3 Reasons You Should Try A Dry Wash n Go

cb06145d276c289638ece62949c084e5You 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:


Wide tooth Comb

Hair Clip

Spray Bottle with Water (or leave in conditioning spray)

Styler (water based)

Afro Pick

Oil

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!

Hi! My name is Victoria Sallie and I'm a twenty something year old blogger & student living in NYC. I began my transitioning natural hair journey in January 2013, and big chopped in April 2014. I decided to start writing because I wanted to document my hair journey, plus I realized that I couldn't find all the information I needed in ONE place on the internet. Deciding to return back to my natural hair was one of the best choices that I've ever made, and I'm glad to help anyone that has a question. Happy Hair Journey!

      It’s not an all day process – it’ll take about 25 minutes if you’re working all the product through your hair and it lasts a few days 🙂

    I do this all the time.. especially the day after I actually wear my wash and go (wash day). And my hair grows so much faster when I just wear it curly and add my moisturizer daily.

      Your hair texture doesn’t have to look like that to achieve a dry wash n go. My hair texture doesn’t look like that either but my curls come out great!

    I like this idea! My youngest daughter has really bad allergies and I hate to wet her head up and then send her to bed a slightly damp head at night. I will defiantly be trying this the next time that she needs to have her hair washed( I just cowashed it last night). I’ll also try this on my oldest daughter’s head too. Thanks for the tip and share!

      Nicely written.
      Although this would probably work for someone out here…this post is actually NOT the method she uses. I DO know 😉

    I just use Kinky Curly in the summer. Wash with WEN Fig, apply Knot Today, a little Qhemet Biologics BRBC, Kinky Curly Curling Custard & I’m done in about 15″ – 30″ depending on my hair’s mood & how much of a hurry I’m in. I refresh with water in a spray bottle. Lasts 4-5 days. BTW, I have fine type 4a/b neck length hair
