Oohh I used tresemme naturals! Maybe that's it! What was the better conditioner?? The only other one I have now is herbal essences hello hydration so I'll try that but it's very thick so idk...hmm...and I totally get you about the second day hair! I'm a wavy and my hair looks horrible after I sleep so I end up wetting it and scrunching in some leave in and gel which works pretty well!
