Wash N Go For 4C Hair

One of the most challenging things for 4C naturals is to accomplish the basic wash n go.

Because of the curlier hair texture, within a matter of hours, the hair is in a shrunken state again, making the appearance of bounce loose curls look like a matted mess of goo!

While it is not always the easy thing for most 4C naturals to attempt a wash n go, it can be done; it just takes a little bit more work.

The following steps will help you in creating a wash n go look for the day. Unlike women with other hair types, 4C hair requires the following:

  • A Wash
  • Leave-in condition
  • Oil
  • Wide tooth comb
  • A light gel
  • A water bottle.

There are basic steps to attempting a wash n go. So it’s definitely a wash but not so much a “go” since you will have to take extra time with the extra products!

  1. Wash your hair. It does not have to be a heavy wash.
  2. Condition your hair with oil or your favorite conditioner and then use a or leave-in conditioner/cream of your choice to seal in moisture.
  3. Section your hair while it is still wet (but not sopping wet.)
  4. Take care to put extra leave-in conditioner/cream and a light gel in each section. Depending on how thick your hair is, you may need to make sub sections in your hair.
  5. Be prepared to re-wet your hair is needed during this process. Just put water in a spray bottle and wet those sections that dried up..
