This caption may actually be a little misleading seeing as I’ve been natural for about eight years now, but I have been in college for almost 4 years and haven’t really learned how to style and manipulate my natural hair. I had gotten so used to protective styles like braids and weaves that I couldn’t handle my real hair for more than a couple of weeks at a time, and that was pushing it. Not to mention wearing back to back closures made my edges thin from the tension on them. Enough was enough, so I have taken this past month and a half to explore natural styles and daily hair upkeep. Here’s a few highlights to show you all how it’s been going.
Wash N’ Go on Dry Hair
This time I wanted the wash n’ go look without having to fully wash my hair, so I actually call this a Wet N’ go. I used a spray bottle to dampen each section, then I applied Shea Moisture’s Coconut Leave-In Treatment and Eco Styler gel to it. I detangled with a paddle brush and separated each strand to make sure the products were distributed evenly. I ran a blow dryer through it to get rid of some access water but not for too long so it wouldn’t dry and shrink. I prefer an air dry to keep as much length as possible. This is the best wash n’ go I have done yet and here are some pictures of the second day.
That’s it for now, stay tuned for more styles like twist outs and braid outs as i continue on this natural hair adventure!
