Nothing!

I just go to bed.

In the morning, I will wash and / or condition it.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

 I bun it up. Or sometimes tuck it under my pillow.
It's got so long now it gets stuck in my belts and jeans after I pull em up.
Might be time for a trim lol

Wow, that's so long!  I think a bun could be a good idea at my stage, it is getting troublesome.

I vote NOOOO to a trim, but do what you must. I love it long. Think of all the beautiful ladies with butt-length hair. Alas, there don't seem to be as many as there used to be. I never quite made to the belt when mine was at it's longest and it's not thick enough for that length now. Enjoy your gorgeous hair to the fullest while you can, babe.

The belt thing gets annoying for sure.
I have so far avoid trimming it, it's is an old school thing though growing hair out long.
I always get people shocked at how long it is. They always come at me with the whole how did you do that?
I'm like I did nothing, I just left it alone lol

Someone told me today that I should go to the barber because if people did not know better, I might be looking more and more feminine to them.

I was not too sure what to make of that comment.

I did say that I like my hair they way it is and I take good care of it.

My hair is down past bra strap length. I put it up in a messy bun at the top of my head to sleep, otherwise I suffocate myself in my sleep or it gets caught under my shoulders or under my armpits.

My hair is shoulder length and I do nothing, but I probably would be more comfortable if I put on a soft headband. However I did try that a couple times and the headband came off during the night ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Just loose for now.  Not too troublesome considering the length.  Might have to address it later on though :)

I've always left it loose. But at its current length, collarbone, it's getting in the way more. Sometimes it gets trapped under my shoulder and I have to pull it free.

Sometimes now I tie it loosely back and that works well. I sleep on my side so I don't feel the lump from the hair tie. I'm going to tie it back tonight. It's especially frizzy today.

My smartphone thinks it's smarter than me. It's probably right.

That's why you don't tie in a low pony, but instead put it up on top.

I do nothing special with my hair before going to sleep.
I do make sure it is dry and combed out with no tangles though.

My hair when I wake up is a mess no matter what I do,
...every morning I usually take a shower...
so then I can blow-dry it and comb it out...

We should be happy and fortunate that we do not have “ uncombable hair syndrome.”

I always try and brush it out in the early evening before sleeping.  I eventually want to get back to the hairdryer after a shower every morning.  I've stopped rinsing at night however after a tut-tut from my stylist, lol.
