For me I think it's wearing my hair down again the next day. At most pulling back the front and sides in some way. (Pulling back to a clip, braiding or twisting the front, etc) They are slightly looser than the rest, and since they get slept on they tend to have the most issues.
Other non-wash day hair salvages:
If my hair is still decent on the back and ends and not super tangly but still not quite good enough to wear down, I'll go low pony.
If its really bad but I don't have time to wash, etc, I'll put it in a twist or bun.
