First day after wash w/leave-in conditioner is fine, second day terribly knotted. What should I do?

The top layer gets knotted, and the bottom almost turns into to dread locks over night. I really want to be able to leave my hair down, but if I don't brush it, it's a disaster. Once I brush it, it gets really poofy and looses a lot of definition. Ugh...frustrated! Hoping you can help!

i experience the same problem I also have the same curl type but with really big volume. I find myself washing nearly everyday due to knots and tats! 
i do have one thing that's seems to work I wash and apply leave in conditioner and then plait my hair into two tight plaits and leave over night to dry I then tale out the next day and have a really nice sleek curl different from my natural curl pattern I find that last a few days with applying oil in the morning to de-frizz!
Try the "pineapple" if your hair is longer - just put your dry hair into a ponytail on TOP of your head (use a scrunchie) and go to sleep that way. It will keep your hair from tangling as much overnight. You could also try using a satin or silk pillowcase, to reduce frizz and knots. 
Braids are a great idea, or try the "pineapple" if your hair is longer - just put your dry hair into a ponytail on TOP of your head (use a scrunchie) and go to sleep that way.
