    Wearing your hair in a pineapple and sleeping on a silk pillowcase are the most popular ways to sleep with curly hair.  You could also try medusa clipping (look it up on youtube), wearing a buff over your hair, or covering your head with a silk cap or scarf. 

    Most of us have to do some refreshing on day 2, by rewetting and adding a little more product. 

    But the most important thing to get good day 2 hair is to get good day 1 hair.  Try using more gel, or a harder hold gel.

    I also suggest sleeping in a hair buff.
