I have been falling in love with wash and go’s lately. I don’t know if it is because I cannot wait for warmer weather or just the ease of being able to do it them especially after a work out. Not to mention I finally found my hair pick so I have been loving the big hair that I get when I use one.
Side note, I know I am not the only one that will change an entire regimen based on a new conditioner or a new tool either lost like my pick was or purchased.
When I first started out with my natural hair, I would literally wash and go daily. These days I do not have time for any such shenanigans, so wash and go’s are done once a week with maintenance throughout the week.
The key to achieving more days out of a style like a wash and go or even if you need a blast of moisture throughout the week because you are rocking a bun, is your refresher spray.
What is a refreshing?
Your night time routine really dictates greatly how much refreshing you need to do the following day. When we sleep our hair might get flat, it might dry out a bit and the curls might lack the structure you are used to.
Bed head isn’t sexy or healthy for your curls, not to mention you cannot go out looking like that, so typically in the morning you will wake your curls up and refresh them with something very moisture based that will allow them to spring right back into shape.
Your refresher product will typically be something water based, where the first ingredient on the product will be water, and you will also have a few ingredients dedicated to moisture and hair health.
Most of us have leave in conditioners that we use daily that are perfect for refreshing, but what if you wanted to make one for yourself.
If you are into DIY and you need a refresher spray for your hair we have 3 easy sprays you can make yourself that you can use weekly.
For all of these recipes you just need your favorite spray bottle to put the contents of each recipe in so grab yours and let’s go.
