In the past I have plaited overnight and the plaits have not looked good enough the next morning. Now I plait overnight using hair gel, put a lycra hood on and leave until the next morning. The plaits come out looking immaculate (unless you have a hooligan of a horse!) and it just needs to be removed before loading up to leave and saves me having to get up at crazy o clock to plait.
