so for my hair there is no second day. while i sleep my hair flattens the curls and frizzes out all at the same time. So i have to get my hair wet every morning, also I like to take baths so I have started to my washcloth method. basically I use the wash cloth to scrunch my hair while wetting it at the same time. it works really well to reactivate and reform my curls. I can do this for a few days before needing to co wash. even then I use the washcloth to rinse/scrunch my conditioner out it really allows you to control the amount of water used and the amount of conditioner left in while keeping your curls intact.
