Well, my cousin's hair is like that, and if she straightens it at night then she has to leave it down because the ponytail holder leaves a crimp in it.
♥ Hope I helped.

Leave your hair down. You can also buy products that help keep your hair straight I buy a product called "stay straight and it helps keep mine nice and smooth and straight!

I have the same hair as you?! lol don't you hate it? Everyone says how lucky we are bc our hair isn't thin, but blah i hate it. Lately, I've been showering and blow-drying it "straight" with a round brush(at night). Also I use a de-frizz cream. there's a lot out there *ex. Frizz Ease*. Then in the morning i straighten it by layers. I put 3/4 of my hair on top of my head with one of those big clips, but you can also use a pony tail holder, straighten that part, take a 1/4 down, straighten that..ect. I've also heard that if you spritz a little hairspray in your brush and brush it through your hair it de-frizzes it- if you use more then it may help it stay straight during the day. If you have any more questions about your hair just ask!

i have long, thick, and frizzy hair as well. i suggest that you keep it down, because when you put it up the crease marks will show in your hair.
either way your hair will still be curly, but not as much if you keep it down.
get up 15 minutes earlier in the morning to do a quick re-straightening.

rockstarxlove answered Saturday August 6 2005, 2:31 pm:
well you should probably keep it down and not lay on your hair as much. Because either way your hair wont be perfect in the morning. You will probably have to straightn it in the morning again.

If you sleep on it, that's probably just going to make it frizzy and mess it up. You should wait to straighten it in the morning. :-)

When you put your hair up it gets wavy and creesed. When I streighten my hair I keep it down durring the night, and in the morning just go over it with my streightener to make sure it still looks good. I have long naturaly curly and frizzy hair and the way I do it keeps it streight.

Saynotogymclass answered Saturday August 6 2005, 12:15 pm:
I'd keep it up. I have the same kind of hair as you, and my hair stays straightened and there isn't even a crease from the ponytail holder.

When you go to bed keep it down but before you go to bed you might want to put some frizz control in your hair like John freida or some other brand, check at your local drug store.

Teza answered Saturday August 6 2005, 11:52 am:
Keep it down. But if your hair is frizzy I think you should get the John Freeda Friz Ease.. it will help out a lot. Then spray the straightening spray in your hair. I have this spray called Ion and you spray it in your hair and it wont damige it or burn your hair so it doesnt get split ends and get frizzy. Then I have this hair silk.. its also called Ion and you put it in your hair to tone it down and make it shinyer and not frizzy and poofy.

IndieKidsCanRock answered Saturday August 6 2005, 11:47 am:
&hearts;Straightening at night is definitly a good idea. As for going to bed, keep it down. If you put it up, there will be a wave where the ponytail holder was. Keeping it down will keep it exactly how it was, in the morning just brush it and it should look like you just straightened it.

Karen answered Saturday August 6 2005, 11:46 am:
My hair's really long so I usually put mine up and in the morning, I'll just restraighten it if there is a crease, caused by the elastic I used. You can either keep it up or down, it doesn't matter but it may wave if you sleep in a certain position. Putting your hair up will help it stay straight.

passionate answered Saturday August 6 2005, 11:25 am:
Well, you should keep it down. If you put it up and keep it that way then it will be wavy then next morning when you take it out.

I hope I helped!

Michelley answered Saturday August 6 2005, 10:06 am:
if you put it up you'll probably get a crease fromt he pony-tail-holder...and if you keep it down it mgiht just get a little messy and maybe a little bit un-straightend. either way you'll probably have to touch it up in the morning but i would try sleeping with it down and if that doesn't work then try sleeping with it up! using a scrumchie instead of an elastic might help too since it won't hold your hair so tight

The times I've straightened it at night, I just left my hair down. You might have to touch it up in the morning though. If you put it in a ponytail, you'll probably get a bump in your hair. That's what happens to me.

rainbowcherrie answered Saturday August 6 2005, 9:09 am:
Well I usually straighten my hair at night and then put it in a ponytail. It doesn't really matter which way you have it, it will stay straight anyway. Hoever, putting it up sometimes makes it get kinks in so you might want to leave it down. I only keep it up because I can't stand it going in my face in bed.
