Your curls look amazing on wash day; they’re bouncy, shiny and defined. But how do you get 2nd, 3rd, 4th and even 5thDay curls? It’s one of the biggest challenges for us curly girls.

But armed with the right product and some tried-and-true techniques, it can be quick and easy to revive your curls without hopping back in the shower.

The new Curl Keeper Refresh Next Day Styling Spray from Curly Hair Solutions – the brand that brought us Editors’ Choice Hall of Fame frizz fighter Curl Keeper Original- Curl Keeper Refresh is a silicone-free, water-based miracle product loaded with curl-loving ingredients such as aloe, chamomile and calendula to transform flatty frizzy curls into fresh, defined, voluminous ringlets in five minutes.

Using Curl Keeper Refresh, here are some of the top tried-and-true techniques for reactivating your curls:

  1. Sleep with your hair in a satin bonnet or a satin pillowcase to reduce friction.
    1. Spray on Curl Keeper Refresh and flip hair forward and spray over curls. Lightly scrunch curls upwards. Allow hair to dry.
  2. For a faster routine or to add volume, use a diffuser on your hair dryer's lowest setting.
  3. For added definition, use spray on Curl Keeper Refresh and finger twirl pesky ringlets.
  4. For additional volume, - Flip your head forward and zhoosh up your roots. (For extra volume, flip your head forward and rub your fingers back and forth at the roots to fluff out your curls.).
  5. Curl Keeper Refresh reactivates with water, so you can fill a spray bottle with water and spritz this throughout your hair. We swear by the Curly Hair Solutions H20 Water Bottle.
  6. Curl Keeper Refresh is the latest invention from veteran Canadian hairdresser, who became obsessed with curls after giving a client a bad haircut. He made it his mission to figure out how to work with curly hair. He has spent more than two decades studying how curly hair looks when it's wet and dry, how it shrinks and what makes it frizz. He uses The Curly Hair Institute, his Toronto salon, as a living laboratory for product development, finding out what his clients need and tweaking his formulas until they’re the best they can be.

    Knowing that his clients needed a curl refresher, Torch worked hard to create the perfect formula. He wanted to offer something that superior to any other curl refresher on the market – a product that would make life easier for curly girls. The mix of ingredients in Curl Keeper Refresh revitalizes curls while offering hold to lock them in. It also neutralizes odor – a key benefit for curlies who like to work out.

    Torch even put extra thought into the trigger and how it dispenses the product into the hair. The “mini trigger” is a step above a pump spray creates a fine-mist spray that distributes better.The unique formula of Curl Keeper Refresh reactivates with water, so simply re-wetting frizzy areas with wet hands can get you many fantastic frizz-free days between shampoos. 

    Curl Keeper Refresh is available in the 8-ounce size as well as a 3.4 travel size to toss into your suitcase, gym bag or purse.

    “It’s really a lifestyle product that is easy and quick to use with multiple benefits,” says Torch.
