Hi Allie- I've found that in order to get 2nd day hair, I have to have *perfect* first day hair.

I spray it with a refresher spray before I go to bed to "reactivate" the gel from day 1, and put it in pigtails. The next morning, if it looks do-able, I smooth on a light hold gel (preferences for this are Uncle Funky's Curly Magic, Spiral Solutions Curl jelly, or CJ CIAB, sometimes Loreal Out of Bed). I smooth it over my canopy, then flip upside down and smooth over the bottom. I then take any recognizable clumps and smooth it down the clump to reform it a bit.

However, this is rare. In general, I prefer to wear my hair curly and this only happens if I go through my whole routine. On day 2 my clumps have usually fallen apart and I have frizz. It tends to not even look wavy, which I would be happy with if there wasn't all the frizz.
