Every curly girl knows the risk of leaving second hair day down. It’s frizzy, flattened, and basically just a curly mess. Sometimes you set your alarm clock a little later than usual just so you don’t have to get up as early to wash your hair. 7:30 comes, you get up, go to the bathroom, and look in the mirror. OH NO!!! Your hair did not plan out the way you wanted. You only have 30 minutes to get ready! No time for washing your hair, so up in the messy bun it goes!
Don’t you wish you could avoid this stressful morning routine? Guess what!? I finally figured out on Tuesday the perfect way to restore your second day hair and sleep in as long as you want!
I woke up Tuesday morning, I didn’t feel like putting my hair up in a bun and I didn’t want to waste more water and wash my hair. I wanted to smooth through my “getting ready process” in under 30 min so I could get on with the stuff I needed to do that day. I went to my friend, Pinterest, and looked up “second day hair curly” in the search bar. Nothing truly satisfied my need, but I saw on multiple websites to use a squirt bottle. So I decided to try it, but I made my own “Second Hair Day Fix Recipe” that was PERFECT! I am never going back! Hello sleeping in!
Step 1: Fill a squirt bottle with water and a couple of pumps of conditioner.
- I used Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Conditioner with a little bit of their Coconut & Hibiscus Moisture Mist.
Step 2: Spray hair until lightly damp (most websites said to completely dampen it. I did not like the idea of drying my hair for half an hour again).
- Make sure to put a towel underneath you, the mist gets on the ground.
Step 3: Scrunch your hair gently, moving in an upward motion to your roots with your favorite styling product (preferably a gel or cream).
- I used Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Smoothie. Use small amounts!
- I also sprayed more of the Shea Moisture’s Moisture Mist.
Step 4: Flip your head upside down and quickly defuse your hair with a blow dryer to add volume.
Step 5: Look at yourself in the mirror and Voila! Enjoy your freshened curls and save time next time you don’t feel like washing your hair!
