Wash And Go Technique For Kinky Coily Natural Hair

Wash And Go Gel Technique For Kinky Coily Natural Hair

Can I just say, I have so much appreciation for HD cameras and great editing skills, this video is on point and totally fun to watch. Summer is wash and go season, and all the naturals are trying it no matter what the hair type. Some will give up and say, eh wash and gos are not for me, others might actually stick with it.

Regardless of where you fall, we can all appreciate a great video and Joso Anani along with aucurlsnaturelle delivers. The wash and go technique they describe involves alot of moisture and alot of gel to get the desired look. How much gel you use really depends on you and your hair type, for me, I would probably use enough to ensure that my hair lasts, which it never does.

I also believe results vary depending on the length of your hair as well, if your hair is kinky it is alot easier to maintain a wash and go when your hair is short versus when it gets much longer. One of the major problems with wash and go’s is tangling after an extended period of time, after the product has worn off and your hair strands realizes how attracted they are to one another.

This is the perfect recipe for matting and a perfect reason for you to stay away from the wash and go for life. At this point it would be beneficial to mention that you can actually apply the gel to your hair directly after your shower, or in your shower. Weird yes, but for some reason doing this really improves definition if that’s what you are looking for.

They call this the Anthony Dickey technique because that’s what he recommends at his Hair Rules salon. Personally I would probably co-wash, oil rinse and then add gel in the shower and then air dry or diffuse, but that’s me, check out Joso’s awesome video below:

    I applaud all the ladies who share their hair tips, trials and tribulations. U sooo rock!!! 🙂 However, to the women who get pissed because YOUR hair does not turn out like SOMEONE ELSE’s hair, I say, “Have a seat and FIND what works for YOU.” -_- Makes no sense at all how folks with 4a or 4b folks are thinking that someone who has 3a or 3c hair is going to “react” the same as theirs. REALLY? BE HONEST with urself. Some styles are product-related and some are just BECAUSE of the TEXTURE of the person’s hair. #.Foolishness!

    That conditioner Herbal Essence Honey I’m Strong is the BEST over the counter conditioner I’ve ever used. I’ve been using it for over a year and my hair has NEVER been as healthy as it is now. Curly hair needs moisture but people mistake hair grease/oil for moisture. If your hair is properly moisturized your hair will automatically shine and won’t need if any, as much oil

    Too much work for hair that must feel awful!!! I would rather have frizz and undefined curls if it means my hair is soft to the touch. That is far more important to me than having my hair LOOK a certain way. :-\

    Am trying to go natural cut my hair but the hairdresser told me that I need to get it texturized, but I don’t want to put any chemicals in my hair. Some please help with any advice you may have or what I should do am new at this.

      Your hairdresser might not know exactly what to do with natural hair. A texturizer is just a tamer version of a relaxer. In my opinion, just do your own trial and error and find another hair dresser. I’m natural and just do a lot of things on my own.

      Norma, so-called stylists are quick to tell you you need a texturizer when the real deal is they don’t want to be bothered with natural hair and they want to hook you in to having to get touch ups regularly. Check out YouTube for ideas to begin experimenting with!
