My Second Attempt

First, let me begin by saying that my computer is giving me trouble again. I am unable to connect to internet which seriously affects my ability to blog! :-( So please...work with me. I'm trying my best to get around to every comment and still visit blogs like I would normally...it just might take me a little longer. Sounds like it might be time for another computer, right?! LOL

Now, back to the regular schedule.

Even though I didn't really like it the last time, I tried the wash and go again.

I needed to wash my hair and things have been really busy lately with all that's going on, so I decided to give this wash and go a second try. I had some new products I wanted to try too which was also a driving force behind wanting to try the wash and go again (even thought I HATE the shrinkage I get).

This time around here are the products I used:
  • Design Essentials Curl Cleanser Sulfate Free Shampoo
  • Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner
  • Design Essentials Daily Moisturizing Lotion
  • Influance's Natural Oil
  • Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
  • Design Essentials Natural Defining Crème Gel
I followed the same steps as last time. I washed and deep conditioned my hair. Then I parted my hair into six sections. I applied the moisturizer and the oil to preserve and retain moisture. Then I applied the smoothie and defining crème gel. Here are the results...right - wet and left - dry:

Even though I never like the results of wash and go's...between the two times I tried it, I liked the results I got the last time a lot better. My hair was more defined than it was during this trial. The new product I wanted to try was the Curls Unleashed (Organic Root Stimulator) Second Chance Curl Refresher. I thought maybe this product could do something to make my wash and go's more appealing to me. The bottom line is...it didn't! I got the same effect from that product as I would have gotten from just adding water or a moisturizer to my hair. Lesson learned!

I've definitely learned a lot of lessons about my hair in this month of having to do it myself and I'm still learning. We'll just have to see where this journey takes me.

  1. I really like it! I don't typically do wash and go's for the same reason. Shrinkage is a beast!


What are you thoughts?!
