You don’t need to wash your hair
I hate the thought of going outside in the cold with a wet head. I sometimes do an overnight wash n go but my hair is still semi damp in the morning when I get ready to leave.
You don’t have to actually wash your hair to achieve this look, and you can actually do it on old, dry hair. If you are trying to stretch a few days between washes, you can do this style and rock it for a few days. Just like a normal wash n go, it will get bigger the more days that you wear it.
One thing to be mindful of however is that you should definitely wash your hair when you’re ready to change styles again, especially if you had a previous style before this one, because you don’t want to risk getting a lot of product build up. Use a clarifying shampoo* or your favorite cleansing alternative to thoroughly wash your hair. To make things a little easier, try not to use too much product when first creating the style.
Only Requires a Few Products
Unlike other styles that may require a ton of products to make it work, you don’t have to use many products to achieve this style.
Here are the products you need to achieve this style:
Spray Bottle with Water (or leave in conditioning spray)
Styler (water based)
The wide tooth comb* is optional; you can finger detangle your hair but I find that my curls are more defined after I remove all of the shed hair from my old hairstyle.
The best part about the dry wash n go is that you can do it whenever you’d like. It’s a great way to refresh your hair between washes and give you a different style. This style shouldn’t take more than 15-20 minutes depending on the length of your hair. Just shake and go! It will prevent you from having to do a normal wash n go everyday, and you get the benefits of the style. It’s the best of both worlds!
