Hey guys. So I have been doing a bit more wash ‘n’ go’s lately and have grown to love them. When I started the maximum hydration challenge, it just seemed normal to do wash ‘n’ go’s because they are so quick to do and you can go about your business soon afterwards without waiting for the hair to dry and re-style. Who says type 4 kinky hair can’t do wash ‘n’ go’s? In this video, I share with you how I do my wash ‘n’ go’s for the best results.
Kind of. These are not pictures from when I was transitioning but the state of my hair right now is kind of where I was some 2 years ago when I had hit the 12 month mark in my transition.
For those who don’t know yet, I had a major set back in my hair journey and I experienced excessive shedding some time last year. I am not sure when though. You know when you are losing hair, sometimes you don’t know how serious the issue is until maybe there is hardly any hair left. Well for me, fortunately there was still a lot of hair on my head. However, as my new hair grows in, it makes my longer, older hair look kind of funny, if I allow it and I will not. So in my second transition, I remembered this hairstyle.
As you may know, we are right in the middle of winter and I chose to do a protective style that will not only be a low manipulation style but also hide my hair to protect it from the harsh winter cold and the excessively dry indoor heating. I chose to do the style myself and need I say, it took me 8 hours to do and I am not doing it again on my own. Never. I have learnt my lesson. And because I did it myself, I also did not tie the synthetic hair quite enough at the back section so they were busy pulling out quite often. Although I loved the style to bits, I could not keep it fro longer than 2 weeks. I had to remove it and now I am back to my chunky twists aka Havana twists. I have learnt my lesson.
