Sometimes the thought of having to get up 30 minutes early to wash and beat our hair into submission is asking too much. It can be a real downer to wake up the day after a pretty hair day only to be faced with a bent and tangled thatch.
Not all of us are blessed with naturally cool-girl bed hair, some of us just look like a hot mess after 40 winks and need a little help to get our hair back on track. If you want to extend that gorgeous blowout for an extra day or two, a style refresher is your new secret weapon.
The key function of a style refresher is to detangle, soften, add shine, reactivate the styling benefits of the products already sitting in your hair and reform yesterday’s good hair in a New York Minute. Style refreshers mean business, here are our faves:
