Wrap Long Hair

Q: So, I have a question: I'm mixed with black and white, and I have soft, long, curly hair. I blow dried and flat ironed my hair straight the other day. I go to bed with it up in a pony tail and a support scrunchy on the bottom of it. It usually helps, but I need another way, because it ends up wavy. My hair is WAY too soft to wrap, so is there another way I can wrap my hair so it won't end up wavy?
 
A: From what you describe, you want to find a way to wrap your long hair in order to keep it straight overnight so that it will be straight in the morning. Unfortunately, I don’t think this is a realistic expectation for your hair.
 
hair wrapped in a scarf       You admittedly describe your hair as naturally soft, long and curly. In spite of blow-drying and flat-ironing your hair - which only creates a physical change in the hair – the hair’s natural tendency is to be curly. Add to this that with your hair being long, even using a ponytail and scrunchy could to put bends and wave in the hair.
 
      The only solution I can offer is that you consider using a scarf to hold your hair to the scalp during the night, and refresh the straightening in the morning when you wake up and get ready to start your day. Even solutions like laying with your hair fanned out over a pillow wouldn’t help keep the hair fully straight.
 
      You MIGHT be able to use a neck pillow and an incline for the bed (such as is used with bedridden patients to allow them to remain in a more vertical position) with your head extending over the back, thus allowing the hair to hang straight throughout the night. This would require, however, that you sleep very still and only on your back.
