Your hair can look even sexier on the 2nd day. 2nd day hair offers a lot of benefits that you may not have considered yet. But once you know what those benefits are then you’ll know how to use them to your advantage. Let’s talk about the specific reasons your 2nd day hair is actually sexier.
1. It’s Easier to Style
Hair is easier to style on the 2nd day. You’ve already got product in from day 1 which gives your hair a bit of grit. It’s easier to work with. On the flip side, freshly washed hair can be tricky to work with. It can slip out of your hands because it’s so clean. 2nd day hair has the advantage when it comes to ease of styling.
2. It Has a Natural Shine
Hair that isn’t freshly washed has more of a natural shine. It’s true that it can look greasy at your roots and I hate that look too! However, a few sprays of dry shampoo can deal with that problem. This allows you to extend the time you can go between washing your hair. Dry shampoo is also a great styling aid and nice to have on hand. I’ve even used it on freshly washed hair before to give it more hold.
3. It’s Healthier
Not washing your hair everyday is healthy for it. Washing too often can cause it to become dry because it strips the natural oils away before they can offer any benefits. Your hair also gets more damage from daily blow dry sessions. After I started skipping a day in between washing my hair I started noticing that my hair seemed healthier. You’ll probably find the same thing is true for you. And healthy hair is always sexier!
4. Hair Color Has More Staying Power
Another huge advantage to not washing your hair daily is that your color is going to last way longer. Hair color fades a little each time you wash it. Having your hair done is pricey so of course you want to do everything you can to prevent fading. When you stop washing daily, you’ll notice that your color stays fresh and seems revitalized even weeks after having it done. It may even help you be able to stretch the time in between hair appointments 💇.
5. It Holds Curl Longer
2nd day hair holds curl longer than freshly washed hair. You can thank the product from day 1 for that. It’s got a much better texture to work with on day 2. I curled my 2nd day hair yesterday and received several compliments on it throughout the day. If I had curled it when it was freshly washed then it would have fallen flat by lunch.
6. You Can Afford Higher Quality Hair Products
When you aren’t washing your hair every day then you can afford to spend a little more on your hair products. Having a high quality shampoo and conditioner can help you to have healthier hair. It may even be easier to style or look prettier. High end shampoos and conditioners usually are a little better quality but I also have my favorites in the drugstore variety. But let’s be honest, it’s fun to splurge 💵!
7. It’s the Perfect Foundation for an Updo
Do you love the look of a polished updo? There’s just nothing quite like it, is there? If a polished updo has always seemed unattainable to you, the stars may have just aligned in your favor! 2nd day hair is key to a fabulous updo. Try it and see what a difference it makes.
