What is "2nd day hair" to you?

Like Tree14Likes

i'd been seeing these things called loc socs on youtube lately. and the product junkie/multi-day hair quester in me bought some. they are pricey but i think worth it. my hair is protected when i sleep and not stretched out. still haven't figured out how to keep my hair moisturized though. just like jas76, looks okay but feels like hay.

i purchased from Shades of Color “Loc Soc”.
3c-4b. probably.
medium/coarse texture.
(extremely)high density.
low porosity, normal elasticity.
co-wash: suave naturals daily clarifying condish with drops of rosemary oil.
detangling conditioner: tresemme naturals.
deep conditioner: curly kinks curlycue renew, b.a.s.k. cacao bark, honey/evoo.
Thanks so much for that link I'm definitely going to purchase a Loc Soc so I can sleep with my hair completely out of the way Loved some of those creative day-time styles too (cute and practical) so I look forward to trying those out on my curls.

I did laugh at the one vid where the lady layers three of the Socs on her head (for the "Crown style") ... Was imagining how big my headache would be after all that excess fabric hugged all my hair piled up on my head. Still, she looked gorgeous in that style and could probably get away with wearing anything on her head lol

Good luck with your quest to keep the moisture in your hair. It does look very pretty.
3b/c?

Someone mentioned on another thread that the defining factor in getting second day hair may be elasticity. If your hair doesn't bounce back well when stretched the curls can't reform themselves after stretching. I got normal elasticity on my hair analysis, but whenever I pull my hair back in a ponytail, I can't wear it down after that. The front part that's pulled back will more or less stay straight. I've always been envious of people whose hair could bounce back.

Before doing cg and when my hair was longer, I would wash it at night and get up and go the next day. Since it was long the top (part that got slept on) was a lot straighter. Plus before I got in the working world I didn't care as much about how it looked. Now that its much curlier whether from being shorter or cg, I am never truly happy with how it looks in the morning even if I'm willing to live with it.

fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

Co-wash: VO5 Volumizing
Poo: Giovanni 50:50
RO:TN, Nexxus Youth Renewal, Alba Coconut
LI: KCKT
PT: gelatin PT, ION EC
Stylers: Giovanni mousse, TIGI Curls Rock amplifier (a-cone), Curls Rock Strong Hold Mousse
Gels: SCC spray gel

I just can't get second day hair. I cut two knots out of my hair, and heard plenty snapping while gently brushing with my imitation TT and detangling spray, today. Despite tying my hair back last night, it was still very knotty, and looked so frizzy and messy. Plus the curls were really deformed. I just can't get second day hair :'(

This is 1st day hair, and this is how messy my hair gets. And the tangles hiding in there are horrendous.



Which I don't mind, but you can see how frizzy it gets, and the knots are ridiculous.

I have fine hair, so perhaps that's a contributer.






BSL stretched (longest it's ever been and growing rapidly!), past shoulder curly. Hair goal is hip length.

3a-b/f-m/ii. Soft and silky texture and prone to tangles. Can't get second day hair, even if I kissed the feet of fairy's

2nd day hair to me is something I can get up & go with. Either pulled or pinned back if I have to. If I have to re-wet & re-style, it's not 2nd day hair.

I've never gotten 2nd day hair without bunning it. Sometimes I cant even do that. My hair is far too dry and tangly once I wake up. Plus it's flat, frizzy, & wonky crooked curls if its still curly at all.

I have been having the same "messy" hair issues on Day 2 but I have to say, I tried cones and like peeps have been saying - it does make a difference. I used CJ Coffee Coco Curl Creme, which has the washable cones. And I kept my clumps into Day 2 and 3. If I use the "really" all natural products, my clumps break up pretty easily.

I only had a sample size of the CJ Creme so I am back to messy Day 2 hair. I am debating whether I buy more of that or try a drug store cone item.

Have you tried smoothing the curls with a light oil? Rub oil on your palms/fingers and smoothe the canopy with your palms, and twist the clumps/curls back into place. (You can even try that 2nd step with some watery condish).

Your curls are lovely!! I don't think it looks as bad as you think!

And thank you so much! I don't mind it, but trust me, the 2nd day hair is another story. This picture is end of day 1st day hair!
