You can simply Wash and Go – No. Although it is called a Wash and Go, there are more steps involved; if you have tried just washing and going you probably hated the tangles you ended up with. Most Wash and Goers will wet their hair, seal in with an oil, apply leave in conditioner and then top with a gel or butter.
Wash and Gos are only for Type 3 hair – Not so. Anyone can rock a Wash and Go, but if you are looking for defined curls, then you will be coming up short if you do not have them. A Wash and Go is allowing your own texture to be rocked, and no distinct or particular curl is required.
5 Reasons to Rock a Wash and Go
Easy Nighttime Routine – This is the biggest and best reasons by far. Many naturals who love rocking the Twists or Twist-Outs feel the need to redo them EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, and depending on how small they are, you can easily spend anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours redoing them! Who in the world has time for that? Not a Wash and Go diva for sure. What do we do at night? At the most, we may pineapple, and at the least we lay our happy heads on our satin pillowcases.
How is that possible? Well, believe it or not, but many Wash and Goers will happily jump in the shower in the morning and re wet their hair, slap in some conditioner and gel and go. There are some who do not like going out with a wet head, but let me tell you the vasts majority have no qualms about it and even in the winter time.
Cannot Master A Twist-Out – *raises hand*. Yup, that is me, but I am far from alone. I know there are tons of naturals who have tried mastering a Twist-Out, Flat-Twisting or even a Braid-Out, and just cannot achieve the look they are going for. Is that you? Well, if so, then fret no more, and jump on the Wash and Go bandwagon with pride. I have tried for years to master a Twist-Out worth wearing longer than a day and failed miserably, as my ends are either frizzing up, or it turns into a tangled mess.
