Later that evening, I wanted to co-wash my hair and re-style the wash n' go which meant re-applying all of the products and waiting for it to dry. Instead, I decided to just kick back and watch Youtube while braiding my hair up for a braid out. I was surprised this morning to see the amount of definition I had. I was also happy with the look of length I got without having to use any heat this time.
There was already plenty of product in my hair from the wash n' go so I just spritzed each section with a little water before braiding it into plaits. I then spritzed a little more water on the ends and twisted with my fingers to get a slight curl. The product in my hair helped with this step. I didn't even have to use a comb or denman brush. I just stretched my hair with my fingers and detangled a little here and there. It was almost too easy!
I'm beginning to see a routine forming here. I can totally see myself wearing my wash n' go's for a few days and then turning them into braid outs when they start to get a little fuzzy. I hope this is the case because I get the feeling my hair needs a more simplified routine and this may be it. What's funny is the fact that this is what I used to do during my first year natural. Now I'm not sure why Iever stopped.
