For second day hair, use a spray bottle filled with water and spray hair with it. U want hair to be saturated. Wait 1 minute or so after u have sprayed your hair to allow water to sink in. Then start shaking ur hair to loosen the hair. U will see that your curls will magically change from a flattened to bouncy state. You do not need to comb hair. Do not touch. I was hair twice a week on Wed and Sat and use this trick the other days. Hair always looks fresh. I have 4a hair, mid-neck length if stretched. You can add a bit of oil to the water if you want.
