Skip the wash, keep the style. While the merriest time of the year can also be the busiest, that doesn’t mean your hair has to suffer! After years and years of trial and error, our team of curl experts trusts this three-step process to make the MOST out of their wash days!
It all starts with, you guessed it, our Curly Hair Custard! Your best 2nd and 3rd day hair can’t happen without a great washday, so that is where we start.
After your normal washday routine, apply curly hair custard section by section to wet hair. Remember, a little goes a long way! If you find that the product flakes when dried or there is residue left on your scalp after application, this is a sign to use less next time around. After applying, let your hair get to almost dry (70-80% dry) before scrunching out the cast.
Whether you wash in the morning or at night, sleep with your hair in a protective covering. Any tossing and turning done during the night can wreak havoc on your hair – not only in terms of your curl pattern, but also can cause major frizz! Our favorite items for sleeping in protective mode are satin pillowcases and bonnets. Sleeping with satin protection helps smooth frizzy hair and minimizes static- waking up with less frizz is always a good way to start the day!
As much as we wish sleeping with our hair protected was the solution for perfect 2nd and 3rd day hair, we have a few more steps ‘til we get there! Upon waking, use a spray bottle filled with water to spray hair and reactivate product from the day before. For extra revitalization, mix up 1 part Curly Hair Custard with 2 parts water (ratio will vary from texture to texture, play with it!).
At this point, it’s safe to say that our Curly Hair Custard is absolutely necessary to achieving your best 2nd and 3rd day hair. Lucky for you, we have plenty of it ;)
