Does your hair stick up and not "come down" after you pineapple?

I have 3b/3c/4a hair and I'm new to the whole CG method but I'm trying. Anyway, I pineapple at night but then when I take it out in the morning my hair is sticking up and out all over the place. It's like it's got volume from the roots and I definitely don't need volume. It's like my hair doesn't want to "come down" if that makes sense. I don't want to have to wet it because to me that's not second day hair. Is there anything I can do that does not require me getting it wet all over again. It takes probably 8 hours to dry which is way too long for me. Any advice? Thanks!
and that is why i dont pineapple!!! how long is your hair? when my hair was longer, i got away with it a couple of times. but now that my hair is short, i get the indentation mark and my hair stands up! i tried putting my hair in a silk bonnet and then it looks all smushed together. when i had long hair, i would just wash at night and do an over night plop. in the morning, my hair wouldnt be 100% dry, but on the drive to work, it would dry up and look nice. but second day hair, i dont know what that is! lol. people recommend a silk pillow case. you could try that. or you can try diffusing...

CG journey began 2/8/09 - 4-08-09.. and then mod cg 4/14/09 -... 03/02/10- Barely CG but I like CG products
wash with Low Poo or Poo
condition with GVP Conditioning Balm or CJ BC Daily, Loreal Color Vive for Color Treated Hair Thats Normal
Leave ins- Garnier S&S; Marrakesh oil
style with - Ohm SHP; KCCC- BRHG or Boots- KCCC- BRHG; CIAB; CCCC
Protein- GVP Joico K-Pak
Play with ACV
I can totally see my hair doing that if it were shorter. but since my hair is about bsl It no longer sticks up, but I do have to pineapple as well as satin cap for the night if I want 2nd day hair.

Yeah I hear alot of girls saying they sleep on a satin pillowcase or with a satin bonnet on. also maybe you could try losening your pineapple or findin a way to clip up your hair so that you are not squishing your curls while you sleep.

Good luck to you.

Very Thick dry 3b BSL.
Fine, medium porosity
Right now I am using GVP conditioning balm for cowash and RO,
my hair loves protein.
for styling my base is BRHG I can use it alone but prefer with Curl Keeper. I sulphate poo once a month or so as needed.

Thanks ladies!

Well, right now my hair is probably a little past shoulder length but it's got long layers. It's just so coarse and stiff when I take down the pineapple the sides are sticking out at the temples and just don't want to come down. And the top, the crown, is going back and I want it to fall to the side and my sides to fall down like it does on day one of my "wash n' go". Body is the last thing I need! LOL
Mine sticks up and looks very strange until I spritz with a little water, smooth it down and pull it back as if to make a ponytail.

Yes, it's like topiary. On the weekend when I have a couple of hours, I let it come down by itself. During the week after I shower (keeping hair dry) I scrunch in some Devacurl Set it Free, pony puff it back again for a couple of minutes, undo and fluff, scrunch, fluff, scrunch.

I good water spritz or like SBB suggested Set it Free scrunching should do the trick in reviving your curls. Btw, I consider this 2nd day hair as long as you aren't co-washing and restyling again.
