Hello my naturalistas. I’m sure most, if not all, know what a wash and go is. For those that don’t, wash and go is when you don’t twist, braid, flat twist, etc after you wash your hair. If you big chopped or have a teeny weenie afro (twa), wash and go’s are probably your best friend because of how quick and easy it is to literally wash your hair and go. On the other hand, if your hair is a bit longer than a twa, wash and go’s probably aren’t as quick and easy as it use to be when your hair was shorter. I’m personally a wash&go naturalista or should I say wash&style naturalista. It takes me an hour just to apply product to my hair after I’ve washed it. Like mentioned in my previous post, I finger rake the product through my hair then let it air dry. I’ve tried to do a twist out once and my results after were horrible. I’ve never tried it again. Of course one time shouldn’t determine if I’m not a twist/braid out naturalista, but it was just sooooo time consuming and my arms were tired!! I will say this though, kudos to all my naturalistas that do twist outs, braid outs, etc because that definitely takes dedication! I someday hope I’ll be able to do twist/braid outs on my hair because I do love the volume others have from doing it. With wash and go’s, you usually have a lot of shrinkage, defined curls but less volume.
Below is a picture of my twists the one time I did it. What do you think?
Are you a wash and go or twist/braid out naturalista? Feel free to comment 🤗
