There are three things you want to protect against when you go to bed:
The solutions are simple:
When my hair was medium length (i.e. up until just over two years of growth) I didn't always twist it before bed so I did have to deal with matting sometimes. Matting was not excessive every time but as my hair grew longer it became a real problem so I stopped going to bed without twisting my hair, even after a long night out!
Matting gets worse and worse the more nights you go to bed without twisting your hair.
