Just a note on 2nd day hair - there are several of is who CANNOT refresh with water. If I do, my hair turns stringy, frizzy, and all-around terrible.

Really for 2nd day hair to work for me, it has to be day 1 hair that survives the night. (I don't pineapple or anything, I just use a satin pillow case). Then I can tame frizzies with some oil (jojoba or SM's elixir) on my palms/fingers. I go clump by clump and run my fingers down the clump while twisting it toward the curl direction, then smooth the crown with my palms.

Any curls that got flattened I will talk a TINY dab of condish, wet my fingers, and rewet that one curl. Then I'll coil it up to make a pin curl, clip in place, wait a few minutes and then take the clip out.

Sounds long and involved - it really isn't.

If too many curls around my face are squished I end up putting my hair half up. Or if its bad enough I'll put it up I to a twist or something.

Good luck!!
