Default What do you add to your spray bottle?

I want to experiment with making my own hair refresher spritz. So to those of you who make your own...what do you add? I'm thinking possibly some curl cream, a little gel...maybe a little LI?

My hair is low-po, fine, but with a lot of strands. In the past, I've had trouble with spritzing making my hair frizzy, especially if I'm trying to get second day hair. I'm hoping that adding the right things will help remedy the frizz. I'd really like to use it as a mid-day refresher, and possibly even second day hair.

Thank you ladies!

I use about half a spray bottle of lavender water and add a little leave in and oil. Seems to work pretty good. Going to try adding a little FSG to see if it helps the frizz too. I bought a bottle of SM hold and shine spray and I really like that!

I have good results when I mix 1/4 aloe vera gel to 3/4 water. Sometimes I'll add a few drops of ACV. I easily get 2nd, 3rd and sometimes 4th day hair with this.

I love to mix 3/4 of my spray bottle with water, 18 pumps of Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Conditioner with a tablespoon (or two) of extra virgin olive oil

One has just water, the other has thinned out conditioner.

Leave-in and lavender oil. I can't really spritz my hair at all, because it explodes, but I use it to SOTC and it works really well for that.

Conditioner and sometimes Vegetable Glycerin. I only spirtz at night before I cover with a scarf. If I do it during the day it can cause frizz.

Hmm, I've been wanting to experiment with AVG so maybe I will try that. I'm curious about the rise water too...I'm not really sure what it does.
