Use the water spray in my prior reply to refresh your hair on no-wash days. Also, do not use shampoos to wash hair but silicone free conditioners. Google the Curly Girl Method for more info. My favorite is Trader's Joe Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner (around $3-$4$. Vo5 Moisture Milk Conditioner (passion fruit or strawberry cream) is also good. U can find it at supermarkets and sells for only 89 cents to $1.
