I have had success with overnight plops, as well. Typically I just plop for a little while (anywhere from 15 mins to an hour or two, depending on the demands of the day), then style. But I will do overnights on days when I have to get up really early and know 2nd day hair (even and updo) isn't going to be an option.

A couple things about plopping:

Hair length makes a difference. The shorter your hair, the less effective plopping will be. And even with plopping success - it will probably need/like less time in the plop the shorter your hair is.

Overnight plopping for me - I use LI, seal, and a light-ish gel. In the morning I take the plop down, usually spritz with water where it is "too dry", scrunch lightly with a flour sack or MF towel (sometimes even the one I plopped with), and then I'll either diffuse or air dry from there.

Straight out if the plop it looks a little... Odd sometimes. So I have to go through those quick steps, and it fixes any issues.

HTH!
