Wash n’ Go: From Sizable Disaster to Breakthrough Glamorous

I’d never done a post on my wash n’ go routine because I’m still perfecting it. Also, I like to try different products, be it something I actually purchased or a sample to use in my routine.

So, this is my first-ever (eek!) post on my wash ‘n go routine. Once I figure out how to mount a camera in my bathroom, I’ll do a video post of this.

Now we know how the game, let’s meet the players:

Of course, we need to see a pic of my hair before:

You see, I don’t mind putting myself on front street for the sake of a demonstration. I should also note I was coming out of another style where I stretched my hair by braiding it so yeah, it’s a bit wild child.

The Routine:

I received a sample of the DevaCurl Bye-Bye Dry No-Poo Decadence in the mail from Sephora. I’ve heard a lot of good things about DevaCurl so I was eager to try.

The Review of DevaCurl:

It has a light scent, almost nonexistent, that’s how light it is. The texture is creamy and smooth. In terms of slip, I felt it was kinda dry. In other words, it felt more like a masque than a cowash. For that purpose, I think DevaCurl is more for Type 2 or Type 3 hair.

I thoroughly wet my hair, saturating it, and then I put the DevaCurl on:

After letting it sit for a few minutes, I rinsed off. Then I put one of my favorite deep conditioners in, Curl Junkie.

I leave the deep conditioner on for a few minutes (5-10, the longer the better). I also use that time to detangle with a comb or a brush.

I’m going to do a separate post on this brush, but believe me when I say it’s the truth! (Click on pic to purchase.)

I thoroughly rinse out and towel-dry (I specifically state that because I know there are methods where people use an old cotton t-shirt or even a blow dryer). I didn’t use any heat on my hair.

Finally, I put on the leave-in and style my hair. The Monoi Oil is a light and fragrant scent, think coconuts (also stating in case you are allergic to coconuts). It’s also pretty thick and goes on white but dries clear. It’ll also last you a while since it comes in a sizable tub. I should also note you can use it as a deep conditioner if you like (and I’ll do a separate review on that).

So let’s review, shall we? I went from:

I hope this helps you!
