Ouidad Q&A: Achieving Second-Day Hair

The Queen of Curls answers your every curl question

Dear Ouidad: How does one maintain her look for the next day without having to wash her hair again? Is it better to wash the hair every day?

A: When you sleep, put the hair in loose ponytail on the top of the head to preserve curls as best as possible for the morning. In the morning, use Botanical Boost to refresh your curls. After your hair is dry, you can use a drop of Shine Glaze and your hair will look beautiful for the day. In terms of washing your hair, generally it isn't necessary to shampoo daily. Your curl pattern should dictate how often you should shampoo.

  • Loose waves - 2-3 times per week

  • Curly/Tight - 1-2 times per week

  • Kinky - 1 time per week

this is soo helpful, u have no idea, i have a try scalp, and i tend to wash my hair 1-2 times a week..... thanks alot
What if I have short hair, and don't have enough hair to put it into a ponytail?
every time i try to leave my hair in a pony tail the next morning you can see the mark that the scrunchy left help?!?!
I used to shampoo once a week but trying to go curly has meant I can only go two days before my frizz becomes godzilla. I use the loose ponytail but have to almost soak my hair every morning just to get the curls to re-form.
I used all 3 of your recommended products, and I even bought brand new grade A shampoo but it still doesnt seem to work on my hair. I did it the same way that you did in the commercial but I dont think that its made for people with my amount of curly hair =( I dont know if im doing something wrong or it just doenst work...
Until recently, I have shampooed my 3b hair 3x's a week and had to wet my hair everyday for my curls to look decent. Now, I put my hair up in a loose ponytail and I can get a good three days wear now! I am thrilled that this simple method has changed my routine dramatically and with exceptional results!
i usually comb my hair and tie a tight ponytail immediately and i avoide going out that day to insure my curls look beautiful and soft when i open them before sleep. but it's not working now.. why??..
Ouidad do you put the hair in the ponytail if it is wet or dry?
my curls are rather short so I can't put them in a pony tail' instead I sleep with my curls loose on a satin covered pillow. highly recommended!!
I use to wash my hair everyday when I i frst started styling my curls...I didn't know of any other way to revive them. After a CG intervention from a friend I learned different techniques and products that worked wonders for my curls. I wash and deep condition my hair at least once a week now(with knowledge taking care of my curls have gotten so much better)... great question from that CG!!!
