Finding the right combination of hold, texture, scent, and anti-frizz magic is a challenge for those with wavy hair. How do you find products that don’t just weigh down your waves?

If you don’t already live by the beach, there are other ways to create that natural windswept look.

We’ve collected our top 9 refresher mists for wavy hair. Whether you’re trying to prolong your waves between washes or need a post-workout refresh, try one of these sprays:

1. Jessicurl Awe Inspiraling Spray

If it’s a second-day spray you’re after, Jessicurl Awe Inspiraling Spray is available in Island Fantasy, Citrus Lavender, and “No Fragrance” varieties. Spray directly onto hair or spray into your hands and scrunch to revitalize your waves.

2. PATTERN by Tracee Ellis Ross Mist Spray Bottle

Many Type 2 Wavies refresh their waves with water alone – but the bottle can make a difference. This continuous mist spray bottle creates a fine mist to lightly refresh your waves between washes. Another option is to refresh with water in the form of steam, either from the shower or a hair or facial steamer.
