2nd day hair my washcloth method

Like Tree6Likes

This sounds like a brilliant idea! Can't wait to try it. We should probably christian is the "sungirl 86 method" for wavy hair if a lot of us find success with it. (Since pixiecurl and icequeen have had hair care methods named after them)!
2c, fine, extremely dense, color-treated, high porosity.

CG since 10/12
Wow, that is briliant. I'm going to have to try this! Thanks!

I'm going to try this. I so want to find a method for 2nd day hair that works. Thanks very much for posting - sooner or later someone will post a 2nd day method that works for me - hope this is it!!!
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
it works almost like the super soaker method for second day hair. because you are rewetting, the clumps come out great!
2b/c wavy modified CG since July 2012
medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
hair likes protein, doesn't like oils, easily OC'd

low poo: JCHCC, CJGCS
RO/co-wash/LI: YTCarrots, DB Pumpkin Seed
stylers: a bunch of stylers that are all pretty much the same (KCCC, UFDCM, CRCM, CKCJ) or ArcAngel if I need more hold
DT/PT: CJRM, CNPF
I was really impressed with how well this turned out. I had tried in the past to do the same thing but with a t shirt and it was pretty meh. I was worried about the frizz factor from using a terry cloth washcloth, but it turned out great! I may have to use this over the bathtub next time because my hair can soak up A LOT of water lol. Best second day technique I've tried yet. Thanks for sharing
2b//high porosity//fine texture//medium density//low elasticity//loves protein
Lo-poo: SMMR, SMC&S
Clarifying: VO5 shampoos
Co-wash: VO5 conditioners
RO: VO5 conditioners
Styling: AIF, FSG, gelatin gel
PT: IAGirl's gelatin treatment
This method worked really well for me too! I used a bandanna, then plopped about 15 minutes after scrunching, and my hair was frizz free and shiny. Didn't even need to apply extra product. Thanks for the tip!

Will def be trying this. I usually go straight or roller-set during the cold months because going out w/a wet head is just too uncomfortable. And my hair's condition isn't the best right now with straightening. Cannot wait to try!

I'm sure the difference in these two methods simply comes down to my hair porosity. And that is why I am posting this - I am not meaning to correct or argue. I just want those with low-po to know what, IMO, the difference is.

(I also did not get good results from the ss method; though, I am not sure why.)
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
That's a good point. BUT timing and convenience aside I actually like using the washcloth method to achieve amazing clumps when I want my hair to look extra special. I essentially super soak my dry hair then scrunch in some KCCC, diffuse, and you wouldn't believe the clumps. It looks even better if I split and loosen the clumps up when dry. Crazy volume and bounce. Just did this for a wedding last night.

I tried this today, and it worked pretty well! I used a normal washcloth and did get a smidge frizzy--I was actually surprised at how wet my hair got (I probably over did it). I will definitely try again with one of my flour sack towels, or a bandana as Barcemadis did.

I'm definitily going to try this today! I do not have good luck w/ 2nd day hair w/o totally soaking it & re-styling. Thanks!!!

I'm visiting my parents' house in the country and we've always had problems with the water supply. We can't use much--at ALL.

I was too tired to wear my sleep bonnet last night and was just about to resign myself to a bun when I remembered this.

I love this place!!!

P.S. I'm 3b.....

This didn't work for me. Major frizz. I'm going to try it again, though.

This worked very well for me! Much less frizz on my second day hair than with spritz bottle I used a cotton tshirt to soak my curls with, then another to scrunch with, then SOTC when dry. Fab! thanks for the cool tip!
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
I tried this today and for whatever reason, my hair actually looks BETTER today than my first day hair!
Why could that be? I have high porosity and medium everything else. So, is it the lower amount of water getting into the hair? The second layer if product (this is the first time I've done more product on day two)?

Very timely reviving of this post! Now that it's getting colder outside I'm thinking of switching up my wash routine and showering at night instead of in the morning. My hair is LP so it takes forever to dry and it's getting too cold to leave the house with damp hair. Has anyone tried this method with a first round application of products instead of a refresher? I can't sleep in a plop or pineapple so maybe this is a solution?

Hi! I know this isn't a new post but I was wondering how the styling part goes. How much and what type of product would you scrunch in? I tried mousse today and not too happy with the results. My waves are looser than normal and the clumps are smaller.
If I do this tomorrow, should I scrunch in more KCCC, gel, or mousse (since that is what is already in my hair)?

I need a hair twin to bug for advice

Thank you!

I have a lot of hair and I use 2 products with this method, curl enhancer and gel, usually the same as I've used the day before. Works like a charm.

Tried this today with a microfiber washcloth...I am in love! Thank you! It did not give me great clumps but it was better than any other 2nd day hair I've ever had. More curly looking. Even got a compliment on my hair!
