I want to see your 2nd day hair

I've gotten ok 2nd day hair a couple of times, but it's definitely got some frizz to it. I've never had 2nd day hair without frizz. I want to see what others' 2nd day hair looks like so I have something to compare to because I have no idea if what I get is the best I can hope for. Plus I'm just curious.
I suspect I toss and turn too much to get really good 2nd day hair, even with a satin pillowcase & pineappling.
I don't have any photos of my own yet since I don't get decent 2nd day hair very often. I'll take it down in a bit and if it's halfway decent I'll edit & add a photo.
No cones since 08/25/09. Occasional low poo.
Fine, normal to low porosity (still not sure which), ii, 3a/3b curls
Playing with products: HEBE Mousse, BRHG, AOMM, HESMU. Nothing blows my mind just yet.

I feel the same way, I just can't get it to not have a little frizz. I am lazy and do second hair all the time and just pin it back.
Rhode Island - New England curly
2c-3a/F/i (Fia), shoulder length, need it cut!
Mod-CG since 10/09 - over 1 year!!

Diffuser dependent!
i have second day hair all the time simply because i wash and dry at night (so i really have no other option, lol). i recommend doubling up on the gel. in my case, sleeping on it tends to scrunch most of the crunch out by morning. and definitely make sure it's as dry as possible before going to bed. in my experience, any wetness causes odd bends and cowlicks by the time morning rolls around.

sorry, i have no pics as of yet. i will try and get some in my fotki soon.
I don't think it's possible to have 2nd day and not have some frizz. I would much rather live with a little frizz on 2nd and 3rd day because it saves me a ton of time. I don't normally like to add much (if any) product on 2nd day or I get frizz that I'm not willing to live with.

I've gotten decent results with a light spritz, a glaze of DMMG with a nickel blob of BRHG and a plop holds up well for me. I have not been doing well with a pineapple for the longest time. It makes my hair hurt regardless of how loose it is and if it does stay on all night by some miracle, I get too much volume that I can't tame. So now, it's a satin pillowcase but I would really love to try the satinsak RCC uses

Thanks for the info I was probably expecting/hoping for too much for 2nd day...I got some flexi-8 clips and my hair looks really cute half up which I haven't worn in a long time. That worked well for me yesterday. I am not a morning person and it was so nice not to have to fuss with my hair at 6 am.
A satinsak sounds interesting. I toss and turn a lot and I'd be surprised if it stays on but it couldn't hurt to try one.

Southern Moss, your "technically" 3rd day hair looks great! It looks better than mine, for sure. I don't see any frizz at all!

I'm the same way...I wash at night, so my 1st day hair is really 2nd day hair, too.

Third day hair. I love a satin sleep hat along with lots of KCCC on day one.

Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.

No, I don't re-wet since that sort of defeats the purpose.

I may get my hands damp and scrunch though to reactivate the KCCC a bit. I also use the KC Gloss Pomade.

Honestly, the two biggest helps are using enough KCCC on day 1 to get me through a couple of days and the satin sleep hat. Not sexy, but effective. My hair is a bit long at this point for the pillowcase alone, and I'm and active sleeper.

It just looks smooshed and weird in the morning. Do you have a technique of getting it all in there so it doesn't get smooshed?

Here's what it looks like.

Del, SM and RCC...WOW!! I have yet to accomplish 2nd day hair that looks great like all of yours. I'm ok with it though because I'm having so much fun playing with different products right now! I can accomplish half a$$ed 2nd day if I pineapple, but I wouldn't want to venture far from home - lol. Perhaps, once I get a better grip on my need to play...
