I try to go 2, maybe 3 days if possible without wetting or restyling my hair. There are a couple products that work ok for me on dry hair if I just need to touch up here and there (Re:coil, ORS Lock n Twist, and Set It Free). But if my hair needs a major rehaul, I have to wet it.

And you're able to wear your hair down everyday without frizz? Please, girl, tell me your secret. How do you sleep on it?

I got second day hair once. With KCCC (I'm spelling it correctly now ). I haven't been able to replicate that again. So, if I'm not in the mood to wet and style, I have to pull it up.

I think when my hair is a wee bit longer, I will be able to do second-day hair, but third day is impossible to imagine. It's a very different look, though. Option #1 is to wet my hands and run them over my hair and add some more gel. This isn't extremely cute, but it will do.

Option #2 is to go for an allover bushier look. Vigorously rubbing a little oil on dry hair will do this. No more defined curls. This can be cute, in a poofy way, but it's cuter when my hair is longer.

I wet my hair every day when it's warm. When it was cold, I got by by spritzing it in the morning and wearing a puff or wetting it the night before.

I don't co-wash regularly although I do it pretty frequently. Some days, I'm in the mood to do it, other days I just want it to be wet so I can get out the shower and go. Now that's starting to be warm enough that I can wash my hair in the mornings, I'm gonna start wet styling it again. When it starts getting hot, I'm DEFINITELY conditioner washing it daily. Second day hair has been nonexistant for me, as far as wearing it down. I can wear it down one day and then pull it into a puff the next morning but even with a silk scarf on at night, my hair mats. It needs water everyday.

The lady that cuts my hair told me that it's VERY HARD for curly hair to be overconditioned because it needs SO much moisture. I've been fine thus far.
