Help for 2nd day hair!!!!!!!!

Catsmd71Catsmd71 Posts: 93Registered Users Curl Neophyte
Help, my hair is always beautiful, bouncy and soft on day 1 of shampoo and conditioning. Then on day 2 it's hard. I spray on shine softener and it becomes hard and greasy. Any suggestions for keeping nice curls on day 2?

    I don't use shampoo, but this suggestion may still help you.

    I have a spray bottle filled with water and a few drops of lavender essential oil (sometimes I'll also add a couple of drops of rosemary oil). I'll spritz this on my hair to refresh it on days that I don't wash it.

    I spritz my hair wih a mix of water and conditioner, I usually get pretty good 2nd day hair doing this, it seems to refresh the original products.

    Also while on holiday I tried sleeping with my hair in a pineapple (cos it was so hot) and this gave me pretty good 2nd day hair too.

    Thanks a lot. I always just spray the next day but never add anything to the water.

    If you are not against hairspray, I will spray a little hairspray in before bed and then wear a satin sleeping cap. I can get decent 2nd and 3rd day hair doing this.

    I've had good luck spraying with water&conditioner mix, and adding a bit of Angell or recoil.

    Hi,

    I tried water/conditioner mix and it definitely showed improvement. Thanks all for the help. :lol:
