Washed and Went

Hey y'all!  Since becoming natural, wash and go's have been the bain of my existence.  When I first became natural, I swore up and down that wash and go's would be my "go to" style.  *NOT!*   My curls don't clump, my hair gets dry, 2nd day hair is never attainable ... the list goes on and on.  BUT every once in a while I get the itch and I have to scratch it.  So yea, I diverted from my typical twist out and once again tried the wash and go.

What I used:
Shea Moisture's African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo
Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Conditioner
Shea Moisture's African Black Soap Purification Masque
100% pure Avocado Oil
Paul Mitchell The Conditioner Leave-in
Eden BodyWorks Curl Defining Creme'

What I did:
After shampooing and deep conditioning, I sectioned my hair into 8 sections and proceeded to apply my styling products in the following order: Paul Mitchell The Conditioner Leave-in, 100% pure Avocado Oil, and Eden BodyWorks Curl Defining Creme'. I smoothed each product through my hair using the pray and smooth method and allowed my hair to air dry.  I avoided touching my hair during the drying process to prevent frizz.  My curls were relatively defined and super soft.

What I would change:
I would use gel the next go-round to allow for a little more definition and hold.  My hair was GINORMOUS by the end of the day!  No 2nd day hair for me :(

If you are a more visual person, peep the YouTube video below:


*Anyone else have a similar experience with a style you keep going back to but just cannot master?

**Update: The OCD in me would not allow me FAIL yet again, so the next morning I hopped in the shower, soaked my hair with water and applied conditioner and Kiss My Face Upper Management Gel in sections.  I'm much happier today! Check my Instagram for the end result!
