2nd day hair. HOW?

i would love to learn how so many of you accomplish gorgeous second day hair...
I have to have my hair in a pony tail at night to keep it off of my face, and for me, ponytail=stretched out nasty curls. Thus, second day hair has never really been a possibility for me. HOWEVER, i'm in school and i've learned to love my diffuser (which adds a good 15-20 min), so i would LOVE to cut down on bathroom time in the mornings.

also, do you shower at all on second day hair days? or put it up in the shower? i've never really understood the concept.

Help, please!

I don't know any big secret as to how to get 2nd day hair. Some days I'm just lucky enough to get it and most days, I don't. Are you putting your hair in a regular ponytail at night or are you putting it up in a pineapple? I know pineappling works for a lot of people. Also, some people here have a lot of luck with overnight plopping.

If I'm having a really good 2nd day, i.e., doesn't need to be wet down at all, I just stick my hair up on top of my head and take a shower. Other days, I'll just water wash it.

Probably didn't help much, huh?

My hair is short enough to shower without it getting wet... and it's too short to ponytail or pineapple at night. I just use a satin pillowcase. In the morning, I either spritz my hair with a waterbottle and re-activate the products from the day before then scrunch, or I comb out my hair - either w/my fingers or really gentling with a super-wide toothed comb and put in a headband.

I usually get 2nd, 3rd, and 4th day hair. I won't go into my entire routine, but to get 2nd day hair, I sleep on a satin pillowcase with my hair spread out on the pillowcase above my head. In other words, I don't actually sleep on my hair. I don't put it in a ponytail or pineapple either.

In the morning, I will put a little bit of gel on rogue curls as needed. If I want to take a shower, I use a shower cap!
For I know that my Redeemer lives,
And He shall stand at last on the earth;
And after my skin is destroyed, this I know,
That in my flesh I shall see God,
Whom I shall see for myself,
And my eyes shall behold, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
(Job 19:25-27)
I get second and third day hair also, But I mist it with Deva's Mr. Right and rescrunch. I do not do anything special at night. on third day I may add a nickle of angel but thats it. the lavender spray gives a fresh clean scent and I am on my way out the door

I have shoulder length 2b/3a hair.
I do 2nd day hair at least twice a week. I think the key to it is I can't have too much styling product in my hair from the previous day.

At night I pineapple. Then in the a.m. I shower with my hair still in a pineapple. I don't worry if it gets a little water spray on it.
When I finish showering I take out the pineapple and shake my head and just kinda scrunch and fluff it and leave it alone until it dries off.

Sometimes I use Mister Right if the curls are droopy.

These are a few of my pineapples. I don't have any pics taken from behind...I though I had taken some, but no...
Pineappling works for me, I pile my hair as high as possible but trying not to pull the nape hairs too much. I getter better next-day hair now that I pineapple than when I just tied it up in a low ponytail.

Heres what I do:
Pineapple at night if I am thinking ahead.

Jorgelina, those are some gorgeous ringlets!!

I'm actually no help. I either get 2nd (3rd, 4th) day hair when I wake or I don't- it's a crap shoot every night. Over producting on 1st day, loose pineapple-ing just like in Jorgelina's pics (I call it the "Sideshow Bob doo" ) & a satin bonnet seem to help. I can't help it along in the AM without frizzing it out. Once it's done, nothing else can touch it or it revolts. On lucky mornings, I use a shower cap over the pineapple.

2nd day hair is not normally something that happens for me, but i got it yesterday.
On Monday I washed with blended beauty silky swirls shampoo, and then mixed a little of the body shop honey and bc tug me knot conditioner combed through, rinsed and then but some more BC tug me knot and finger combed.
I styled with BC jelly cream and soft curls and swirls. and throughout the day I fixed the frizzies with kick for curls and curly Q'S moist curls.

I sleep with my hair in a pineappple, but because it's quite long I have to make sure I don't sleep on the ends so try my best to hang my hair off pillow or just make sure i don't squash it with my big head!

In the morning I kept my hair in the pineapple while I showered, I fixed some frizzies with kick for curls and the Curly Q's stuff. And I was good to go.

I don't know why this worked yesterday and not other times as all I did differently was to condition twice.

Like xheatherbee, I sleep on a satin pillowcase with my hair spread out. The next morning I spritz my hair with water and then smooth a very small amount of gel over my hair. Takes about 15 minutes or so to dry, and there it is, second day hair, and I get third day hair the same way. My hair almost always looks better the second and third days then it does the first day. Good luck!
I have 3A hair. I've discovered Jessicurl shampoo and Too Shea conditioner and I'm thrilled! Long-time LA Looks sport gel user.
I can get 2nd, 3rd and 4th day hair but I have to use a curling iron from the 2nd day onward on the top layer on my hair to get some lift at the roots...my roots go completely flat once I sleep on my hair (no matter how volumey it looked the night before)
Was 3b then I did a soft relaxer and I think I'm now a 3a

I sleep with mine spread out on a satin case too. Now if I don't wake up with 2nd day hair that can't be tamed with a spritz of water, this is what I do. I take a dab of mousse (Joiwhp is my fave) and scrunch it in. I flip upside down and diffuse for just a couple of mins. I have been getting great results doing this for a few months now.
