5 Excellent Ways to Pineapple Natural Hair

For every event, pineapple puff looks adorable on natural hair and is incredibly easy to arrange. It can be a carefree hairstyle, or you can change the entire appearance by adding accessories, a bang, or styled baby hair. It’s also a fantastic option for a nighttime regimen for curly hair!

Continue reading to find out more about how to style your natural hair in a pineapple style for daytime ease and nighttime protection.

Pineapple Method for Natural Hair

A pineapple is a long, loose ponytail worn atop the hair. For people with coily or curly hair types, it’s the ideal 2-in-1 hairstyle because you can wear it both during the day and at night. Pineappling your natural hair before bed is a fantastic suggestion for the following reasons:

  • By keeping your coils from flattening, you may extend the life of your wash day results and create a healthier routine for washing your hair.
  • Frizz and breakage of the hair are caused by rubbing against the pillow. One surefire approach to stop frizz is to comb hair up into a pineapple.
  • Maintaining the health of natural hair requires preserving its natural oils and hydration. Using a pineapple technique aids in retaining moisture, and the effect is enhanced if you sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase or wear a hat or satin scarf on top.
  • Pineappling your hair for the night will also help avoid knots, which is another benefit that will convince you not to skip it because detangling natural hair can be quite the ordeal.

Bending forward, gather your hair closer to the front of your head on top of your head to create a pineapple effect. To ensure that a pineapple holds its position without tugging on hair, loop the elastic or scrunchie simply once or twice. If it does, you can wake up with headaches and an ugly dent in your hair. Using a satin scrunchie, which can further reduce any breakage, is another useful tip.

Choose a pineapple bun if your hair is long, or a satin scarf if it’s short, and don’t use a scrunchie at all. It would be better to clip your curls on top before tying them into a silk scarf if your hair is shoulder length.

Best Pineapple Hairstyles

Pineapple may seem like only one haircut, but there are actually five distinct ways to style it to change things up. Check out my method and play around with accessories to create the most wearable protective hairstyle for any situation.

1. Pineapple Pony

The pineapple puff is my go-to hairstyle. It’s simple to accomplish: just gather your curls with an elastic hair tie or drawstring ponytail holder. To liven up the look, I do apply my go-to Mielle Organics edge gel to my edges and add a few accessories.


You may also go a step further with the pineapple pony by giving your curls golden touches. In my instance, I choose to grow out my completely blonde hair. So, in order to get a distinct look, I chopped the blonde while leaving some tips. Take note of how the blond tips elevate the entire appearance of a pineapple puff!

2. Pineapple Hair with Bangs

When I have an occasion or just want a carefree look, this is one of my favorite hairstyles. I divide my hair into sections and leave a few curls out to get this look. My hair is longer in the front, so I pin up the curls with bobby pins.


This version of the same hairdo adds some stylish curtain bangs to the curly pineapple by sectioning and putting the bangs on the sides.

3. Pineapple Bun

A pineapple bun is a really simple and quick hairdo, particularly if you already own a wash and go. This is my day five hairstyle most of the time. I gather my hair into a bun using two elastic hair ties for this look. To keep the bun in place, I gently dab my edges with my favorite edge gel.


4. Half Up Half Down with a Pineapple

This look combines the best elements of flowing hair and the bun. I used curly clip-ins for extra volume and length in this look.

The half-up, half-down with bangs combination is another that showcases my three favorite hairstyle combinations. You should divide your hair into three sections: one for the leave-out, one for the pineapple, and one for the bangs.


5. Pineapple with a Scarf Wrap

Accessories make a tremendous impact when it comes to this look! A head wrap is a simple solution. This is just one of the many looks you can achieve with a scarf and pineapple on natural hair.
