I think it depends. With second-day hair, my waves aren't as defined and polished as they are the first day but it doesn't bother me at all. I also don't mid if my hair isn't perfect. I tend to like my hair when it's a bit messy and tad on the frizzy/fluffy side so I'm a fan of second-day hair that's not perfect.
