I use to do the pineapple method before I cut my hair but now its too short and i get the same problem.
I pin the sides back being careful not to stretch out the curl and it works for me. Also I do two pineapples so there is less stretch.
Make sure your either sleeping with your silk or sating sleeping cap on or with your silk or satin pillowcase on your pillow.
Hope this helps.
