Smile 2nd day hair

I woke up today with 2nd day hair! In a fog I went to the kitchen to mix up my honey rinse, but when I got the the bathroom and looked in the mirror I realized that my hair looked great!! So, I poured the honey rinse into a spray bottle, spritzed on a little, and voila!! 2nd day hair! This is the first time it's happened since I started CG again.

Just thought I would share my excitement!

Same here--my hair looks crappy the second day, and I always have to re-wet and apply a rinse-out conditioner on days I don't wash.

Out of curiosity, what do you typically do to get 2nd-day hair? And do you have to re-wet/condition entirely? Is 3rd or even 4th day hair possible without re-wetting/conditioning?

That's exactly what I was wondering, because it's just so much EFFORT re-wetting, re-styling and re-drying/waiting for hair to dry.
My only issue is the drying time. i don't have all that time to wait for it to dry in the mornings.
To get 2nd day hair do you have to sleep with hair up/down? Or do you have to do some kind of preparations before bed??

I can get 2nd day hair at least once a shampoo cycle. I shampoo every 4-5 days, I don't do anything special to it at night, just lightly spritz with a leave-in in the morning - I love ICON Cure and Alterna - or I mist with water and smooth in a teeny bit of regular conditioner, scrunch and diffuse for a couple minutes.
I've found that I can get 2nd day hair more often the healthier my hair is.

Ah okay, well i'll just have to try to get my hair reallly healthy it seems. I'm pretty new to CG-ing and already it looks 100000x healthier!
I'm going to boots tomorrow so i'll see what kind of things i can use at night to put my hair up in, I'm thinking some kind of clip.
Scrunchies really don't work for me so the whole pineapple thing kind of failed because my hair is pretty short and has layers as you might be able to see from my avatar.
How does everyone wear their hair at night?

EllaGeorgina, I have fine hair so the scrunchy thing doesn't work for me. I just use a ponytail holder. I haven't really seen results but not only am I new to CG, I discovered I had a cone in my rinse-out, so it's back to square one with me.

Funny thing--I used to get 2nd day hair quite frequently a few years ago when I used non-SLS shampoo and products that I am fairly certain are silicone-free. I would usually just put some spritz in and that would be enough. These days, my hair looks and feels fluffy and flat the next day, even if I had great hair the day before.

before I had my hair relaxed (the relaxer has all grown out now) a few years ago, i also used to get 2nd day hair... I've just found that the aloe gel has dried my hair out a lot :S i thought it was supposed to be moisturising.
i will try a ponytail holder, I dont know what one is but i will look for one :

Hey Ella, a ponytail holder is just one of those standard rubber bands for hair that you can find pretty much anywhere. They vary as far as how much hair they'll hold--the thicker ones tend to be not as elastic, so they're good for thinner/finer hair. I like the thinner ones, though, because they don't hurt your head as much.

I have short hair now too with layers but I still pineapple at night. The layers that fall down I just bobby pin back into place, making sure not pin tight. The next morning, if I have frizz, I use CJ Aloe Fix with a little water and smooth over my canopy and twist curls that have lost their shape. Voila!!
