How to Use
Rated 4.18 out of 5 stars
For years I've been searching for methods or products for 2nd day (and on) hair. I wash my hair every 7-10 days and before this, was having to put it up on day 3, sometimes even day 2! I find everything is just way too heavy or works for a few hours and then leaves me a frizzball by mid afternoon.
Even after reading all the good reviews, I was still skeptical but it's pretty affordable so I pulled the trigger and I couldn't be happier. I mean, WOW! Just spritz and my curls are actually better than wash day bc now they can be fluffier and more voluminous.
The smell is a little strong at first if you have a sensitive nose, but once it dries, you can't smell it unless you put your nose on your hair so this could be a great product if you cooked a smelly meal or if you're a smoker.
This product is now my favorite. I can't say how much money and time I spent trying to figure out how to refresh my curls! 10/10 would recommend this.
I'm newer to embracing my natural texture so I've been trying quite a few products and looking for me to extend the life of my waves and curls between wash days. My texture ranges from 2B waves to 3A ringlets, my hair is like medium thickness but low to medium density and medium to high porosity (from some highlights and history of heat damage).
The first thing I noticed is the scent of this spray. It is HEAVILY fragranced-- if you are sensitive to scent or fragrance, this is not a product for you. The scent itself is fine. I'm not trying to wear it as perfume but also not living for it. The spray is a really nice fine mist, so it does feel like it can coat the hair evenly. I always appreciate a locking mechanism on spray bottles so that's a plus as well.
This product did not feel good on my hair though. Once dried, it was so crispy feeling, and not a like "heavily gelled/pre-scrunching" kind of crispy but more like a "I styled exclusively with salt spray" kind of crunchy. There's absolutely no way I could use this two days in a row. It did help revive some curl and looked okay but I couldn't stand to touch my hair.
I'm going to give this another shot, maybe combining it with a little bit of spray/diluted leave-in to bring a little bit of moisture into the mix but for now, I'm not sold on this being a good refresher. I'll find other ways to use it (the waste of returned items being tossed bums me out) so it might work for me if I intentionally use it as a texturizing spray (sparingly).

I wanted to like this. I felt like I had to use a lot of product for my hair and it was just super sticky and made my hair tangled rather than refreshed my curls. I like the spray bottle and I didn't think it smelled too bad. Just didn't really work for me.

It helped my hair so much. It adds volume and makes my curls look so much bigger. My curls went from dry and back to normal. Honestly, this product is a game changer!

I love the curl reviver, it's great for between wash days and as an alternative to oil to get rid of gel cast when styling. The smell is also amazing

I am not a person who likes flowery scents, so if you do… You'll love it. The smell is TOO strong and never fades away, kinda like that ex you can't get rid of. I think the mist it's self works okay, but I literally just can't with the smell
Joy from Richland
I use this on my toddlers curls when she wakes up in the morning. Her hair goes flat and tangled through the night but if i spray this on her hair and finger comb, her curls look amazing. They go right back to her tight curls like she just came out of the bath. It also smells amazing. I will definitely be buying more once I run out of our current bottle.

The smell is soooo bad, I choke and cough every time I use it. The smell does not disappear from my hair so I have to smell it all day long. I suppose it does ok refreshing my curls but I can't get over the smell. It's going back to ULTA.
AJ from San Francisco
This always makes my curls incredible looking on non wash days throughout the week. Even better than my actual wash days and I get a lot of compliments. And a whole lot of volume! Only con is that it leaves a coating on my hair that comes off on my hands easily and it dries the hair out a little, but no one is touching my hair, it washes out well and it smells great, so it's worth it. I love it!
CLJ13 from Philadelphia, Pa
This works great with reviving curls and smells good. I did notice it feels like a coating on your hair but, that's the only con. ( it washes out easily )

I've been using this for a few months and I have mixed feelings about it. It definitely works at refreshing my hair, my hair will have much more volume and definition after I use this but it also really dries out my hair. I do have over processed bleached blonde 2b/c hair.

I like the performance for the price point. This product worked well to refresh the appearance of my fine, loose curly hair (3a). I will use the rest of the bottle but don't think I will repurchase. The scent isn't my favorite, though I don't mind it. The main drawback is that when I use it, my hair gets more tangly. Something about the product makes my hair tangle in a "fluffy" way. It doesn't appear to look bad, but it makes it more difficult to detangle when I go to take a shower, like my hair sticks to itself much more than normal, although it does not feel sticky to the touch. Overall the product isn't bad, but I want to try other products to see if I can find something I like better.

This reviving mist was exactly what I was looking for. I have long, thin, wavy hair very frizzy when letting it air dry. Gel and mouse often leaves my hair crunchy or weighs it down to where you can't even see my waves and curls. The reviving mist helps with my frizzy hair and helps define my waves and curls. Love the way it smells.

This stuff is amazing! Made my 3 day lived in curls look new and fresh again.
Bree from SC
I think this works well for my hair and it smells better than a lot of things. Only reason it's getting 4 stars is bc I ordered it and it came in open, so there was a mess in the box.
Gab from Florida
Pretty good for day 2/3 curls, helps with excess frizz and makes my curls bouncier! My only complaint is that the smell is so potent I have to hold my breath a few seconds after spraying it
Sarah from Lincoln, NE
Light spray for my thin 2b/c waves and smells INCREDIBLE!
Kristen M. from undisclosed
Smells wonderful and makes my curls look brand new!
Emily V. from undisclosed
Smells amazing!! Does an awesome job making my curls pop, even on dry hair! Not super greasy as well which I really like, which shows that they used high quality ingredients for your hair! As always I love their packaging design, but the locking nozzle is super helpful!
Abigale V. from undisclosed

Sueann K. from undisclosed
One of my favorites! It definitely keeps my curls together and looking great.
Shannon from undisclosed
I usually do quite a bit of research before purchasing hair care products but bought this on a whim and I am so impressed! This product works exactly as advertised, smells nice without being overpowering, and I love that the container is recyclable! I have wavy/curly hair and this helps make my curls more even and frizz-free without weighing them down or making them crunchy.
I will definitely be repurchasing.

I got this product for my mom as she starred wear second day curls to help retouch her hair! She really likes it!
Roberta J. from undisclosed
Good product , easy to use ,works on wet or dry hair, no harsh cemicals, leaves the hair with a clean light feeling
Montserrat N. from undisclosed
The curl reviving mist is my new favorite hair product for second day curls! Trying to go without washing my hair daily leaves me with few options for second and third (and sometimes fourth) day hair. Usually it ends up in a clip because I have ZERO skill to make my hair look cute. This spruced up my curls without weighing them down or making my hair sticky or hard. Love the light scent and I'm definitely adding this to my routine!
Kayla B. from undisclosed
Smells awesome! Leaves a weird texture, especially when paired with the curl cream. You could probably skip this one and stick to water or spray detangler.
Melinda J. from undisclosed
Way too much of a perfume smell. I can't spray it without choking and my family won't let me spray it anywhere near them either. It is a fine mist so it takes a lot of spray to refresh the curls. Not as moisturizing as I had hoped.
