Stretching the time period between washes can sometimes be dependent on refreshers that’ll reactivate your curls, moisturize your hair, and combat frizz. There is nothing more enjoyable than having a long lasting twist out or wash and go that can survive more than 3 days. Although your hair needs moisture, too much washing and styling can dry out your mane. If you’re in need of a refresher that will give you that ‘just washed’ look, check out these 10 hair products that’ll bring life back to your curls.

2. Design Essentials Coconut & Monoi Coconut Water Curl Refresher

3. True by Made Beautiful Quench Curl Refresher

4. Alikay Naturals Wake Me Up Daily Curl Refresher
I am a fan of Alikay Naturals Wake Me Up Daily Curl Refresher. It smells delicious, refreshes my curls, and leaves it feeling hydrated. According to Liz, another NaturallyCurly reader she wrote, “Love this curl refresher. I've used it either on my dry hair or after spritzing my hair a bit with water. I like that the spray is more of a mist, vs other refreshers that have a more concentrated stream. For my purposes, I like to spray all over my hair. The spray wakes up my curls and provides a little bit of hold too. I don't know if I would call the scent "mango", it's more like the smell of gummy candies, but either way it isn't unpleasant. I have 2c medium density mid-to-high porosity hair.”
5. Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Refresher Spray
If you can control the frizz, you can potentially prolong your hairstyle. The Agave Nectar in Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Refresher Spray will alleviate frizz and pack in the moisture needed to sustain your hair.

7. Curls Aloe & Blueberry Juice Curl Moisturizer
Second and third day curls never looked better! Curls Aloe & Blueberry Juice Curl Moisturizer is made of pure aloe and blueberries which have the benefits of strengthening hair, adding shine, and reviving curls. NaturallyCurly reader Rosa says, “So first of all, this smells SOO good! It's a very natural, sweet berry smell and I love it. My hair is very mixed. I have so many textures, curl patterns, and porosities. It's mainly 2B to 3B though. Its so hard for me to refresh my hair as it likes to flatten/mat together and become oily overnight. So I can't really get hair past day 3. But I used this in hopes of getting it back to pretty day 1/2 curls and gosh my curls are so bouncy and soft I love it. I wet my hair with some water then sprayed some of the product in my hand then smoothed my hair down with it then scrunched it. After air drying I scrunched it a bit more with my favorite oil and it just looks so good. This is my new favorite product.”
8. All I need Naturally Baobab Creamy Curl Refresher
All I need Naturally Baobab Creamy Curl Refresher is formulated with organic aloe juice, baobab, and argan oil that will keep your hair hydrated, soft, and full of shine. Mindy, a NaturallyCurly reader said, “This stuff smells fantastic. I sprayed a little water in my hair in the morning and then scrunched a little of this in and it was great. It added definition without crunch and smoothed away frizz. And it smells so good. My hair was so curly and looked great.”
9. DevaCurl Mist-er Right Dream Curl Refresher
Refresh your hair and rejuvenate your scalp. Sounds like a win-win! DevaCurl’s Mist-er Right Dream Curl Refresher revitalizes all hair types. A NaturallyCurly reader wrote, “I doubted for a long time whether this was worth anything since i can't just spray liquids on dry hair and expect it to do anything but gave me hard curls. But this does have glycerine and castor oil, two ingredients my hair seems to love so I gave it a try. What can I say, this is my saviour, whatever went wrong before hair dries, it sprays it away. If my hair survives a night, this Will definitely wake it's potential. It has really become my staple. My hair is 3b, low porosity, medium density and at it's best, fluffy.”
