Mysterious 2nd day hair...

Jas76Jas76 Posts: 2,283Registered Users
So I woke up to 2nd day hair today. I thought I might yesterday bc my hair turned out nice after my shower.

But I haven't a clue why either happened?! Lol!

I had coconut oil and condish on my ends overnight, but that's not anything new for me, really.

I clarified, mixing half low-poo with half baby 'poo (low sls) - again nothing all that new (though I hadn't clarified in a while), but what WAS new is that I mixed oil with the poo as well.

Then I put a but of protein heavy condish mixed with a little acv in, left that for maybe 2 mins, then combed through.

I wrung the excess out, then put some RO in. After a couple more minutes I combed that through, finger combed to lift the roots, scrunched adding lots of water, then scrunched again so it was barely dripping.

Then I styled as usual - adding some more LI, sealing with MO, LALS gel over, MF towel scrunch, a little extra gel on the ends and then plopped.

Not my every day routine exactly, but definitely nothing I haven't done before - aside from not having clarified in a while and for adding the oil to the poo.

So what do you think did it??? Was it just the right combo of things? Was it the oil in the poo? Just dumb luck??

I love that my hair behaved, but hate that I don't know why!! Lol!!

    I have this experience with 2nd day hair too. Some days it's awesome, some days it's just mediocre. It's so weird lol. I do the exact same things. I think it has to do with the weather and how my hair turns out on the first day.
