Today is wash day, you have followed your hair routine such as pre-shampooing, hair mask, and conditioner.  Your curls are perfectly defined and you’re gorgeous.  The next day you hope to be able to achieve the same look but your hair isn’t as defined and it’s in need of refreshing.  You don’t have the time nor desire to go through the wash day routine all over again.  You notice your hair is still coated with the products that you used on your wash day and you don’t want to wash all that goodness away so soon. 

What Should You Do?

Our instinct is to add more product to the hair, leading to product overload.  The hair can become heavy and undefined. One of the tricks that I use is to revive my curls is to spray the hair with water without the use of additional products such as leave in, combing crème or gel. 

Here’s How?

Section out your hair into 2 to 4 parts secure it with clips.  Spray each section with water and gently re-work product that’s already on the hair by doing a scrunching motion.  You can apply this trick to wash and go hair, twist-outs or braid-outs.

Pros & Cons

Pros

-The Hair Feels Lighter and with more volume since there’s no additional layer of products added to the hair.

_You can postpone your wash day a few extra days.

-Your products can last you longer.

Cons

-There may be some frizz since the products found on the hair has been slightly diluted.

-If the hair is extremely dried it may need an additional product to hydrate the hair.

If you find the hair may be frizzy apply some oil to the hair once dried.
