My First Wash-N-Go

Hi all!

Yuck, it's Monday. -_-

Today was the first day since I cut my remaining relaxed ends off that I wore my hair out fresh from the shower! I guess it's not a 100% true Wash-n-Go (WNG) because I do have some Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In conditioning treatment and some IC Fantasia gel as well, and thennnn..I slapped  on a headband. But it's as true of a WNG in a sense that I didn't set my hair last night to wear it out today. (That's something I can't wait to experiment with though!!)

Anyway..all I can say is..shrinkage is a muthaaaa! LOL!
Here's what my hair looked like today as I wore it out:

It's a cute, short little fro....that makes me feel like my hair grows very slow! lol. 
BUT, here's what I actually have to show for these past 2 years:
HUGE difference!!! It's cetainly past my shoulders and almost down to my bra.
 Again- shrinkage is a mutha! Ha! And patience is a that I'll need for my curls to get this long unstretched.

Here's a couple close-ups of my natural pattern:

I definitely still want to play with different methods to really make my curls pop with definition.

That's all for now! 
Have a great week!


  1. What do you wash your hair with and do you use a leave in conditioner?

    1. Right now I'm washing with Organix Shea Butter Shampoo and Coconut Milk conditioner. The leave in I use is Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in treatment. It leaves my hair pretty soft, but I'd like to find something else because now that I'm playing with more wash-and-go's sometimes I miss white blobs of the leave-in at the back of my hair.
