Default What's the greatest number of times you've "done" your hair in one day?

For me, it's 3 times. Once (last summer)I did it, didn't like it, did it again and liked it. But then I got a new product in the mail in the afternoon and had to try it right away! Anyone else?

Well, back in the day I could have done my hair three times easily! Now I think the most has been twice and that aS only because I had gotten new stuff in the mail. My hair has been looking pretty good so I leave it.

Ha! I was just looking at my bottle of KCKT earlier today, thinking, "How in the hell did I go through so much of that stuff in such a short time!?"

Then I realized it was from doing my hair multiple times a day, in order to figure out how to ues the stuff! I only got it week before last and it's 3/4 gone already.

Then I was trying to remember how many times I've done my hair in one day, as of late. The answer I came up with was 3, but it was in a 24-hour period, not just one normal day.

The good news is I think I've finally figured KCKT/KCCC out. And now I can go back to doing my hair once a week [washing] and once a day [refreshing]. Aaaaaahh.

I would guess about 3 times. In the last few weeks I've done it twice a couple times b/c I get all frizzy. With all these curlies getting 2nd day hair, I KNOW it's possible for me to get all day hair. LOL. And the search continues.....

I'd say three. It was a rare occasion. I've had to "do" my hair (start to finish) twice several times, though not lately, thank goodness.

Oh wow. Recently I've been doing my hair multiple times a day trying to get the right method with KCCC. I'd say the tops would have been 3 times..but there's times I have to do mess-up rewets. I put in the product, start diffusing and notice stuff isn't going to turn out good. Or maybe I get mostly through the drying stage and mess with it too much or diffuse it on a wrong setting and have to re-wet it before it's half dried or rinse off some product. Usually once I do a mess-up rewet I start getting panicky or frustrated which leads to MORE mess-up rewettings. It's an endless cycle. I have a hard time completely staying away from my hair while it dries or touching it while diffusing because it takes soo long too dry and even longer with KCCC. Sometimes I am a little OCD about doing my hair. I think I need to quit rewetting and rediffusing...yet I continue. I wonder if they have any 12 step programs for this kind of thing?

Second day hair? hahaha what's that??? That's never going to happen here.

Twice is the most I've ever done in one day, I think, and that was because my hair came out bad the first time and I kept adding stuff - and adding stuff - and adding stuff - trying to fixi it until it was totally disgusting!

I couldn't do it more than twice in one day even if I wanted to because of the ridiculous amount of time it takes to fully dry. I just might have to consider getting one of the hard hat thingies.

Twice is my max. Sometimes experiments don't go right and I need a redo.

Today for example I had remanants of shea butter from an experiment 3 days ago. My hair was tangly and gross so I had to clarify once I got home from work.

I only ever do it once - if it's a mess I just tie it back.

I think I may, in the past, have redone it if I've been going out at night, but I can't actually remember doing so.

I'm surprised no one else has mentioned haircut day re-do's! Mine gets done three times on those days - once to make it look good for the hairdressers, so they can see how it's supposed to look, then they style it into some monstrosity there, then I race home as quickly as possible and re-wet/condition/sometimes re-wash if they've put silicones in. So my hair takes a real beating on haircut day! Other than that, new products sometimes I will re-do, or if I have a special occasion/going out at night might require it. Phew it's exhausting! Then again I was getting ready for a night out with some straight haired friends and they spent an age straightening their hair while I was good to go!

I think may have done it twice - once - because of a new product purchase. But really my hair has to be really really really bad to make me break out of my 7 day cycle. Sooooooo lazy.

I go from adding stuff when it's wet to adding stuff after it's dry (and already looks horrid) and that is really BAD news on my hair. I know it and there are times I still do it. So yes, twice for me too.

Oh yes! Haircut day. Guarantees at least 2 style sessions. My hair FREAKS OUT after being cut so I usually style twice a day for 2 days to calm it down. If I don't, I end up with really bad hair for about 5 days.
