Lately, I have been rocking my wash n go, which has been on my Instagram recently. I have my routine already set. I wear my wash n go for about four days, and after the fourth day I place my hair in an updo for the rest of the week. As you continue to work with your hair, it’s going to surely let you know what’s working and what you need to put away until a later time. I used to think wash n gos didn’t work for me until I did this (place my article in here). As time passes, you are going to learn what works and what doesn’t work for your hair. Don’t cross off anything just because it doesn’t work for the moment. It took me a while (almost 6 years) to perfect my wash n go and sometimes all it has to do with are the products. Once you find the right products that work, it’s time to make it last more than the first day. The exciting part is the second day and beyond are the best days for the wash n go because the hair begins to swell and the volume looks amazing. So, here are three ways you can preserve your wash no go.
The good old pineapple method. The pineapple method is a good way to get some stretch at the bottom of your hair while also preserving your curls. In the pineapple method you simply pull all your hair on top as if it was an extra high ponytail. Place a scrunchie or ouchless hair tie around your hair, and let it hang in front.
The pineapple bun is the same concept as the pineapple method but you put it in a bun. This is the one that works better for me, but do what works for you. I put my hair in a pineapple ponytail and then wrap the ends around loosely to make a bun.
Once you set your hair in a wash n go you can take your hair in large sections. When I do this method I choose to do 4 large loose twists and bobby pin it to my head towards the middle. This is mainly when I don’t have my satin pillowcase and need to use my satin scarf instead to protect my hair
In all these styles make sure to wear a satin scarf or sleep on a satin pillow case to protect your hair
What is your favorite way to preserve your wash n go at night?
