Anyways, the one little gripe I have about having long hair is that it tends to try to strangle me when I sleep. So I've had to start getting creative because how sad would it be to have an official cause of death be listed as strangulation by hair while sleeping? I do french braid it often to keep it up and out of the way, but there are nights that I am just too dang tired to even think about trying to braid it. I've recently taken to using hair pins and pinning up in a sort of spiral-ish pattern like the picture below. With the hair pins they luckily haven't been digging into my scalp, though it isn't the best for your hair to sleep with them in. If I decided to fancy it up a bit I will do the bandana curls (from a prior post) or rag curls to sleep in.
