    Or you could do a high bun with a scrunchie or clip. Twisting loosely and clipping up could work too.

    On the night I wash/blow dry my hair, I just… go to bed. I could and maybe even should sleep with it up, but I don’t. Even the hair ties that aren’t supposed to leave a crease in your ponytail leave one in mine. My hair still looks fine and has enough volume in the morning even after sleeping on it (I have thick hair to begin with and volume is seldom an issue). I don’t even have to brush it if I don’t feel like it. On the second night, I’ll use a small clip to do a super high half pony kinda deal, again because I don’t want the crease from a hair tie. In the morning, I use dry shampoo/texturizer and style. I don’t think it looks great on day two, but I have yet to find a dry shampoo that does something for my hair.

    My pillowcase is satin.
    I wash my hair 2 or 3 times a week. A lot of hair falls out but i’ve seen the amount decrease depending on the shampoo.
    I went to a hair stylist once that digitally diagnosed my scalp. It looked super greasy and gross. He told me that that was due to the use of sulfates. And asked does your hair fall out a lot? I said yes. And he said that was because of the shampoo. I use an organic no sulfates line and it has decreased ever since.

    I think I threw out all my scrunchies! Similar to Copa I end up with a crease in my hair. Will give the high pony a try. Copa, have you tried Batiste? That’s the only one I’ve used but I do quite like it. YMMV.

    I shed a lot too. I use a sieve thing so the hair doesn’t go down the drain. I don’t think my hair is thinning and am fortunate to have a lot of hair now.

    A scrunchie or an Invisibobble, when I put my hair up like that, don’t leave a crease. I just blow some warm air over my top layers if anything is slightly wonky, and it goes back to normal.

    Batiste is pretty good and I like all the scents, but the one that seems to get my hair the cleanest is Living Proof Dry Shampoo. They say Dove Dry Shampoo is a dupe for that but I haven’t tried it.

    I’ve tried Batiste, and don’t like it. I’m not expecting a dry shampoo to do any miracles for me, but when I use it, my hair still looks greasy and product-y at the roots. I like the Oribe texture spray. Even though it’s not dry shampoo, I’ve realized my best bet with second day hair seems to be as much lift at the roots as I can get. When I have something important going on, like a meeting, I’ll wash/style my hair again rather than doing second day hair.

    I use Dove shampoo and conditioner, which I’m pretty sure has a bunch of bad-for-your-hair ingredients. I wonder if switching would help on the grease front after reading some of these comments.

    Well, if you’re washing every day or almost every day, with a sulfate shampoo, you could be causing your scalp to overcompensate by producing more oil. If you could wean off washing so often, and use a gentle sulfate-free shampoo most of the time (and silicone-free products), I think your scalp would be healthier and less oily.

    Yeah, their shampoos have sulfates and the conditioners have silicone.

    Yes, Dove products have sulfates. The good news is that there are plenty of options now without the bad compounds. I used Davines Minu shampoo and conditioner and those are the best products I’ve ever used ever. the change was incredibly. I only stopped because they are kind of expensive here.

    I buy Dove because it’s cheap at Costco. A quick Google search reveals that Kirkland (Costco’s brand) sells its own sulfate-free, paraben-free, vegan shampoo and conditioner that has been compared to salon brands. Has anyone here tried it? I like that it’s not as pricey as other brands, but also don’t really want to spend on a Costco-sized product if I’m going to end up hating it!

    Do they give away free samples?
    I use a shampoo that is sold in a similar chain as Costco, and they give away samples sometimes, that’s how i got to it.
    Anyways, it’s not recommended to use the same shampoo for a long time, i don’t remember how long is recommended but if the bottle is too big it may last for 6-8 months.
