While I was transitioning, I did the Curly Girl Method and it really helped to keep my new growth moisturized longer. Although I was unable to do Wash N Go while transitioning because my relaxed ends would always stick out, I decided to try it out now that I am fully natural.
The video below demonstrates how I did my very first Wash N Go style using the CG method.
I think I was a bit heavy handed on the Eco Styler Gel. After about 5 hours my hair was fully dry. The top was quite hard and crunchy. I did not like that. I however liked how it made my curls pop. Another thing was that I did have LOTS of frizz.
The shrinkage was so much!! But I am gradually learning to embrace it.
Next time, I will try to just do it without the gel or... maybe try Let's Jam Custard. I have heard that it doesn't give as much crunch factor. Overall, I love the outcome of my first wash n go style.
At night, I spritz my hair with water and gently massaged it all over my hair, making sure to coat all hair strands with water. This helped soften my hair. I then sealed my ends with castor oil. I also applied castor oil to my edges, which have now successfully grown in.
How do you do your Wash N Go?
