6 Words That Have Completely Different Meanings To Naturals

hair pineapple and pineaapple fruit

Pineapple – A tasty fruit but the traditional definition is: a large juicy tropical fruit consisting of aromatic edible yellow flesh surrounded by a tough segmented skin and topped with a tuft of stiff leaves.  

So sweet and so amazing and even better when you get it fresh from Hawaii. It is amazing but for naturals it has a very different meaning. Pineapple or pineappeling one’s hair is a nighttime technique to preserve hair taken from the fruit because you hair favors a pineapple when the technique is done correctly. 

All the hair is gathered at the top of the head in a high, but very loose ponytail with a ponytail holder. You will sleep with your hair like that on a satin pillowcase to also aid in preserving your style.  In the morning you remove the ponytail and either shake and use your fingers to coax your hair back down (if it does not immediately fall down) to give you back your voluminous style from the night before.
