How to Perfect Second-Day Hair
A daily shampoo may not be practical (or necessary) for you. With these pro tricks for every hair texture, your style will look even better than the first time around.
Sometimes it just takes finding the right routine to revive second-day hair. These expert tips and product recommendations are tailored to every hair type, so you can skip the everyday wash, add volume, and banish oiliness without compromising style.
How to Restyle Wavy or Curly Hair
Waves and curls are prone to bedtime frizz because of their dry nature and, unless you sleep on silk, friction from the pillowcase. On top of that, curls can get crushed and lose their shape as you sleep. For morning restyling, Mia Emilio, a senior stylist at Devachan salon in New York City, recommends lightly squeezing your hair upward with wet hands to help revive products you applied the day before. Then add a dime-size amount of antifrizz styling cream like, Dove Care Between Washes Re-Styling Milk, $5.
How to Restyle Fine Hair
"A combo of your scalp's natural oil and lingering hair products leaves fine hair flat or limp," says Nunzio Saviano, owner of a New York City salon. To bring back body, apply a dry shampoo to your roots and give it a minute to soak in and absorb oils. Then brush out any powder or residue to avoid hair looking dull or even dirty, Saviano says. We recommend, John Frieda Day 2 Revival Dry Shampoo, $9.
How to Restyle Kinky or Coily Hair
Prep before bed can make all the difference int he morning. Emilio recommends covering hair in a silk or satin scarf or bonnet to prevent coils from getting frizzy or fuzzy overnight. In the morning restore moisture. First, dampen your hair. Then mix a drop or two of a lightweight oil blend into a curl cream. Scrunch in the mix with your hands to reshape the curls. And do not, at all costs, use a curling iron for touch-ups. For a curl cream we recommend Garnier Fructis Style Curl Treat Curl Butter, $7.
