As a natural girl, I pretty much have tried every curl set there is out there. But the easy wash & go has always alluded me.
I’ve watched tons of tutorials about wash & go’s and quickly realized I had made my first mistake thinking there was something quick and/or easy about this style. I’m not sure how the wash & go got its name, but I think the “wash and do 15 things” is a much better name for it.
How I Did My First Successful Wash & Go
Anywho, I decided to give it a shot and I actually loved the results.
For my WNG, I used the Pantene’s Gold Series, which is my new staple line. I started by cowashing with their deep hydrating cowash and then deep conditioning with their repairing mask (I left it on for 5 minutes will I showered). I blotted my hair dry and plopped it with an old T-shirt for a few minutes. Next, I sectioned my hair into six and went over each section with the Pantene Gold Series Leave-In Detangling Milk, making sure to touch each curl and detangle at the same time.
After leave in conditioning, I went back over each section with Black Castor and Flaxseed Oil Eco Styler Gel raking an ample amount of product over each section of hair. I then stretched and pinned my hair into three sections to elongate my curls.
Then I threw on a headband, let it dry, picked it out and Voila! I must admit, it certainly required less fuss than my twist out and gave me just as much if not more gratification.
It’s going to be a curly summer!
