Learning to properly refresh your curls between washes is a game changer.
When I started this process, I didn’t know how to properly refresh my curls. This led me to constantly wash my hair, which can become very time consuming and lead to dry curls.
The best way to refresh your curls is to use a spray curl refresher. These products are designed to help extend your wash and go. They’re typically less concentrated and have great slip. The key is to choose a refresher spray that’s moisturizing and can hydrate your curls.
Two of my favorite refresher sprays are from Shea Moisture and from Alikay Naturals. These two products are made with natural ingredients that will keep your curls looking beautiful and extend your wash and go.
The way to apply the spray is to isolate the frizzy curls, spray the product into your hair and then massage the curls and scrunch. You can then air dry or diffuse and you’re done.
If you don’t already own a curl refresher spray, don’t worry; you can add water and your favorite leave-in conditioner to a spray bottle and use that mixture. Following this routine will help you extend your wash and go and have fresh curls for up to a full week.
