Summer Staples

Post by blkbeauty2010 on 25th March 2011, 12:27 am

Okay curlies... Spring is definately in the air (at least here and Houston) which means wash-n-go season is here or just around the corner. During this time last year I was roller setting and didn't get the chance to play around with a wash-n-go, but I AM ITCHIN to throw some ish in my hair "whip it back n forth" like Willow and go about your day. Please, please, please, scratch my PJ itch and dish your favorite wash-n-go product AND/OR what you want to try this year

Hi blkbeauty2010! I love your profile pic. Your hair is simply gorgeous! For wngs, I have used KCCC, ecostyler oo gel, and Darcy's Coiling Jelly. Out of those 3, Darcy's is my favorite because it performs just as well as KCCC and mixes well with other products. I just ordered Donna Marie's Miracurl and Dream Curling Cream and they're on their way woot! ! I've heard lots of good things about them and they were on sale (always a +). I'll let you know how they work out.

This is a great post because I'm curious to know what products to use. I've been wanting to try a wng but like you, don't know what products to try. I was thinking about trying kinky curtly too. In also planned on using miss Jessie just because I have it.

This summer I will be experimenting to find out what gives me the best definition with washNgo's. I will try conditioner only, KCCC, and Uncle Funky's Daughter Curly Magic.

I use the KKKK for my wngs. I did one the other day and kinda used way to much product so just be careful if you use the KKKK. I would have posted a pic but it was so stiff my hair did not hardly move so you can imagine what it looked like Laughing

I was just thinking the same thing, wondering how and what I will add to my summer hair regimen. @Blkbeauty2010, I see you're in Houston too, so you know we gotta brace ourselves for this humidity! (SMH! I'm sooo dreading that!) I would like to do some more experimenting with wash & go's...when I first went natural, I did them a lot, but now, not so much! I mostly rock twist outs because I don't get so much shrinkage from it and it shows my length better. I've heard great things about Uncle Funky's Daughter Curly Magic. I've been meaning to get some of it for the longest, but I think i will add it to my stash to try out and master the wash n go style.

This summer definitely wash n gos. I like to spray a bit of water in my hair, use garner frutis leave in conditioner with some olive oil to seal the moisture. finishing it off with a cute big flower or a simple headband. If I want more moisture or curl definition, I'll add some hydrathermal hair lotion and some curl activating gel, definitely going to use more of KCC.

@ Natural 83, it took everything in me not to go to the UFD Salon and pick it up this weekend. I ended up down the street at Sallys getting Argan oil curling cream and Olive Oil Hair Pudding. Well see how it goes though. I know what you mean about the humidity thats why i want to master a wng so i dont have to feel like im wasting time and products on twist outs that look a hot mess after walking across the parking lot to my car.
