For me, second day hair is the best although I can get good third and sometimes fourth if I put my hair up in a sleep bonnet each time. If I just pineapple, it doesn't turn out as good as if it was in the bonnet.
As for the second paragraph, I think what's going on is your hair reacts to things, like the oil, differently during the winter/summer months.
I've noticed this with my conditioner. Back in July, I tried it as a LI. My hair was WAY too soft and the curls were very limp. I had to make sure it was completely rinsed out in order to get bouncy curls. Now, however is a different story! I tried leaving it in again and my hair loves it! I don't even rinse it out anymore. After I let it sit for several minutes, I just give my hair a very quick spray with cold water to wet it down and then I style as usual.
I've even noticed that I don't need as much product during the winter months as I do in the summer.
