Weekend Wrap Up- The Pineapple FAIL Edition

I had my hair out on Friday in a braid-n-curl and tried to preserve the look by pineappling(is that even a word?) my hair.



So, at the end of the night, I put my hair in a very high loose ponytail then wrapped with a satin scarf. 
I was left with this mess. LOL. 


I didn't even want to try and work with this, so I just put my hair back in twists and called it a day. Luckily, I already washed my hair before removing my twists, so I didn't have to deal with dirty hair. 



Look how much thicker my roots look!!! 
Shrinkage!



What did you do to your hair this past weekend?

  1. lol Hey at least you tried. I've never tried "pineappling" before. As for this weekend, I didn't a darn thing but moisturize my cornrows, throw my wig on, and go to work.

    Oh and I like the new blog look. I haven't been blog surfing in days so I really don't know how long ago you made the change.

  2. This weekend I did my first successful bantu knotout for which I am very happy about. I think this will be one of my summer go-to-styles. Now to perfect the braidout. Check out my blog for the pics. BTW I love the way your twist come out. If I had the patience I would give it a try!

  3. I tried pineappling for the first time last weekend in an attempt to preserve drop curls (also a first). It was a complete FAIL. I woke up with my scarf completely off my head, the back was straight, & the rest of the curls were all over the place & on their way to being straight. It was still cute enough to wear with a headband for the day but I was so sad I lost all the curls after 1 day.

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog. I tried doing pineapple similar to how you did and it was an epic failure:

    However, I tried again, but this time, I mini pineapples and my braid out lasted all week long!
