Morning hair - before & afters
 
Ladies and gents, what does your hair look like in the morning before and after you refresh?

Post pictures, and tell us what your overnight routine is, what is working, and/or what is not, and your refresher technique.

It's one thing to tell someone your routine, but it's another to actually see what happens when you do it.

I'll post my pictures tomorrow.

I can't get second day hair to save my life so it'll be interesting to see if anyone has hair that looks like mine in a morning (God forbid!) and if so, what they do to get it looking decent. There may yet be hope for me.

Starmie, Me either! I will allow myself to have 2nd day hair now and then if I'm staying home but never to work. I look like the Doc from back to the future when I wake up. I say I have hair elves that visit me at night. Sit on my pillow and pull on my hair.

I'm on a first day and this winter I'm not getting the kind of wave I did in summer but I'll play tomorrow.

First with morning hair, then conditioner and gel on wet hair, then dried hair. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/16/sy5ugy4u.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/16/mebaguna.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/16/aby8u4ys.jpg

I'm on 3rd day hair right now.

It will only let me upload 5 pictures at a time, so doing this in 2 posts.


These are when I first woke up (obviously!)

After my hair had almost dried.

I still can't find a good nighttime routine. I don't pinepple, because my hair is too short. The satin pillowcase is better than the cotton, but still not good.

I cup my hands under the faucet and get water to smooth onto my hair in sections, and squeeze to make sure all the layers get wet. I do this just so my hair is wet, not soaking wet.

Then I apply KCCC to the canopy, underneath layer, then scrunch.

I diffused this morning to about 80% dry, because I was in a hurry to get pictures. Some days I diffuse, some days I don't.

After it was mostly dry, I scrunch the crunch out, tip my head upside down and fluff and scrunch, then give it a good shake, and flip it up fast and position.

I pineapple every night. It gives me decent volume. In the morning I slowly take the pony tail off & then shake my hair from scalp. I try my best not to touch the top so I don't get crown frizz. I then use a little CO to seperate my curls to make my hair have the appearance of more thickness. Since this is second day hair I don't add gel or water that is usually for 3rd day hair for me.

P.S don't mind the bottom curl left behind on my pineapple pic haha.

My hair can't be pineappled yet, so I just spread it around my head when I lie on the pillow. I never toss so it "mostly" stays intact.

Oh god, mine is a MESS every morning ... I still don't have a good 2nd day routine besides just bunning it. We'll see tomorrow ...

sixelamy 02-15-2014 05:33 PM

I actually didn't realize just how a little embarrassing it was, until I saw it up here. lol

Bottom part of picture is part of day one hair, pre-SOTC. The first four blocks are morning hair, with the fourth block as my "after" hair. Since I was heading out to a dance class, I didn't fuss with it as much as I did when I returned from the dance class; the last two blocks was my hair in the afternoon.

See, it's just as I feared - no-one (yet!) has hair that looks remotely like the mess that is my morning hair.
