what usually works for you in getting second day hair?

DolphinDolphin Posts: 329Registered Users
I like how my hair looks right now; but usually if I want it to look like this, I have to wash it the night before. I would prefer to wait until tomorrow to wash it. I sometimes put it all up in a cap, and that works, but are there any other ways you could suggest that usually results in good 2nd day hair?
Some 2b in the back, mostly (using FIA) 2c/F/iii.

Fine hair, normal porosity, and normal elasticity.

I'm still new to this CG stuff, so ANY tips you could give me are appreciated. :)

I have Celiac Disease, which means I can't eat or use products with wheat in it.

    I pineapple for 2nd day hair & sometimes I even get 3rd day. It's rare that I will not want to go 3 days (I workout almost daily) without at least a water wash @ some rinse out condish though.

    I'm actually planning on making some silk scrunches this weekend to help my pineapple:)

    I'm lucky because I can sleep on my hair without doing anything and as long as I spray it with a little water and apply a little gel the next morning, it refreshes and looks fine.

    My hair is always better on the second day.

    I sleep with my hair piled on top of my head. In the morning, I just spritz with water and scrunch. I sometimes add a bit more product, sometimes not.

    I sleep with it loose, just lightly dampen it and scrunch in a little leave in condish if its looking frizzy and pea sized amount of gel.

    Sometimes if the front is looking a bit wonky, I'll pin it up back do a half up/half down style
