actually last night i discovered by adding a bit too much gel at night and sleeping on it, really really works for me! when i woke up in the morning it was still crunchy so all i had to do was scrunch out the crunch, and there was no need for refreshing. i really recommend applying product overnight and sleeping with it above the pillow for anyone who has to get up early in the morning, and doesn't fancy walking around with wet hair for a couple of hours! (well if works for you of course). i think i have FINALLY found a routine that works really well for me and leaves me with shiny curls which barely needs to be touched in the morning!
