Wash and Go Series
The wash ‘n go’s is a quick natural hairstyle that’s also low manipulation. When done correctly and with the right products, you can achiever 3, 5 and 7 day hair before needing to wash again.
In the following videos, I’m doing a wash and go on fine natural hair using different products and sharing my opinion on each of them.
feat. Curl Enhancing Smoothie & Eco Styler Olive Oil Gel
When it’s cold, I prefer to do twist outs but when it’s warm out, my go to style is the wash ‘n go! This next wash ‘n go in the series pairs up two products: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Eco Styler Olive Oil Gel Wash ‘n Go. These two products are very popular for creating natural black hairstyles.
In following video, I’m doing my wash and go using a layering effect: A leave in conditioner, Shea Moisture Curl enhancing Smoothie and Eco Styler Olive Gel. The results are different from the other product pairings in this wash ‘n go series. My hair is cut in a shape here as well.
See how I pair the two products to get a super defined wash and go on fine naturally curly hair:
feat. Beautiful Textures Curl Control Defining Pudding
Fine natural hair never ceases to amaze me. Some products work very well and others are mediocre.
When evaluating natural hair products for wash n go’s, I look at the ingredients, the smell, how my hair feels while the styling with the product as well as how it feels after it is dry.
In my continued quest to find the holy grail of products that work for my fine afro textured hair, the next curl styling product I tried was Beautiful Textures Curl Control Pudding.
Check out this video of my technique and the results after applying the product to my hair:
feat. Beautiful Textures Curl Defining Custard
Another product from Beautiful Textures…This wash ‘n go was done with surprising results. Check it out
feat. Karen’s Body Beautiful + Alikay Naturals
In this video, I’m doing a wash ‘n go using Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia leave in conditioner with Alikay Naturals Aloe Berry Gel. The result is a soft set fluffy wash and go!
I really like this combination. My hair was let feeling very soft and it smelled amazing. But while I do love the product pairing, it didn’t last as long as other wash and go’s done on my fine hair.
feat. Shea Moisture Strengthen Grown and Restore Leave In Conditioner + EcoStyler Curl and Wave Gel
I absolutely adore this combination of products for natural hair. EcoStyler Curl and Wave Gel is a staple for me for so many reasons. The two products play very nicely together and my curls are very defined.
feat. Curl Enhancing Smoothie vs. Curl Enhancing Smoothie + Curling Souffle
Such a difference 1 product can make. Check out the results using Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie for my wash and go by itself. Then, I share how to incorporate the Curling Souffle with it for a different result.
feat. CurlPrep Sweet Buttah + Around The Way Gel
I think this is by far my favorite product combination to date. No, seriously. I think my wash and go has finally arrived. Watch the video and you’ll see why 🙂
There are many other natural black hairstyles to be done with natural hair products like the ones shared here. They are cute, quick and fair quite well for fine natural hair. The wash ‘n go is only one of them but you can also use the wash and go as a base for other styles including protective styles. That’s because it adds nice texture to afro textured hair.
