nighttime routine for short curls?

I have recently gotten a cut (yay!!!) And my hair is the shortest it has been in over 20 years. Prior to this cut I was getting great 2nd and 3rd day hair by pineapple-ing my hair and putting a silk cap over it (along with some products of course). Now hair is too short for pineapple. So what do you short hair ladies do to prevent nighttime curl crush? My hair is 3b-3c thick medium-texture corkicelli.

    My hair is very fine, low density 3ab and collar length. All I do is sleep on a silk pillowcase. I tried using a silk cap too but the elastic irritated me and the cap really squashed my curls.

    I wear a satin sleep cap and sleep on a satin pillow case. It's the only way my curls will last through the night. If I do one without the other, a complete morning rewet is guaranteed.
