    Default How to sleep with long hair?

    I have get to find the beat way to sleep with my wish length hair. I usually sleep with a French braid but I'm not a can of the waves after. I also bun it on too of my head but I get knots all around my bun, wven though I have a will pillow case. So are there any other ways I can put my hair when sleeping?

    I am FTL+ right now (+1 inch), because we are 2 months into the year and I started FTL clean at year's start. But anyway (LOL)... I still sleep with it loose. I fold it underneath my head a few times, and I barely move throughout the night. So it's what works for me.

    If you move a lot, I would loosely English braid (low braid), veeery loosely. I would not put a tighter braid like a French one or Dutch one in as you may cause breakage by moving around and on a tighter style it kind of can do that.

    I will be curious to see what people come up with.

    A sleep bonnet might be a good fit!

    A braid has always worked best for me. I don't do a French braid, just a simple English one. But since you really don't want braidwaves, I agree with lapushka that perhaps a sleep cap of some kind is the best option for you.

    Like lapushka - I generally sleep with mine down as well - and move it with me if I happen to move in the night (though that's not a ton).

    I cannot sleep in a single braid or bun as I get head/neckaches but can do well with two loose pigtail braids if I feel it's needed. (Also with you in not really looking for the braid waves.)

    I wear a silk sleep bonnet - very comfortable and keeps tangles away.

    I sleep with it down on a satin pillowcases. When I face towards the side of the bed I pass it under my head and lay it out infront of me, when I turn over to face the middle of the bed I leave my hair behind me.

    I can't bun it because it's uncomfortable and my hair isn't fond of braids (plus when I tried to do a loose one it just sort of fell down to the hair tie to form a tighter braid at the bottom).

    I'm a side sleeper. I sleep with my hair loose, just on the pillow behind me. If I role over, I'm awake enough to move the hair to the other side so it's behind me again. I find braids tangle my hair more than leaving it loose and buns are too uncomfortable.

    Me too. It's the easiest way to keep it contained without breakage for me.

    I tie it up loosely, to the top of my head, then braid. Then angle it across the pillow depending on the position Iím sleeping oh gosh, sometimes not being able to feel the weight of your hair is amazing ❤️❤️

    I wear it loose, but instead of piled beneath me or behind me, I have it piled above my head and pillow. I'm not a big fan of braids because they make my nape hair and underside tangle, and I'm more likely to pin my braid underneath me than my loose hair
