For me it just depends on how much I sweat. If I didn't sweat too much, I will spray my hair with water and then scrunch in a light hold product that has a watery consistency. This gives me refreshed curls. I too get dents from pulling my hair back but a light spraying if water and a little gel or foam does the trick.
