Do you use a refresher spray?

Do you use a refresher spray if your curls are losing their definition midday, or do you use a 50/50 conditioner/water spray?  I have to find the right balance of gel so that my curls look good all day, or else I need to find something to make them perk up.  I tried Ouidad botanical boost but it made my curls sticky.
2/c Coarse hair med. density.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    at times i will use the curl keeper h2o water bottle just to spray a fine mist over my hair, reactivating whatever leave in, gel i have in my hair.  it makes my hair very curly.  
    (in the past i've tried different spray bottles, terrible, and then had a plant mister which was decent, but there is something different, maybe a much finer mist, with the h2o bottle.)

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(

    Hi Gretchen.  I think the Jessicurl line is great (I like her videos a lot) but some of the Jessicurl products contain mag sulfate which doesn't play well in my hair so I've avoided looking at the Awe Inspiraling, but I'll check the ingredients.  Curlyamaryllis I'm definitely going to try some version of your idea. I might try just condish and water first but I have moroccan oil so I may add a few drops of that.  I have to check the ingredients on that too, now that I'm going full out cg!  MarciPie, I have a looser curl pattern - wish it was stronger. so I'm not sure plain water will work for me.  Maybe...if it reactivates the product.  Everyone, thanks a lot for responding.  I'm so glad for this community!
