Something I found out for myself: My hair is always so thirsty, the only way I can achieve 2nd day hair is to mist it down with water so it's very damp, then scrunch in more condish. Then I scrunch out extra water/condish and scrunch in a little FSG or gel.
Best tips I have picked up here: Spritz and Condish. Plopping!!!!! and last but not least.. FSG! Amazing stuff.
Not to mention, moisture moisture moisture! I actually had no idea how dry and thirsty my hair was until I found NC.com.
