Default I FINALLY got second day hair!!!

Guys.

Guys, I did it.

Finally.

I just got up and checked out my hair... and HAD to come tell you all.

SECOND. DAY. HAIR>

So for those who don't know my hair woes: fine, grumpy 2c/3a curls that take everything personally. I can't expect them to last into the second day because they just get flat, and lose all curl and shine.

But then, I ordered a SILK sleep cap from ebay. It's not fancy. I probably could've made it, in retrospect!! Thin silk + elastic.

Last night, I piled my hair in there (no pineapple, just plopped it into the cap), and woke up this morning with some outta-control volume and super bouncy curls. A little fuzzy in the back where the elastic rubbed against my hair, but if I pull my hair into a half-up, you'd never know.

So! Proof that the silk sleep cap works! Wahooooo!!! This is gonna save me SO much time.

My next project: to see if curls stand up to being plopped in the sleep cap + squished into a bike helmet for my morning commute. Is it possible I'll have nice hair for work!?
