Actually, a plant mister bottle with water in it works well for me, scrunching it in, as I already have residual gel in it(the LA Looks Sports Gel). But if I really need a boost to get another couple of days' decent hair out before I have to wash again, I'll scrunch in a little bit of my DIY shea butter+coconut oil cream combo that I also use as a night cream. Awesome on my mixed 2c-3a curls.
