Wash n go's are the perfect opportunity to define our coils! They are super convenient, easy to do and come in to play when we want to get a break from our twist outs. Here I'll give you the step by step process of how to achieve a wash n go and refresh them each morning. 1. Wash or CoWash Wash or CoWash your hair as you normally would and deep condition if needed. This style works best on soaking wet hair. 2. L.O.C. Method  Use the L.O.C. Method to ensure that your hair is thoroughly moisturized. Not sure what that is? Check this out! Great products to use are Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Leave in, Organic Coconut oil and Creme of Nature's Pudding Perfection curl enhancing creme.

Define Coils  To define your coils use a styling gel such as Creme of Nature's Twirling Custard. Take small sections and rake the product though with your fingers. This allows your hair to clump resulting in your natural curl pattern to show.

4. Allow to dry

Let your hair dry either naturally by air drying or use a diffuser attachment on a hair dryer.

5. Fluff at roots and position

Wash n Go's tend to result in a lot of shrinkage. Once dry you may notice a "gel cast" on your hair that will feel hard or crunchy to touch. Use a pick to lift at the roots and rub your hands lubricated with oil over your hair and position the curls to your liking.

As for nighttime, just sleep with a satin bonnet or pineapple your hair if you have the length. The next mornings to come just refresh your hair as needed with a liquid leave in such as Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Leave in. Fluff with your fingers and reposition your curls doing fingercoils as needed.
