Not everyone is a DIY mistress and guess what? You don’t have to be. I love a great product that I can pick up at Target or get on Amazon.com that has natural ingredients from all around the world and right at my fingertips. Many of these products are not even expensive as brands are being competitive and that just makes for more inexpensive choices for us. It’s a win-win.
One popular and useful product that can be created as well as bought is a natural hair or curl refresher. It refreshes and revitalizes 2nd, 3rd or even 4th day hair without have to jump in the shower and cowash and start over. Sure, I have my spray bottle filled with distilled water and lavender oil as my usual refresher but there are days when my hair needs MORE. More, being a product that is water-based but has natural nourishing herbs and moisturizers that aid in detangling and reviving my deprived curls. Nothing against products that are not all natural but I will take a product that utilizes the natural essence of our world to breathe life back into my hair over one that doesn’t any day. Here are five refreshers that you need to check out.
Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Refresher Spray
Carol’s Daughter has been a favorite for years because it takes our tresses seriously. Their milk refresher spray uses agave nectar to lock in moisture and control frizz while the wheat protein strengthens the strands. Add some sweet almond oil and you not only soften but gain some serious manageability. The refresher is paraben and sulfate free.
Curls Quenched Curls Daily Leave In Moisturizer
I love this line because it makes sure to give you the good stuff! Water, Bean Tree, Certified Organic White Tea Extract, and Certified Organic Chamomille Extract help in adding life back into your curls in a daily moisturizer that hydrates and conditions. Great for getting hair back on track before styling.
Deva Curl, Mist-er Right Lavender Revitalizer
This refresher is a huge favorite because it not only refreshes but revitalizes and helps to deodorize the hair and scalp with the powerful lavender (my favorite essential oil!). It will bring your curls back to life while combatting frizz while it mildly cleanses the scalp and hair. Some use instead of a dry shampoo and is a great choice for in-between washes.
Oyin Handmade Juices and Berries Herbal Leave-In Hair Tonic
Oyin is famous for their Juices and Berries leave-in that harnesses the powers of Shavegrass, lavender bus, nettle leaf and chamomile flower. Hair gets softened for easier detangling and the humectants help to draw in the moisture and keep on your strands.
SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist
SheaMoisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist is excellent for thick, curly hair to hydrate, give a soft hold, and de-frizz. Can be used on wash day or for 2nd day hair and harnesses the natural powers of coconut and neem oil to protect and impart shine.
If 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th day hair is your object, then one of these 5 are the ones to try. Make sure to read all the ingredients to ensure you like what they have but I am more than sure you will find you will not only like but actually end up loving.
