lot into there vids but yours stands out to me and I predict you will have a very VERY successful blog/channel in the near future Have you written about what you do for a living on our blog? I just recently have purchased my first big item for my filming and photography majors and I'm jealous! lol. Also, our hair is similar but I must admit...I'm seeing green there too because even though I've got a 2 month head start as you, I'm EXACTY where you were at 1year ago. like..the measurements are on point.haha..im done ranting and raving now:)

    1. LOL Kam!! Heehee, its so funny because the reason I originally bought the loc soc was to wear out! But over the past year I mostly wear it to bed but I do still wear it out and about too - mostly out of laziness, lol. Thank you so much for your kind words :) I really appreciate you taking the time to watch my vids and read my lil' ole blog :) By the way, I love photography too!! It's a bit of a hobby of mine...I plan to do an about page soon on the blog and list the cameras, lenses and editing software I use :)
