Hello, Wash and Go!




Ok, y'all I am excited about my hair today! It has been quite sometime since I have be able or wanted to wear a wash and go.  WNGs have not been my friend in the past mainly because it takes my thick mane hours, sometimes a full day, to dry completely. Another reason why I was not a fan of WNGs was because the shape of my hair was weird but since the cut I have been more than satisfied with my hair style these days.


Today I washed with WEN's Fig Cleansing Conditioner, which is formulated for ethnic hair. I really love this product. It gives me AMAZING slip and my hair so super soft after washing with it. Last week I scraped my change together and and bought a 16oz bottle to have in my collection of hair products (best decision ever...). The defining product I used to hold my curls  today is by Ampro. You know, the "black gel" folks? They have a new olive oil gel that is great! Let me just say I AM IN LOVE with the gel now. It has taken the place of my beloved Eco Styler gel which I was unable to live without for a long time. Even though I haven't worn a WNG in a while, I do have a preferred method. I have to prep my hair in the shower from start to finish. My hair must be soaking wet before applying any defining products so putting the gel on my strands while in the shower works best for me.  As you can see in the above picture, my coils are popping! My hair is still kind of wet in the middle but that is to be expected. Overall I am pleased with my WNG results. One of my friends said my curls look like I have an s-curl. LOL, I died laughing but it's so true! My wet curls look a lot like I have a jheri curl going on but hey, I didn't have to pay or chemically treat my hair to get the look... ;o)

xoxo,
Alex

I LOVE that Ampro Olive Oil Gel!! I got a pretty decent size sample when I ordered some products from curlmart and will be purchasing a tub if I can find one asap. I have a tub of ecostyler but never got into it (I am transitioning and plan to chop in August so I need my ampro ready!)

Love your site!

So you rake it in with a comb or with your fingers?
Wash and gos are not my friend either but I really want to give it a try this summer..
I tried it a few times with eco styler but my hair was ugh! <- that's the best way i can explain it lol so I gave up trying again..Eco style is however my staple gel to tame my edges..might have to give ampro a try : )

I have never tried Ampro. I might have to put it on the list. Your curls look great- very defined.

I wish my curls would pop with wash and go.
