How to pineapple long curly hair with a (deliberately)broken invisibobble

We all know that the way we sleep directly impacts how our curls are going to look the next day. I have befriended my favourite silk pillow case for almost 2 years now and it has made a huge change. I wanted to find out more or better ways to sleep with curly hair.

You will not believe how I found out a way that works for me. I was just fiddling with my invisibobble trying to stretch it so that it doesn’t leave a mark on my hair that it broke. And there! I had an invisibobble that I could fasten according to the thickness of my hair! Plus you don’t have to drag it along the length of your hair. What a happy mistake 😀 😀

Invisibobble Price : 350 INR/6$/ 3.75 GBP. You can buy invisibobble here(India), here(US) or here(UK).

  1. Cut the invisibobble
  2. Bend down and gather your hair into a pony tail
  3. Bring the 2 ends of the broken invisibobble around the pony tail and cross the ends depending on how tight or loose you want the pineapple.
  4. Twist the ends (like you make a plait) 1 or 2 times over each other so that it doesn’t open up.

 

There you have it! A pineapple for long curly hair that doesn’t leave a mark 🙂 Following this, you can put the pineapple into a satin bonnet or sleep on a silk pillowcase.

Why some sulphate-free shampoos are harsh

When I go silicone free every once in a while, I require a sulphate free shampoo since there are no silicones that would require the extensive cleaning of a sulphate shampoo. I’ve tried a few sulphate free shampoos but I’ve noticed that some of them are not at all gentle and some are actually harsher than sulphate shampoos *nods head*
