Protecting my curls and waves at night

I have wavy hair with some curls and never really did anything with it. Decided to up my hair game and got a shorter cut done to promote the curls. I’m using a leave in conditioner and curl gel. I am trying to figure out how to manage my hair when I sleep. I wear a cpap and the headstrap messes them up in the back. I decided to try something silk-lined and got a Grace Eleyae Adjustable Slap | Satin-Lined Cap Navy 

 it helps maintain the curl a bit better but my hair is totally matted down when I get up because the cap is not loose and the the head strap mashes it down.

 

 Not sure if I should get a silk pillowcase or a looser bonnet. Not sure I could make a turban work with the cpap strap. Having something underneath it also messes up the fit of the mask and I just had it refitted as it was bothering my nose.

@sprocketta  Loving the curls!!! I’ve been air drying my hair all summer and I just use silk pillow cases and my hair is still curly/wavy when I wake up. 

Re: Protecting my curls and waves at night

Do you pineapple your hair when you sleep @ather ? Do you notice that you have less frizz from using the silk pillowcase?

Re: Protecting my curls and waves at night

@Loretta55 @Nope just natural. I can’t sleep with anything in my hair. I’ve tried braids ponytails nothing. I get frustrated and pull it out. 

Re: Protecting my curls and waves at night

Try a wave spray @sprocketta . I use OUAI Mini Wave Spray 1.7 oz/ 50 mL  Verb Sea Spray 6.3 oz/ 186 mL . Spray throughout your hair , massage your roots , flip your head upside down and scratch away. It does make a huge difference.

If I can remember any additional waves sprays I will update.

@Loretta55 Do i put it on before bed or in the morning? Sorry, I’m stupid about this stuff. Up until now I put zero effort into my hair.

Re: Protecting my curls and waves at night

I spray it in my hair after I shower @sprocketta. Could you put your hair in a high ponytail before putting on the slap?

Re: Protecting my curls and waves at night

@Loretta55 A high ponytail is not a happening thing. I tried. 😂

Re: Protecting my curls and waves at night

@Loretta55 It’s pretty short but I will see if I can manage that tonight. My cpap head strap is really throwing a wrench into things.

Re: Protecting my curls and waves at night

@sprocketta  I use the wave spray when my hair is wet after I wash it.
