How To Pineapple Natural Hair & SAVE Your Curls! [Natural Hair Pineapple Tutorial]

LOOK TO THE LEFT OF THIS PAGE and SHARE THIS article on Facebook or Twitter for your friends, it will help us keep providing free info too!

When you see a natural hair pineapple you realize that the genius of the Natural Hair community is ALWAYS on display. The different ways that we invent homemade natural hair & beauty products and creative ways to protect our lusciousness in order to keep the curls POPPIN' never stop! And one great example of this is the nighttime hairstyle started by beautiful naturals called "pineappling".

When you stop over-shampooing your hair, it's a MUST that we find ways to make that BELOVED wash day definition last much longer. And guess what boo!! Pineappling is a wonderful technique for preserving those precious curls while you're rolling around in bed (snoring all loud, lol), giving you your best 2nd, 3rd and even 4th day hair.

What is a Natural Hair Pineapple Protective Style

Gotta love that protective pineapple, haa. The natural hair pineapple is a loose, high ponytail on top of your head, that prevents the frizz, knots and flattened curls that come with lying on a pillow. This way, only the sides and back of your hair will be subject to your tossing and turning.

What You'll Need To Pineapple Your Black Natural Hair

The scrunchie or ponytail holder should be loose/tight enough that you loop it around your hair just once if possible. This stops a dent or crease from forming while you sleep. Many naturals prefer to use a satin scrunchie to stop accidental hair breakage and that depressing feeling of tearing hair out with normal hair ties. Ugh...

Many natural ladies also wrap their natural hair pineapple in a satin scarf or bonnet to protect their hair from the knots and dryness that comes with rubbing on a pillow, but if you don’t like to sleep with that on your head you can just sleep on a satin pillowcase.

What If You Have Type 4 Coils

If you have highly-textured type 4 hair, you may find that scrunchies or elastic still leaves an indentation in your luscious natural hair, if that's happens then you can pineapple just using a satin scarf and bonnet. This is especially helpful for shorter hair.

How to Pineapple African-American Hair

Now remember, this natural hair pineapple is going to be a very loose ponytail, so we suggest that you start pineappling it right before you lay down for the night. It may slip a little but your hair should still be protected and don't forget your satin pillowcase boo!

  1. BEND all the way forward.
  2. GENTLY gather your hair on top of your head.
  3. SLIDE a scrunchie, elastic or special No-Crease Snap-Off Hair Tie around the base of the ponytail only once (or as loosely as possible) The looser the better to avoid creasing.
  4. *OPTIONAL STEP: You can clip the ends of your pineapple to your head or try NOT TO pull the ends all the way through to create a loose bun.
  5. PUT ON your bonnet or scarf last.

How to Take Down Your Protective Pineapple

The pineapple takedown is as important as putting it up. You can’t simply take your hair out of a pineapple and expect to walk out of the crib, you'll need to perk things up with some light styling.

This is how our Type 4a Editor Amanda takes down her natural hair pineapple.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DM9KiMfGlCA

Now don't get me wrong, a natural hair pineapple is definitely not the only way to sleep with curly natural hair. If you've tried it and it didn't work for you, that's OK. We'll be highlighting other methods to protect the luscious, so stay tuned Lovelies!

Products Used Flexi Rod Hairstyles Tutorial:

Just a quick note, the "Can my relaxed hair be healthy" series turned out to be bittersweet for your homegirl (me). Last week I did a quick roller set.

This week I did a roller set on the large size green flexi rods and thought it turned out super great.

But then, two days later the humid and soggy (hatin') weather and my hair did not get along or play nice with each other and my dang hairgot it's butt kicked and definitely lost the war!

So, let be clear and allow the record to show that it is not just sistas with Black natural hair who have to fight against crazy humidity and rain showers.

Dfeinitely rained on my hair's little parade, lol!

Sistas with straightened and relaxed hair have to be on the lookout as well! I did, however, get to write down in my hair journal exactly what I did to my relaxed hair in my Healthy Relaxed Hair Journal and thank the Lord that I got a few nice hair photos  snapped before the bad weather took me and my flexi rod curls on relaxed hair out of the game for good.

Don't believe the myths. Always understand that relaxed hair can very much be relatively healthy as long as you take proper care of your tresses!

Healthy Journey Series | Maximum Hydration Method on Type 4 Hair

Products Used For This Method...

OK my melanista mama, here is the quick-list of the products used in her type 4 hair tutorial to get the final (gorgeous) results...

Problems & Concerns With This MHM Routine

Hey babe, nothing is perfect, and not everything is for everybody. So let's address some of the things SOME Lovelies have an issue with...

  1. Take a lot of time to do (at first...)
  2. Products used are bit pricey (for some folks...)

Addressing problem #1 - OK, we admit it. This type 4 natural hair routine may look like high-maintenance and like hard work but don't worry. The Maximum Hydration Method trains your 4C hair to be and stay moisturized over time.

After a while of this, the time required to make your hair look super-defined will be less and less until you only have to spritz water on it.

In fact. The more you keep your hair moisturized and defined the juicier your hair becomes. So even if it looks dry the first time around keep doing it, your hair will get used to being moisturized and defined.

Addressing Problem #2 - Products Too Expensive? Well, it really depends on who you are, how important the final results are to you and how bad you want the POPPINGEST OF CURLS.

Some women feel the Kinky Curly natural hair products are so expensive and are scared off by the price tag and the same can be said for Camille Rose's hair helpers. At the same time though, other Lovelies are snatching these products up like hot cakes.

Who am I to say? It's your call. By the way, before ending this article I want to post another very video that shows many details about the Maximum Hydration Method on type 4 hair as well. Check it out below!

My hair is just like hers and gets as much definition, if not more, with some Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex conditioner, a little coconut or olive oil, and some eco styler gel on wash days. I’m glad she found what works for her though...

- Michelle T.

I honestly did not know doing a wash n Go on 4C Hair was possible. I’m a believer now 😍 I can’t wait to incorporate this into my hair routine!

How To Regrow Your Hairline and Edges

1. RELEASE TENSION: Newbies make the mistake of always wearing their natural tresses in a puff. Usually pulled back a tight elastic band, this is a major no-no. After a while, it starts to tug and pull at your edges, making them fragile and thin. Regular ponytail wearers should also take heed. Don’t wear a ponytail style for longer than two days. Let your hair breathe.

2. STOP INFLAMMATION: Inflammation is the culprit for most hair loss. The scalp may be damaged or irritated, causing the edges to thin and fall out. If you have a sensitive scalp plagued by psoriasis or dermatitis, sometimes oils can make it worse. Try switching to pure vegetable glycerin for your edge and scalp remedy. Those who can use oils should try massaging Jamaican black castor oil onto the area everyday.

3. LEAVE OUT YOUR EDGES IN PROTECTIVE STYLES: Make a special request to your stylist to leave out your edges when getting a faux curly style to ensure that they will not be pulled to the high heavens for six to eight weeks. When wearing braids, tell your braider that your edges should be braided securely but NOT tight.

4. USE ROSEMARY & THYME ESSENTIAL OIL (SOOTHING FOR DRY EDGES): These are both anti-inflammatory and soothing when added to carrier oils like olive, sesame and castor. If the herby scent is a bit much for you, add several drops of grapefruit or lemon essential oil for a yummier aroma. Rosemary & thyme both encourage growth and give the slightest tingling sensation that increases blood circulation to your edges.

Also, how to slay your edges with little-known tricks...

PROTECTING and CARING for your natural hair edges, you see...

How to Regrow Your Hairline Edges

Her's what some in the medical community has to say about how to regrow your hairline and how to regrow edges....

“The hair around the hairline is finer and more fragile than the hair strands throughout the rest of the scalp,” explains trichologist (hair & scalp specialist) Kari Williams, who works with Brandy (Ray Jay's big sister), Meagan Good, and Hollywood actress Ava DuVernay (of "When they see us" and more), as well as Willow Smith.

When it comes to knowing how to regrow your natural hair edge and baby hair she knows her stuff... the celebrated scalp specialist goes on to say...

“Additionally, the hairs around the hairline are manipulated, brushed, and pulled more than the other hairs, which increases their fragility.”

How To Regrow Edges On Natural Hairlines Fast

You know the expression you are what you eat. External changes can come from your diet, the vitamins you consume, and changes that happen internally, like hormones. Maldonado recommends consuming over-the-counter vitamins, saying, "you will see a difference in your hairline after about three months of taking hair-regrowth supplements." He adds, "but remember, this difference is more of a filler and helps to strengthen the hair, and help it grow faster." If you're looking for major changes in the thickness of your hairline, he says, "the best way to regrow it is by taking supplements or a certain medication prescribed by your doctor."

Whether or not you're experiencing changes in your hair, a daily multi-vitamin should be part of your regular regimen anyways, as well as an overall healthy diet full of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein and plenty of water. As for additional supplements, Nutroful and Viviscal are among Madonado's favorites, as they are both natural daily supplements.

Castor Oil Helps Big Time With Edges

We all know about the benefits of Jamaican Black Castor Oil for growing out your hairline and boosting regrowth of stubborn, fading edges...

Castor oil has many uses, the raw one, unrefined, unmixed etc. is a one stop shop. But the raw castor oil smells way better than the Original Jamaica Black castor oil. I remember trying the original Jamaican black castor oil and praying for the bottle to finish. It’s hard to be in a relationship when your hair smells funky every night, so it was such a relief when I found out the Jamaican Black castor oil comes in different scents.  The one I am currently using on my hair line is the one that’s mixed with coconut. What a relief!!!

The Jamaican Black Caster oil is great for hair growth and hairline, trust me, I’m using it and I CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE. It’s been a month now and I’m happy with the product. Its yellow brow, not good for white sheets and pillows so make sure you put it on in the morning and later in the evening sleep with a conditioning silk cap to prevent your hair product from staining your white sheets.

I'd recommend this Jamaican Black castor oil only because I see a little difference and because its the only thing I’ve tried (on its own) that’s worked.

Due to its Riconeleic acid, a special fatty acid found in the hair growth oil, and the presence of Vitamin E, absorption of this edge growth tag-team can increase your white blood cell count (aka lymphocytes) and speed up the toxin removal process to promote baby hair edges healing.

To make your hair growth JBCO even more powerful, you can try mixing several lighter oils with JBCO to help in regrowing your thinning edges.

Finding a mix of oils that work best for your natural hair will take a bit of experimentation, but mixing one teaspoon of the tried-and-true oils such as jojoba oil, coconut oil, and extra virgin olive oil is a good place to start.

Do Protective Styles Protect & Regrow Your Edges??? Many Don't...

Restrictive styling restricts your hairline regrowth goals. If you're a braid lover, make sure to take a four-week break between protective styles to give your hair a rest.

Use The Right Vitamins For Regrowing Edges

Why not use Vitamin D and invest in Biotin? Make sure to thoroughly read reviews for quality vitamins before buying.

Adam Friedman, a program director at The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences, is on the same page as Romanowski. "While it does have antimicrobial properties which may be useful in terms of fighting off bacterial or fungal overgrowth on the scalp that can lead to hair-damaging inflammation, there is zero evidence [showing] it is helpful for hair growth," he says, adding that some people can actually be allergic to castor oil and experience inflammation, ultimately doing more damage than good to the scalp. "To propose that castor oil accelerates hair growth, a tightly regulated process (one centimeter per month) for which FDA approved medications for hair loss do not impact, is ridiculous," he states.

Well, there you have it, folks. Without legitimate clinical evidence, there's no way of telling whether castor oil is the hair-care cure-all some people claim it is. That being said, as long as you consult your doctor first, there should be no problem with you experimenting with it on your own to see how and if it works for you. At the end of the day, we're not calling anyone a liar, but facts are facts, so until there's more science-backed information on the subject, it's best to take any glowing testimonials with a grain of salt.

Transitioning "Scab Hair" & Follicle Shape Change Theory...

If you have not read about scab hair or how to change hair follicle shape you may not have the information needed to get the best har ever.

You need to get in touch with certified trichologist (hair and scalp specialist) and health scientist, Audrey Davis-Sivasothy, you are missing out on a WEALTH of information.

In her book The Science of Transitioning: A Complete Guide to Hair Care for Transitioners and New Naturals the health scientist shares some interesting insights about the "scab hair" phenomenon and how the Follicle Shape Change Theory plays a major role. Below we share some of what we learned from her book and you'll also get links to her best-seller works at the end of this article. Check out what we learned from her about...

Perming and It's AFTER-EFFECTS of SCAB HAIR when Transitioning

The Science of Transitioning:: A Complete Guide to Hair Care for Transitioners and New Naturals  scab hair - how to change hair follicle shape
Book about scab hair & theories on how to change hair follicle shape

According to the scalp specialist, one major way that perms and other relaxers may have an effect on your scalp can be heard in the natural hair community's debates about the myth or reality of "scab hair". Since it's impossible to form an actually scab on hair follicles we'll refer to it as "transitional hair".

Transitional hair is a phenomenon that many new naturals experience just after their Big Chop, and it is defined as a combination of dry, wiry and semi-straight natural hair that does not have a defined curl or coil pattern, even with the best curl defining products.

This transitional hair (aka "scab hair") is usually isolated to the first few inches of new growth that emerges after you've stopped relaxing with chemicals. Nobody knows for sure what the cause is for these changes to your hair - but there are some really good theories and we'll talk about it right now.

According to the "Follicle Shape-Change Theory", extra-dry, unpredictable transitional hair is caused by actual physical changes to the hair follicles' structure as a result of the long-term use of chemical relaxers, this causes many natural-haired Black women with newly big chopped kinky hair to wonder how to change hair follicle shape.

Don't worry though, if you're new to going natural, you should know tha transitional hair is a temporary newly natural hair situation that is usually resolved as your healing hair follicle heal up and the hair grows and settles into its permanent natural arrangement.

Some naturals are convinced that "scab hair" is a hair care industry myth or that it's something that was dreamed up by new naturals and transitioners to explain away their unwanted hair textures.

But for those who feel they have experienced "scab hair" or transitional hair themselves, but scab hair is all too real. But, since there's no specific scientific research to prove or disprove that transitional hair exists, theories are all we have to work with at the moment. It is easy to  see what newly natural women are going through though. This is not imagined or paranoia.
