How to sleep with gel in hair

I want to do a wash n go, but I don't know how I'm supposed to sleep with wet hair. My hair takes a long time to air dry, I don't currently have a hair dryer and I have no idea how other people can sleep comfortably with wet hair. Doesn't your pillow get wet or dirty?

    You could try plopping. I would recommend doing it with a large silky/satiny scarf as opposed to a t-shirt since it'll be better for your hair.
    Probably 3A. Fine. Normal Porosity. Medium or High Density

    If I have to go to bed with wet hair, I try to sleep on my back and drape my hair over the pillow (I try to fan my hair out over the pillow). This usually produces OK results (though not great ones). It's kind of a pain.

    I can't sleep in a plop because my hair is low porosity and will not dry in a plop. I wake up with wet hair.
