Personally, I knew that I could do twist outs, but every time I tried, they come out not looking the way I would prefer. Eventually, I decided that I didn’t like them, and chose not to do them.
That doesn’t mean that I can’t create the style; it just means I either haven’t found the right product and technique, or I’m expecting something other than what I am getting. Either way, it doesn’t mean I cannot create and wear the style, it is literally my issue, and not my hair’s.
We want to encourage you to stop putting limitations on your hair because of your perception of what is standard, and rock any style you want including the Wash and Go.
If you are type 4, you can rock a wash and go just like a 3C can rock a chunky twist out. Your hair is unique; you can create your own personal Wash and Go, so say goodbye to the flawed way of thinking, and embrace a new outlook on your hair and your mindset. We have two demonstrations that will show you just how to do it.
Wash And Go on 4C Hair with Eco Styler gel*:
Stella Muadika shares her variation of a Wash and Go on 4C hair. She does a stellar job, and gives herself amazing lift, definition and volume. She uses a comb to evenly distribute the gel throughout each section and she uses a diffuser* at the roots, and the regular dryer (not too close) to dry her hair, and give her the lift she’s looking for. She ends up with a Wash and Go that has movement, height, and life that is on point and perfect.
Donedo brings us a slightly different Wash and Go, where shaking is a major component in the process. A dryer and diffuser* is also used in her technique, but she shares two different products, and shows how they look in her hair from day 1 to day 3.
Both women have amazing looks, and we see that it’s all about the product and technique which helps them to pull off the style. You can choose to use Eco Styler Gel* to get more curl defining hold, or you can use a lighter product for that curly fro look that is so popular right now. Now, get in that shower and give the Wash and Go a chance, will ya?!
