Since I cut my hair, I've learned that second day hair definitely gives the best balance of texture and shape. However, depending on the product I'm using, it can look slightly oily by day two.
This is when Skinny Skinny comes in. I put a few shakes into my palm, clap and comb my fingers through my hair and voila- good as clean (and smelling fresh).
Life saver for short hair like mine!
