Anyone else can't rock 2nd day hair?

My hair gets super oily and I look like a hobo.

    when my hair was longer i could get away with it more then I can now that it's short. I did wear second day hair the other day.. wasn't fantastic, rather frizzy but I just didn't have the energy to re-do it.

    I find my hair feels dry and my waves tend to drop second day. Have yet to figure out a second day regime.

    Aiming to grow hair to waist from buzz cut - slowly but surely.

    Mine isn't "short" but experience the same, when it was longer it was much easier to get more days without re-styling.

    So now most days I just stick my head under the faucet in the tub and re-condition, comb out and re-gel.

    Mine doesn't drop but it gets very frizzy and disordered lately even if I put it in a top-knot to sleep.

    I think if it's oily on second day, though, your scalp might possibly be overproducing from the daily washing? Can you try just rinsing with water on day 2, gently, and re-styling?

    Ha ha, I have the opposite problem! (I know you responded to the thread I started.) I wish I got good first day hair! But, all in all, I'm just glad I get good hair some days, whether it's day two or day one. ;)
