Wash And Go, To Grow And To Dazzle 2020 Challenge

Not loving my WNG at all today, it's frizz city. I am not sure if it's due to the coconut oil prepoo I did this week, I usually never put oils in my hair because they tend to leave frizz, but I thought as a prepoo it would be okay since I cleansed twice with shampoo + condition + DC. Apparently my hair frizzes up anyway even when oil is applied as prepoo. It can't be the humidity in the air since I did my same routine for the last month, and my hair survived the humidity just fine (I live in NC). Oh well, I will stick to buns until midweek wash to redo it. I will probably clarify with Redken cleansing cream to start on a clean slate.

I really hope that after my Deva cut I can let my hair air dry loose and have it look good. To me that would be care free hair. And if I can get 3-4 day hair, I think I will be set.

But I’m afraid that it’s going to take me a awhile to adapt to how big my hair will be. I’m not a fan of huge volume (for me) yet.

I am trying a new combo today, it's an old combo actually that I use to love. Garnier fructis sleek and shine leave in + Garnier Fructis Style Curl Shape Gel. I have to use a lot to remove frizz, but these products are very cheap especially the leave in 2 for about 5$. I am waiting for my hair to dry and see how it turns out.

Is this your first Deva cut? I am very scared to get mine, because they cut the hair on it's curly state which scares the hell out of me lol but I guess for people who wear it curly 90% of the time it makes sense to get it.

This is my first Deva cut. I haven’t straightened my hair in 1.5 years so I’m not too worried about how it will look straight. I always wear it in a bun or curly. As long as I still have enough hair to bun I’ll be ok. But if it looks good air dried without stretching, I’ll be ecstatic.

That sounds like the best fit for you then! I hope it turns out great for you :)

I’m still deciding if I like my Deva cut. It definitely looks better than it did before, but I don’t know if I love it.


She used so many products on my hair
- decadence one conditioner
- heaven in hair deep conditioner
- b’leave-in
- arc angel gel
- supercream styler
- high shine oil

She spent way more time applying product and in much smaller sections than I do.

Next time I wash my hair I will try her method with my products.

While the number of products seems a wee bit much the fact she took a long time applying product in small sections sounds good.

I don't go to a Deva salon but they do cut hair dry and curly and only do wash and gos and I'll be at the shampoo bowl for a miinnuutteee while she rakes through conditioner and styler.

Eta: Actually outside the oil maybe, that seems normal product wise lol. That's very similar to my routine.

I don’t want to wash my hair because I want to see how long it will last after the Deva styling, but I don’t want my first wash post-cut to be on a work day because I have no idea how it will turn out. I guess when it gets too frizzy I’ll have to wear a bun for a few days.

You use styling cream after gel? I never thought to put anything on top of gel.

My hair felt sticky I think the Deva salon used too many products and applied some of them when my hair wasn’t wet enough.

I rewashed today and styled with my products (KCKT & wetline). I did make one change- I applied my gel in much smaller sections and finger curled the hair around my face.

I’m waiting to see how it turns out before I decide if I like the haircut.

Last week's wash n go...
My wash and goes are getting better, more defined, and a little more hang.

I get wig checked every day lol

I'm currently wearing a day 7 wash n go that I don't want to wash out yet because it's so defined, and I'm not 100% sure how I achieved it lolol

Eta, the last pic shows what happens when I get a few days into a wash n go... it turns into a tight globe of hair around my head.../ the second pic is second day hair

Very cute @metro_qt

How do you get 7 day hair???
1. the secret for 7 day hair is you have to be zen with the fact that your hair may shrink up like a poodle (mine) or may get bigger and fluffier as the days go by.

2. my hair has stayed pretty consistent from day 4 to day 7 (hasn't grown or shrunk) because I:

a) wear a modified pineapple each night, and leave the looser hair in front out, and try not to mash it when i'm sleeping

b)the product layering I did last Sunday was IT! my hair loved it: Mielle Organics Gelee first, on wet hair, praying hands, Texture ID raked through, Raking hands, Eco styler gel on top of stubborn areas, finger curl the stubborn areas. the end.

@GettingKinky I added a pic of today's day 7 hair: it still has good definition and nice and fluffy, that's why I don't want to wash it out yet, lol.

Looks great. I know all about the hair globe.

I think my Deva cut achieved my goal. I let my hair air dry loose and I like the shape. Now I just need it to grow.

I hope pineappling tonight doesn’t ruin it. But if it does I know I can go to work with damp hair and it won’t look crazy when it dries. (As long as I spend lots of time applying gel in small sections.)
