Look at those Curls POP!!!!
So I decided to do a wash and go to see how it would turn out on the length I have now. The last time I attempted the style was last July. The way it turned out was ok, but not what I was looking for. My curls weren’t popping and I felt that the amount of time it took me to do it, I should have a head full of defined curls. My first time doing a wash and go was when I did my big chop. At that time, I didn’t know what my hair needed. So after a couple of hours, it did not turn out how I expected it to. But hey, it was my first time and there’s always room to grow!!!!!
I didn’t do my hair on freshly washed hair this time. I decided to do a co wash, so if I didn’t like it, I could just easily shampoo my hair. I co washed with Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner. I turned my water on cool and rinsed most of it out and left a little bit in. I added just a little of Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave In for a little more moisture. I then used EcoStyler Olive Oil Gel to clump my curls together. I didn’t use a styling tool at all for this process, I used my fingers to detangle as I was in the shower. Then used my fingers again to do the raking motion to clump my curls while applying the gel. I didn’t have enough time to air dry, so I used my hand drier with a diffuser to dry my hair. I think that is another reason my hair was a little big and puffy.
I can honestly say, that I do like the way my curls turned out, but just didn’t like that it was crunchy. I will try to perfect this style because now that I have more length, my shrinkage doesn’t really bother me. This will be one of my summer go to styles, especially when I am being lazy…shhhhhhhh…don’t tell anybody I said I was being lazy. LOL
