    My crown gets frizzy so quickly. I guess I need to spend more time applying product there.

    I also need to be a bit less lazy and spend a bit more time styling my hair.

    I found a picture of my first wash n go attempt almost 2 years ago. My hair looks the same length as now and I haven’t cut much since then. I think I will ALWAYS shrink up to chin length.

    I co-washed with Aussie Smooth Conditioner, put my hair into 4 sections and detangled it.

    I wore my Turbie Twist to dampen my hair.
    I used the Curls BB Twist-N-Shout cream as my leave-in, and Xtreme Wetline Aloe (Green) gel as my styler. I sealed that with DE Almond & Avocado mist, and finished with OGX Orchid Oil spray. I'm currently air-drying my hair.

    Is it her you are talking about?

    Her hair reminds me of mine a bit

    @Shadow_Lace how does the curls blueberry bliss smell. I have 2 other Curls products and I LOVE the way they smell. On the other hand neither works well on my hair.

    I’ve gotten the best definition doing it this way. Keep in mind you may have to use more product. Sometimes I must do it slightly damp (not soaking wet though) just to make application easier.

    Did my wash n go favorite combination at the moment, Camille Rose almond jai twisting butter and wetline gel. I can easily get 5 days of moistureized hair with this combo but I’m really enjoying washing short hair. I’ll redo on Wednesday.

    Still damp but looking promising so far. Next time I'll try with Renpure Rose Water conditioner. I'll also probably pick up some pink eco this week.

    @GettingKinky

    It has a strong smell of blueberries, think like a blueberry flavored alcoholic drink or candy (very sweet). If you ever smelled the Curls Blueberry Bliss Control Paste, it's just like that.

    Really surprised at how soft my hair is drying. When I first tried conditioner only years ago it dried super crunchy lol. Used Tresemme Naturals way back when. Was watching some old MahoganyCurls videos as she's the entire reason I ever tried and was able to master my wngs. Getting back to what I know.

    Why do you think it’s working better today than before?

    I can only chalk it up to the differences in the conditioners. Probably need to seek out the most moisturizing ones I can find whenever I do it.

    I did a protein treatment with Joico K-pak. I can feel/see a difference already. I also picked up Bed Head Dumb Blonde Reconstructor. I’m going to rotate the two. Once Komaza has their reconstructor back in stock, I’ll pick that up too. (And use it every 8 weeks or so) I have to remember that it’s about maintaining an optimal moisture/protein balance, and not just moisture, moisture, moisture...

    I did my WnG with Oyin Hair Dew and Aunt Jackie’s flax gel. Hair Dew is my favorite leave-in but I’ve never used it when doing a WnG. I don’t know why I thought it wouldn’t work under gel. But so far, so good. :up:

    I gave my Oyin Hair dew away. I didn’t like that it was so thick. Now I kind of wish I had kept it.

    I like to use a little bit of hair dew and a little bit of water (I just mix them in my hand) and scrunch through as a morning refresher. I alternate using the dew and Briogeo Curl Charisma.

    The right side of my hair looks nice and moisturized and the left side looks dry and frizzy. Sigh....

    Day 2 is looking good. Some frizz on the outer layer, esp the top, but that was to be expected since I took two naps yesterday w/o caring about my hair lol. Love the idea of only using conditioner for the ease and cost but I'm not sure I'd do it every single time. I need to get some clips to hold the front down when drying. Doing it with a scarf stretches the curls too much. I want to try the NYM Curl Talk line soon-ish. Smells really good.

    Small tip for anyone who wants the old formula of Wetline Xtreme gel, get the one in containers shaped like soccer balls.

    I absolutely understand the low po struggle. I was looking for some way to dry my hair faster so last wash, I tried a dry WnG and it worked out pretty well. I washed, conditioned, and applied my leave in like usual. Then I wrapped my hair in a tshirt and went to bed. The next day when I took off the Tshirt, my hair was about 75% dry. I applied my gel at that point and had completely dry hair in a few hours. I did need to use more product than usual, but the curl definition lasted longer, I had more hold than when I apply gel on wet hair, and it dried faster.

    I hope this works out for at least 2 days...

    I co-washed using Aussie Smooth conditioner, put my hair into 4 sections (to detangle), then added some more of the conditioner as my leave-in.

    I used Herbal Essences Totally Twisted mousse as my styler, DE Almond & Avocado mist as my sealant, and OGX Orchid Oil spray as my finisher. I'm currently air-drying my hair.
