Hey y’all! Hope everyone is safe, healthy & well. So while on lockdown I’ve been doing many things, including experimenting with my hair. Mainly how to do a proper wash & go now that I’m all natural..,well I’ve got about a 1/4 inch left of relaxed hair to be whacked off. For whatever reason, I was terrified to try a wash & go on my own. For those of you who are unfamiliar with what that is, it’s what we refer to when our hair is washed and air dried to wear curly. But after research and YouTube videos I decided to give it a go. I discovered that foams and mousses work best for my hair. So far this one is my absolute favorite!
You only need this one product to achieve great results. It has built in moisturizer and conditioner so you don’t need a leave in conditioner prior to applying this. And you can use it on damp or dry hair. The best tip I’ve found is to apply the product by section. You don’t want to just apply to your entire head at once, which is what I did the first time. Also I’m not a fan of air drying my hair, so another tip that I found works great is sitting under a hooded dryer for about 20 minutes. Once dry, all you go is fluff your curls and you’re good to go!
For me, the entire process takes about an hour. I wash my hair in the shower and use a towel to dry it a little. I use a large comb to detangle. Then I start to section my hair and apply 2-4 pumps of the product per section. Once you do a section, leave it alone. After all of your hair is done, sit under a hooded dryer or air dry.
I can’t wait until my hair grows more. My hair goal is ginormous hair! I will say, this style turns out better and better each time I do it. I wash my hair once a week and this lasts without frizz for about 3 days. After the 3rd day I usually resort to a ponytail, but you can apply more product when you need to refresh your curls. Bottom line, I highly recommend this product. Also follow them on social media because they have many tutorials that will show you how to use the products and they’re super helpful!
