Default What are alternatives to wrapping my hair at night?

Can someone help me? I've wrapped my hair at night since a little girl and I want to find something new that won't thin my hair out.

Pin curling? but it doesnt really help if you want the straight look. I'm actually looking for an answer myself..

I make a braid in the back and tuck the end in. I then wrap my hair with a satin scarf.

I just tie my scarf around my pillow and go to sleep. I'm to ghetto for satin pillow cases!

Sometimes I tie a scarf around the front and let the back hang out to keep the ends straight, but usually I put it in a bun and put 2 Good Day Hair Pins in there to keep it in place. Then I tie it up and go to sleep. I usually wear my hair in a bun everyday anyway. Wrapping began to thin my hair too. My hair is thicker now than it has been in a long time.

If your hair is long enough, put it in a loose high ponytail with an ouchless, and put some rollers in the ponytail. Cover with a satin bonnet. In the morning, let it all down.

This is exactly what I usually do...but instead of a high ponytail...mines is a low one.

I learned a alternate to wrapping from a member here. Its called the mowhawk set. You take 3 or 4 rollers (jumbo if your hair is long), make horizontal parts and roll all the hair in each section on one roller. When finished it should look like a mohawk. Then you cover with a scarf. When you take the rollers down you can finger comb into place. This set leaves you with more body than a wrap and just enough bend to the ends to look nice. I think DatJerseyDyme (sp) is the creator of this set. Hopefully she will join in with a few tips.

I just find it easier to sleep if I put the pony up high. If it's on top of your head you can lay on your back, or either side of your head without the discomfort of the rollers.

My method: I comb my hair back (sometimes I even part it down the middle), loosely twist it a few times, and then pin it to the front of my hairline. I then put on my scarf and remove the pin. This keeps my hair straight and it's easy to style the next day, even if you don't wear a protective style.

I'll do one french braid going back; two plaits to the side or pin curls.

I do a "double-wrap" which is less stressful on your hair and doesn't make your hair do the 'gangsta 'lean'. I think Sylver does it also and she said she describes it in her journal. Basically you comb your hair to the back and you part down the center. then you smooth both sections around your head and they cross in the back. put scarf on. In the morning, just run your comb thru the back part 3 times and you are ready to go.... ends have a bump to them. U can search for the topic if you are interested....

Thanks for the compliment..I must say I've been slacking on the hair lately, but I usually moisturize with elasta qp mango butter, WGO, Aloe Vera Gel, coconut oil - or any combination of them. I usually wear my hair airdried in a bun or braidout, but when it is down, I try to do it everynight. Sometimes I get too tired!

Thanks again

I do something similar to the mohawk set, but I just make one horizontal part and take each section up and twist it to do a pin curl. I spray something on it (Surge is good) to keep it moisturized, but to mainly give it something to "set" it slightly so I can have a little curl. (make sure you don't spary too much on it to get it too wet, just a little moisture). I have one section that high on the top of my head and one section that's low in the back. I also tie a satin scarf around the edges to make sure my edges stay down, then I put a satin bonnet on top of my head and I am ready. If I have done a roller set, I am able to keep curls much longer with this method. If I have flat ironed my hair, it takes a little more effort to get a curl. I guess with the roller set, the hair "remembers" the curl or something.
