Wash and Go

My three favorite words and style of this week has been wash and go. A wash and go has got to be one of the most simplest style for any natural regardless of the length of hair you have. It is really easy to create this look and this is how I do my wash and go.

Step 1. Wet hair while in the shower.

Step 2. While hair is dripping wet apply leave in conditioner. I’m using Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine leave in conditioner.

Step 3. Apply a light moisturizer or little amount oil of your choice. I use a whipped shea butter mix I made a while ago. (This step is optional, depending on your styling product step 3 & 4 could be combined)

Step 4. Apply a curling gel or desired styling product using your fingers. I’m using smooth and shine curl activating gel with aloe.

Step 5. Let it dry. You can air dry, use a diffuser attached to a blow dryer or use a hooded dryer. I like to air dry. 

Most important: do not touch your hair until it is completely dry or it will become frizzy and fuzzy looking. I had to learn the hard way. I must admit I am a victim of the hand in fro syndrome.

Hope these tips help you to achieve a really nice wash and go look.
