How to preserve a style

I have medium length 4a/4b hair and I like to do braidouts because they are simple and fun. I also want to keep from manipulating my hair too much and most websites say the only way I can preserve a braidout/twistout overnight is by putting my hair in large braids or twists. Isn't that still overmanipulation? are there any other ways (besides pineppleing) that I can preserve my style?
