For second day hair I pineapple (ensuring all my curls are hanging down the front of my head/my forehead, rather than down my neck like a traditional ponytail would). Also make sure you don't tie the hair band when you pineapple - just place it round your hair once so it holds it, but loosely. This way it won't affect the curl pattern or give you that annoying crease!
Sometimes I sleep with a satin bonnet on (got mine off Amazon for only a few pound), but I don't always do that. It does help reduce frizz, but sometimes I find the bonnet will also decrease my volume.
I don't re-wet my hair in the morning (as, for me, this means frizz-central), but I know a lot of people have luck with that!
