Wash And Go, To Grow And To Dazzle 2020 Challenge

I like your hair in all it’s variations and I definitely don’t think the top left looks like a wet dog- have you every styled it that way, but with a side part?
LHFC has blogs?
Yep, there are blogs on here. It states awaiting for approval before being displayed publicly. I’m just using it as a place to hold ideas and not bombard this thread too much.Lol

Thanks, but the side part creates the usual struggle. One side is up while the other side is down. Even though my density isn’t necessarily low, it sure does not look like I have much hair on my head when heavily gelled.

Basically, my goal is to get my hair to a state where I can bring out my curl pattern without the use of heavy gels. The curls are there before my detangling sessions. It’s only after the brushing do I have issues with getting the curls back. I’m typically using the heavy gels to regain my curls.

Lou said that I could text her if I needed to ask another question or so. I just realized I forgot one of the most important questions. How am I to physically apply the leave-in? This seems simple but it’s not.

Currently, I’m doing the smooth and rake method. This works great with heavy based products to bring out the curl pattern. With lightweight products, the raking action creates undefined frizz. To compensate, I’ve been loading on the products. This starts the cycle of white coated hair and product flaking.

I wonder if she is going to say to do smoothing alone like the prayer hand method. If so, this is really going to be a challenge. I’m so slow with this process.

Here is a picture of the curl gel when I experimented with doing the prayer hands method. I had to be more diligent, but my hair came out glossy and defined. I know already. The middle part isn’t it, but my hair naturally parts that way.

For my maintenance cut I decided to just do the cut. The cut is $175 and cut and style is $300. Last time her styling was beautiful, but it only lasted for 3 days. That’s not worth $125.
plus my appointment is Sunday night and I’ll want to get home.
Last time, did she style first and then later cut? Do you think this will result in a more tailored cut since it will be your styling?

I colored my hair tonight. And I feel really good about my hair. I usually color over two days. I wash and condition on day 1, let it dry and then color the next. I didn't feel up to that so I did it all today. I clarified which I always do before I color. I followed that with Elucence moisturizing shampooe and conditioned with a conditioner I picked up from one of the grocery stores. I put on a turban and let my hair dry a bit.

After about 20 minutes I put in the color and let it sit for about 45 minutes. I rinsed and used the Madison Reed shampoo and conditioner that is for color treated hair. I love this shampoo and conditioner. It is expensive but I don't see myself being without it. They make my hair feel so luscious. After I rinsed out the conditioner, I soaked my hair with water and then I took 1 to 2 pumps of UFD and applied it randomly in sections.

I knew I wasn't going to do a wash and go but I did want to put my gel on tonight so I can be ready to do 2 strands tomorrow.

It was a good preview of how my hair has grown and how my hair may potentially look in November when I get it done.

It is starting to move towards my ears. I will definitely need some type of shape in the Spring to wear it out.

But for now I put it in big twist to get me through the day tomorrow.
I’m crossing my finger and hoping you’ll be at your ideal length come spring.

Will your two strand twist be the style or a base for a twist out? Or both?

That’s so interesting that your hair has flexibility after using UFD like a leave-in.

Im going to tell my aunt about the Maddison Reed products. She likes to color at home. She said that she wanted to upgrade from Dark and Lovely.

I'm wearing my 2 strands as a style. I'm lazy and don't want to have to keep up with my hair during the week.

Since I'm only using 1 gel, I don't usually get much hold. It takes about 3 days before my twist firm up. My twist are still soaking wet from last night even after sleeping in a microfiber cap.

The Madison Reed is expensive so prepare here for that. I chose it because it has better ingredients than others on the market and it leaves my hair feeling good. I also love this Palermo black color they have.

I washed my hair today. My curls were so gooey after going outside in the humidity. I tried to salvage it with a puff but decided to do a quick wash day.

I used ORS max moisture shampoo 2x and followed up with ORS Hair repair conditioner.

I thoroughly towel tried my hair with my evolve hair drying tee.

Then I used Camille rose coconut water leave in and followed up with Africa's best moisture miracle curl defining gel. I used the rake and smooth method making sure everything was smooth before going to another section.

Then I diffused with my dyson dryer for about 15 minutes and airdried the rest of the way. Total time it took me from start to finish was one hour.

I love the results

IMG_8379_copy_1459x1094.jpg

I noticed my hair looks more defined by using the rake and smooth method. I just need this to last till my next wash day. I put my hair up in small pineapples to help preserve the curls. I do not know if it will help or hurt. Pineapples worked with the last wash and go but I think it's because I shingled my hair.

So far my hair is slightly firm with good hold, not tacky and no flakes. This seems like a good combination!

That combo really stretched out your curls. I see way more hang time. Hopefully it lasts.

I know that lazy feeling. I’m trying to push through it.

See UFD hold so much moisture. That’s partly why I’m having a difficult relationship with it.

Palermo black is exactly what she is looking for. Anything comparable until I make an order for it?

I’m glad you all aren’t tired and annoyed by me…yet. Lol

For the most part, I think I’ve mastered the understand of the BGC method of a wng. I can recreate the styling technique when using any heavy weighted moisturizing gel. I saturate my hair with water and product. Then style by smoothing, raking and head shaking. Lastly sit under a hooded dryer, and use a Dyson for lift and curl separation.

Ok, so Lou’s method is a bit on the polar opposite side. Convenience and longevity of style are not necessarily factors. She really does tailor routines and products to each person. I’ve watched a few vids of people who’ve gone to Lou. Each person was doing something different. I just knew she was going to suggest that Mizani leave-in cream to me but nope.

So i can use whatever products I like as long as they seem to work for me. For example, I could stick with pattern beauty if I like the results of the products. She gave me many options of routines I could do to achieve my soft defined curls. At minimum, I would need to cleanse my hair every 3 days no matter what. Also, clarify my scalp every two weeks or when I can scratch off buildup. I could simply use leave-in, styling products and surprisingly nothing at all if I want to (not necessarily recommended though.)

The items needed
-shampoo to clarify
-cleansing conditioner
-heavy conditioner like deep conditioner/mask
-light weight conditioner
-leave-in
-styler (optional)
-detangling tool like wet brush

After talking with her and rewatching her videos, it requires a person to become intimate with their own curls. Hair being saturated with water and smoothing out hair is key. Each step of the CCS should produced the desired look. So curls definition should be popping from the initial water rinse to the styling.

So she gave me free reign with cleansers, conditioners, and leave-ins. She also told me ways I could use what I already have. She did give options for stylers because the weight and heaviness of the product does matter. Without me even mentioning it, she told me I should probably avoid UFD and any custards. Those are my babies when it comes to shine, but I agree they are too heavy.

These are my styler recommendations but I can still use whatever I want. I was told Ouidad Curl Quencher Curl Cream, Quidad Curl Quencher Gel and Design Essentials Mousse. This is the first mousse where I see the directions say to put it on wet hair.

I’ll update with the recommended routine options.

@DVAntDany I love that you are learning (and sharing) from a range of stylists.
Lou’s method definitely seems like a lot more work, but I guess if you just use one styler and air dry maybe it can become relatively quick. I used to wash 2x a week, but then I got a bit lazy and I’m back to 1x a week.

I can’t wait to hear how long Lou’s technique takes you compared to BGC

I don't know of anything comparable. Everything off the shelf dried my hair out. I tried e-salon before Madison Reed. It is a demi-permanent. It was working out OK until they changed the formulation and made it thicker. My hair is low porosity and doesn't absorb larger particles. After they changed the formulation it acted more like a semi-permanent than a demi so I wasn't able to use it anymore. That is why I ended up trying the Madison Reed.

I know you didn't ask all of that (lol)

I think its all of the raking and smoothing that I did to give me a more elongated look. This wash n go is not going to last past 3 days though which is ok for me. It flaked a little bit but nothing horrendous like the big green flakes I had a few weeks ago. The pineapples kind of stretched my hair in a funny way that didn't look good the next day. I think shingling provides a more lasting wash n go than raking and smoothing and is easier for me to preserve. I think I might shingle on my main wash day and get 4-5 day hair and then do a mid week wash and rake and smooth for the rest of the week until the main washday comes around again.

I haven’t kept up with this thread but I’m still in the wash and go bandwagon with my tight coily fro. Lately I’ve been lazy and doing everything in the shower, which gives me a fro with frizzy coiled ends. I like the look because I desperately need the volume for my face shape.

I went on a beach vacation last month and it was the first time I ever went on a swim trip without first twisting up my hair. I was scared I would get serious tangles from my hair floating wile in the sea, but I didn’t. I also didn’t even bother using gel for wash n goes because I forgot to bring it. My hair had no definition so I just wore puffs everyday around the resort. It was freeing to not be so scared of wondering how I could maintain my hair while on vacation. My hair has never been more easily managed and I don’t know why I didn’t think it could be this easy.

How long are people spending wetting their hair before shampooing? First a disclaimer: I don't do my hair in the shower .

So today I spent a full 3 minutes just getting my hair wet. I typically only do about a minute. Also since I can't stand water dripping down my face when I'm styling I squeeze a fair amount of water out of my hair before doing my styling and then I use my mister bottle to rewet my hair. I know, sounds counter productive but having to wipe my face off every 10 seconds drives me insane. Anywho, I did that today, spray a bit more water than usual and squeezed each section before adding product. Used Curly Magic and CR Mousse for my combo.

Ya'll my hair is soft yet defined as heck. Almost as if I just came from a salon visit. I'm not sure if it was spending more time wetting my hair, spraying more water before apply curly magic or the combination of both.

Now I know by Monday or Tuesday this will probably be in a puff but I'm quite pleased with myself.

This routine is suppose to bring forth maximum curl definition via wash n go without the aid of heavy products or one's with an apparent cast. I am told the more I do it, the stronger my curl definition will show without product. She didn't necessarily tell me how to start day 1, but I'm going to begin it from the shampoo day. I am piecing together what she told me along with my observation of her techniques in her videos. I want to emphasis that this info is going to be kinda long. I think implementing the routine won't be too complicated though.

Day 1
She suggests saturating the hair fully with water. Smooth out strands and gently remove shed hair. Im assuming from our convo and watching videos that if my hair is not looking defined, then my hair is not fully saturated. I am not to starting shampooing until I get the curls popping. Then coat the ends in conditioner and clarify the scalp. Really get in there and clean the scalp. She uses a small applicator bottle to get to the scalp. If the hair has been properly rinsed with water, I wont need to do multiple shampoos on the hair. From watching the videos, she pulls the shampoo through the coated strands and then rinses it out. Seems like she is treating the hair like a fabric. Remove most of the grime first and the cleanser will work better with less effort. Also, she is keen on protecting the ends since they are the most delicate. I'm just going to do a full on clarify for my first day. Beyond this day, I will do it her way. Another thing, she said to clarify the scalp, but did not mention specifically using a clarifying shampoo. I'm just going to use common sense here.

From, there I am to condition my hair twice. I will first use a heavy conditioner While watching videos she pats the conditioner on to the ends first. Then she gradually makes her way up the strand. During this step, I am to really smooth the conditioner in. After rinsing conditioner #1, I follow it with conditioner #2. The second conditioner is an easy rinse light conditioner. Once again smooth the conditioner in. From our convo, I believe I am suppose to smooth, detangle and go back and smooth again. Then rinse it all out. I must rewatch her videos to see the process. Examples of conditioners would be Pattern Beauty Intensive or Heavy for heavy conditioner and AG Boost for light conditioner.

Lastly, I put in leave-in, styler, or nothing at all. The leave-in is not limited to creams and lotions. It can also be a spray leave-in if I want. With leave-in or styler I must place it on wet hair. I should glide it over my strands gently. If the product is not soaking in and leaves strong white coating, then I am using too much product. It's best that I air dry. If drying tools are needed, I am to use lowest heat setting or cool. She has 2 videos of adding leave-in to her son's hair. Will also need to rewatch for this. For now, my main product will be my leave-in instead of styler. Also when using a styler, she prefers a leave-in underneath.

I do this routine every 2 weeks or when I can feel buildup on my scalp. Which ever comes first.

Between Cleansing Days
Option #1 spritz hair with water
Option #2 water rinse hair and put in leave-in
Option #3 water rinse hair, condition, and put in leave-in
I do not believe that I am to use a detangling tool for these days.

Every 3rd Day Cowash Hair
Wash my hair and scalp with a cleansing conditioner. Can mix half and half shampoo with conditioner to create this if necessary. Then condition hair twice. Once with heavy conditioner followed by light conditioner. Then use leave-in or styler. I think Innersense Hydrating Cream Hairbath and Bread Hair Wash are both quite moisturizing and can probably work just fine. On my last CIK stylist visit, I was told I could use the Innersense Hydrating Hairbath as my main shampoo for my 2 to 3 times per week cleansing sessions. I then can use AG Balance once a month and clarify as need probably around 6 to 8 weeks.

For Next Month I Am To Deep Condition Once A Week (Example on a Friday)
This is to counteract any potential issues like dehydration I may have acquired by using excessive indirect heat. I am to use a deep conditioner or mask. Follow the directions, put on a processing cap and do not apply heat. I am to do this once a week for a month. Afterwards, do it twice a month or once a month. I assume it doesn't matter if I do this on a co-wash day or a shampoo day. Most deep conditioners are balanced. So use which ever I like.

If I Want To Give Myself A Little Break (Example for the Weekend)
This is a day that I use an actual styler instead of just leave-in. Do this on Friday (my deep conditioning day) and keep style in Saturday and Sunday. Then go back to usual on Monday. I was suggested to use either of the 2 Ouidad Curl Quencher stylers (cream or gel) or Design Essentials Mousse. Hard Hold and heavy weighted stylers are to be avoided.

What Made Me Bite The Bullet
I decided to do Lou's method because I've seen progress with my experiments. Areas that are hard define like my cowlick temples are usually tufts of undefined fluff. When using light weight stylers and frequent cleansing, those areas turned into perfectly cylindrical beady beads with a silky texture. You know, like looking at the hairline of a young child. My hair has not done that since I was little kid. I also noticed that my spongy areas were also able to achieve more individualized spirals and began to have a silkier quality as well. Basically, those areas looked like that had a smoother surface texture and reflected more shine.

In addition to that, I have had several opportunities to sheer sheep this year. I am disappointed in Aishia's assessment of hair feeling hard like wool aka Burberry coat. She needs to come up with another example to justify hair feeling hard and looking dull. Yes, wool can eventually look like a 30 year old forgotten teddy bear, but it can still feel soft right on the sheep. In fact, the wool on new born lambs feels firmer than the wool on adult sheep. Once the matted stuff is cut off, the wool looks and feels like fleece. I have sheep bread for meat. I can only imagine how much softer the wool would be on a Merino sheep.

The process to create itchy hard wool jackets is to damage the coarse wool strands. They first boil the wool for hours in effort to remove the lanolin. When the coarse cuticles become damaged they lift and can scratch the skin when worn as clothing. That's why vinegar washes and using actual conditioner are suggested to reduce itchiness and stiffness of wool. Its to help seal down that damage cuticle. Also, there are various sheep with different textures. To say hair is akin to a Burberry coat while knowing what I know pisses me off. So it's also the little things that make me want to try a different process with a different philosophy.

I’ve been using olaplex on the bottom half of hair every week before I wash it and this little 3 oz bottle has lasted surprising long. At least 12 uses. I wonder if I’m not using enough..,.

Thank you so much for this. I'm thinking of meeting with LouLou too.. especially now that I know she provides videos.

Just wondering, which experiments did you do to help you decide to do this routine?

I was looking at pictures from last year and this cut that I got in July made a huge difference in how my hair looks. Even when I did a good job applying products and defining my hair, it looked unkempt before I got this cut.
What ever cut BGC gave me when I was a hair model in Feb 2020 did NOT grow out well. I was looking at pictures from oct 2020 and my hair already looked scraggly. I feel like BGC rushed the work when I was a mode and I paid $125 for the experience. :-(

or maybe the problem was that they cut on their styling and I never style my hair with elongated curls. And even when they styled my hair with the elongated curls after a day or 2 my hair starts to shrink to it’s more natural curls and their cut look ragged.
