Wash n Go Newbie

Post by Jayla » Thu Nov 12, 2015 5:14 pm

This coming week, I want to sport my very first (TRUE) wash n go. Defined. Out. Unstreched. I've done wash n gos before, but I wasn't really aiming for defined hair and my hair was always in a puff or two. My hair is starting to get some length, so I want to try new styles that aren't my typical puff. My goal is to embrace my texture in a "down" state for once. :mrgreen:
Does anyone have any tips for me as far as method of product application and whether I should co-wash or clarify? Really, any tips would be extremely helpful. I have a head of thick, coarse 4a curls, so I'm dealing with a lot of hair (a big reason why I don't normally care to try to define every stand). I believe my hair is medium to low porosity hair, and it takes crazy amounts of time to dry, even after t-shirt drying.
Thank you!

Thank you!

I recommend using Aunt Jackies Elongating blah blah Flaxseed Gel but if you are just using any purling product you need you cover your fingers in it and then comb through sections of your hair with your fingers with with product on to ensure distribution & elongating your hair. after doing that, scrunch your hair to encourage curls. I also take it an extra step further and that the men's boar bristle brush (the one that is a n oval shape and fits in your hand) and put it at the ends and the move in a circular motion to also encourage curls.

Wow. I've never heard of the boar bristle trick. I might try it! Thank you!!
