2nd day curl refresher spray?

What do you all use to refresh your curls on day 2+?

I usually use Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Hold & Shine Daily Moisture Mist, I ran out today so I was thinking of trying something new before buying another bottle. I've also tried the Curls LAVISH CURLS, but I hated the way it sprayed a stream instead of an actual spray.

Any recommendations?

    I usually dilute some leave-in in a spray bottle, or a mix of the LottaBody Style Me Texturizing Setting Lotion and AVJ. I also like Soultanicals Hair Sorrell and have been wanting to try their other Kink Drinks.

    Lately, I have been putting a few drops of argan oil on my hair at night, and then in the a.m., I mist my hair with some water (I need to use a very fine mist, or else my hair frizzes) and let that dry. I then mist a little bit more and scrunch. I repeat until I feel like my hair is pretty hydrated. I then spray again and then scrunch in a little bit of leave-in, maybe a pea size. I let that dry, and usually that is good. I will finish with a little hairspray after my hair is dry and I have scrunched out any crunch.

    I haven't had good luck with refresher sprays, but I have recently decided that that is because my second-day hair needs to be a little damp before I put anything on it. Humuctants like aloe and glycerin are great for my hair as long as there is already a little moisture in the hair. If my hair is dry, the aloe and glycerin just make it crispy.

    I make my own by diluting a small amount of cheap coconut conditioner. Spary to dampen my hair all over then use a few pumps of foam-type mousse scrunched in (Curls Unleashed foam or Shea moisture).
