Ditto on what maxcurls said. I shower at night also and use a similar routine. I use a very generous amount of gel so my hair is pretty crunchy when I pineapple. In the morning, I spritz with water and let that dry while I dress. I'll sometimes use a tiny amount of conditioner or curl cream to scrunch out the crunch and I'm ready to go. I can easily get second and third day hair by pineappling at night, spritzing in the morning and scrunching with a light conditioner.
