I find that loose pineappling the night before has been the most beneficial to me when preserving a style. Beautiful Curls Reviving Tonic is also good for first thing in the morning. If my hair is completely messed up and undefined from sleeping on it, the tonic won't salvage it, but usually it's not too bad after a pineapple. The tonic great to combat some surface frizz and give my curls a bit of a boost.
