    I braid mine. I do also plan to get a silk pillowcase too but I've been doing a lot of new hair things recently and finances don't allow for me to try everything all at once, maybe next month for that one...

    I use a silk pillowcase (about $25) and flip it up over the pillow, loose, for now.

    Finally a post for us in betweeners...we are long and we arent short, so were the heck do we fit in? I see from your pic you have layers just like me and that is beyond frustrating for me(about my own hair) because I feel like the longest part of my hair shouldnt count when I measure. I feel like Im cheating for some reason! But to answer your questions...I have been taking prenatal vitamins for the last twenty tw days, oiling with evoo, doing acv rinses, cwc, and laying off the heat and dye. I literally dyed my hair five times in the past two months...oh the shame!!! Before I found LHC I was washing, blow drying, straightening and THEN curling my hair on an almost daily basis and dying it regularily as well. Ive changed my ways though. Im just dreading that tell tale root sighting...I have naturally dark ash blonde hair and my color is a dark auburn right now, I look like Im going gray with my roots coming in....I may use a bridge semi perm color to ease the transition and hopefully the acv with strip some of this dyed color from my locks. Best Wishes- Belle

    You might want to look into using henna on your hair instead of the chemical dyes. It actually helps your hair, and could help you preserve the auburn color if that's what you want. There are several threads and articles about it on this site that can give you far more info about it that I could if you're interested.

    I sleep with mine in a high bun lately and I always use a satin pillowcase... one I like more than the other. I want to get a pure silk one though... but don't know where to order... amazon? My head gets very hot as is, and I flip the pillow to keep it cool :P

    Frogs, I have a silk pillowcase. But I'm known to slide off the pillow and wake up against the cotton sheets, so I wear a satin scarf or cap just in case.
