Second Day Hair

CinnamonCurlCinnamonCurl Posts: 14Registered Users
I am new to the CG method and am still trying to figure out second and third day hair. Some weeks are awesome, others not so much. Current routine is to co-wash with Suave green apple conditioner, then condtion with a Regis conditioner (cone free) that I rinse out. I squeeze out excess water with a tshirt then rake in Cantu shea curl cream and LA Looks Sports Gel and scrunch away. I air dry over night and fluff my roots in the a.m. and go.

I am trying different techniques for second day hair like a homemade mixed spray gel in a squirt bottle, etc.. and have not found the right go to method yet.

What is your no fail second day hair routine?

    On Sunday and Wednesday nights, after shampooing and conditioning, I towel dry my hair lightly and apply Redken Leave-in Butter Treat. Cover with a shower cap, and finish my shower. When I get out, if I don't have time to air dry, I put it in a wet sock bun on the top of my head and cover with a silk cap. In the morning when I unravvel, it's damp, but I just flip my head over and ruffle at the roots. It'll dry throughout the day. At night, I just flip my head over again and lazily stuff it all into a silk cap. I can usually get three days outta this if I spritz all over with water in the morning.

    I HATE GELS. Lol

    I have a hard time getting second day hair because I end up with alot of frizz when I try to rewet it and the curls just never look the same as the first day. The closest I have come to getting great second day hair is when I use Devacurl mist-er right spray. I am just not crazy about the scent of that though but it works pretty well. I have heard some people have luck with just plain lavender spray too!
