How To Achieve a Perfect Wash N’ Go in 5 Easy Steps
Best products for the perfect wash and go
This post is about the Best products for the perfect wash n’ go hair for you if you have struggled to get your wash and go to look right. A few years ago, I had the most challenging time achieving a wash-and-go that I liked. Before I remember that there was only one leave-in conditioner that worked that I got from the drugstore. I hated that I could only rely on one product.
I must say that one of the reasons I can achieve a great looking wash n’ go is that I have texturized my hair texture. So take heed of my advice, as it is recommended for the best wash n go routine and go products for those with texturized hair.
I discovered great products after watching a YouTube video by an influencer name Prettywitty. She was also texturized at that moment and went over how she achieved defined curly hair on her relaxed hair.
I do not know what I would have done without this tutorial. I feel that the products used in the tutorial should be spread to the masses. So in this blog post, I will go over the best wash n’ go products that will help you achieve best wash and go for 4c hair and the perfect wash and go.
Start With Clean Hair
As with achieving any great style, you have to start with freshly washed hair. I sometimes even like to clarify my hair so that the products take well to the hair strands.
Also, do not forget to deep condition the hair. This will allow the hair to regain the strength and softness you need to achieve the perfect wash n’ go.
What Can I Use for a Wash And Go?
Marc Anthony Strictly Curls Curl Defining Lotion
This curl cream is the first product you will be applying to your hair. Take note that I noticed that this lotion does flake if you do not distribute the hair throughout. So, take three-quarter size amounts and rub through your hair and distribute. I recommend following up with a detangling brush so that the product does not build up on the hair because it is not a pretty look.
Eco Styler Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil
This style gel and step are a must. I would recommend to take a good amount and spread it throughout the hair. But for me, my hair is on the thick side. What I like to do is shingle the ego styler with a fine-toothed exfoliating brush (aka scalp massager brush)
How to Apply Hair Gel :
This step is essential to me as it helps to define your curls. I am also finding that this product is perfect for natural hair. However, for hair that has chemicals, you do not have to use as much product. You can finish with a mousse or styling lotion. Just my 2 cents
Shea Moisture Frizz free Curl Mousse
Lastly, we have the shea moisture wash and go curl mousse. I love this stuff and started using mousse on wash-and-go’s before the trend of doing a wash & go began. However, everyone is styling their hair with mousse to achieve their wash n’ go.
Nevertheless, this is one of the products I use as a cocktail using three other products for wash and go. I also feel that this mousse completes the style and defines those strands that got away that did not define with the lotion or gel.
You do not need much of the product. Four pumps in small sections of wet hair is all you need, and you are done!
Tools You Need
As with any style, there are some main tools that you will need to achieve the look. The first one is essential, and I recommend a scalp massage brush with fine-toothed combs, which is contrary to a wide tooth comb. It is also called an exfoliating brush because it is unlike a regular scalp brush used when you shampoo your hair.
The Conair cord keeper diffuser blows dryer to stretch a wash and go and is the second tool I find will make heat styling your hair in a wash n’ go a breeze.
Why I like This Dryer To Blow Dry Hair
To me, there is no other diffuser like this one. You can add a diffuser to your blow dryer, but you may not like the process as it may take longer to dry. The Conair cord keeper is a great diffuser, recommended by other influencers worldwide.
You can also opt to hair dry your hair and air dry your curl pattern if you have the time.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post on the best products for wash and go and to achieve your 4c wash and go with these styling products and incorporate it into your hair care regimen. As I mentioned in the post’s beginning, styling my hair type in a wash n’ go was not always easy.
Nevertheless, thanks to YouTube, I can get wash n go products recommendations and techniques that I can share to help you achieve the perfect wash n’ go. I hope you enjoyed reading how to do a wash and go for beginners.
