For me personally the key to second day and occasionally third day hair is do do the pineapple method at night. Wrapping my hair helps a lot and when I get up all I have to do is kind of fluff out my hair and shake my head around to get my curls to separate and unflatten. When I use water alone to refresh it does nothing my dampen my hair without making my curls look any better. If I need to reform some of my curls I use the Shea Moistures curl enhancing smoothie and then kind of twist the curl around my finger for a bit.
