Dear FroBunni: How do I get Second Day Hair?

Wednesday, October 22, 2014


I can't get second day hair; I have to redo all my hairstyles, like this braid out, nightly.

"Dear FroBunni, Every time I try a hairstyle like a twist out, it looks good on the first day, but looks horrible on the second day. At night, I spritz my hair with some water, seal with shea butter, and put my hair in a pineapple, but the next morning, it always turns out frizzy and tangled. Is there some way for me to wear my twist out for at least 2-3 days as opposed to having to twist every night?"

To be honest, "second day" hair isn't something that I can get. I have to redo a style every night or else it looks frizzy and messy in the morning. The reason for this is that I have to moisturize and seal every night, and if I don't, my hair won't fare well the next day. Second day hair will require you to forgo the nightly moisture. Wetting your hair makes it shrink, thus ruining a stretched style. Instead, run some oil through your hair and then pineapple.

A couple things to note though, for one, you may need to moisturize your hair daily. If you find that your hair is getting brittle and dry, then you may in fact not be able to go more than 24 hours without moisturizing your hair, which means that second day hair won't be possible for you. Second, your hair may just not hold up well without redoing a style every day. Consider using a gel or a setting lotion, but you still may need to redo the style even with a little extra help.

Have a natural hair, fitness, or beauty question, send me an email at FroBunni[at]gmail.com and I will answer it on the next Dear FroBunni.
