Default How do you refresh?

I have for some time been refreshing for 2nd 3rd and 4th days with a simple water spray and scrunch.
But the last couple of times I have noticed that this just frizzed up my hair.
Is there another way, like mixing some leave in with the water to refresh?

Anyone elses refreshing tips would be much appreciated.

I mix a dime size amount of leave in and a pea size amount of gel with water and smooth it through my hair. My hair is fairly thick, just past shoulder length when dry.

I use Jessicurl Awe Inspiralling for 2nd day hair. Sometimes I add some water in my hand, and I never spray it on, I smooth and scrunch. It's been working great. For other days, I use a little Activate conditioner as a leave-in, and sometimes then I'll rake it in to get out some tangles. On those days, it won't clump as much but has a nice wave with curls at the end. HTH

Spraying gives me frizz so I just wet my hands and scrunch the curl back into the ends. Once that dries, I flip over, ruffle up the roots a little, flip back, scrunch and go. If I still get any frizz (usually doesn't happen w/ my latest product combo) I use a smidge of jojoba and rosemary oil or a tiny bit of LTW+water smoothed over the top or scrunched in. Usually not necessary though.

Thanks for all the help everyone.

I didn't want to add another product to my list, I had a post on some Elemis Moisture Melt, which is basically coconut oil and am thinking of trying this like a serum to calm down my hair and add definition.

Maybe I'll try scrunching some water in, instead of spraying.
I actually woke up this morning with pretty much perfect hair for some unknow reason I decided to spray it which resulted in gross stringy frizz. Maybe I should just be happier with second day hair that isn't as boingy.

I think I may be obsessed.
