Default 2nd Day Blues

When I wake up my hair is wild! Especially the back. It's snarly and frizzy. I haven't been able to find a method to get the knots and snarls out while calming the frizzies. I end up brushing it and I have a puffy pyramid.....yuck. My hair only looks good the day I wash it.
Does anyone who has similar hair qualities as mine find a way to do 2nd+ day styling? I would appreciate your feedback.

2a/2b combo, Med.texture, thick, normal porosity and elasticity. Dry, color treated.
I'm still sulfate/cone free.

You need to prevent the snarly frizz while you sleep since there is no way of getting the knots out really, until you wash and re-detangle in the shower...

If you feel okay doing this everyday and your hair doesn't mind, go for it! Lots of people on this board wash their hair everyday.

However if you are prone to OC and prefer not to wash everyday, I would suggest pineappling, a satin pillow case or braids
Mixture of 2c/3a curls, fine to med texture


Wishing my hair would be more like this ------>
and less like this --------->

I second pineappling at night. I also lightly smooth and scrunch in SM volumizing leave in at night about 30 min before I pineapple. It usually helps my hair from drying out and frizzing up.

Condish: Redken Body Full

Add NPF to my my hair after I wash and LOVE gelatin protein treatment!

My hair loves protein, plopping, and diffusing! Trying to find a way to style and air dry.

I've been CG almost a year and am just now getting to the point of regular multi-day hair. I use a regular pillowcase. Before I get ready for bed, I smooth on a light hold gel (CJ PP, UFD CM, KMF UM, SS CEJ, etc), and let it form a slight gel cast before I put it up in a pineapple. In the morning, I smooth on a little more of the same gel, fluff the roots, shake my head a couple times, and go!
2C/ Coarse/ Normal porosity/ SW Florida/ Transitioning to gray
Cleanse: CJ Daily Fix, JC Cleansing Cream, TJ Tea Tree Condish
Condish: JC Too Shea, CJ Curl Rehab (both as RO & LI)

I pineapple at night too. Even when my hair was shorter, I pineappled as much as I could get into the ponytail holder. The next day, I typically take down the pineapple and smooth some leave in conditioner over the canopy. 90% of the time that's enough. The other 10% of the time, I end up spritzing a mix of water and leave in conditioner on my hair and diffusing. I can usually get to day 3 hair that way. Then day 4 I either wash or wear it up.

My hair looks better on day two than day one; I usually sleep in a pineapple and a long silk sleep cap. Today I have day three hair, which is meh, but it's because I slept in a pineapple without the silk sleep cap (late night, too tired) with satin pillowcase

And even day four hair is better than it was pre-CG on day one :-)

It took 11 months CG to get multi-day hair. The color looks washed out due to the lighting; it's day three hair

I pineapple my hair before bed. The next morning after I take it down I wet my hands and gently smooth over the top. It is usually still a bit frizzy (so is my day one hair, fairly new to cg and still a work in progress ) but it is wavier than on day one.

P.S. It is kind of small, but my new avatar pic is my best hair day yet! This is second day hair styled as mentioned above.
Fine/Med texture, normal porosity and elasticity (I think)
2a(maybe 2b on a good day?)

Conditioner: Tresemme Smooth & Silky
Leave-In: Kinky Curly Knot Today
Gel: Herbal Essence Set Me Up
Mousse: Herbal Essence Totally Twisted
