Is The Type 4 Wash And Go Really Taboo Or Is It All In Your Head?

1bPersonally, 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?!

    My hair is all the 4abc texture together and I do wash and go. I think that if u have created a good routine and your hair is healthy u can rock any style 😉

    Let’s just say in theory a wash and go is whatever state your hair dries I get that. But personally I don’t enjoy the look of a wash and go on my 4c hair. So for me I won’t go that route. For others that do that’s great!

    It’s all in your head. As black women we feel we can’t. Can’t can’t can’t so its all in your head too many type 4 wash and go videos aroun for me to believe it is taboo. Why DF is there taboo anything in this movement???

      The wash and go is just one style of a thousand. I agree let it go or if you want your natural curls find curlfriends and use their methods. I know I saw type 4 wash and gos first when I started watching YT.
