wash and go and white hair

alsaxonalsaxon Posts: 734Registered Users
Okay ladies, for those of you who do wash and goes how do you get rid of the white product without having to plop, diffuse or sit under the dryer. It's called a wash and GO but really this doesn't seem like much of a quick style especially if your hair dries slowly...whatever you use will show up on the hair until it dries.

Liquid leave in's like greg juice are perfect because they are clear but do nothing for hold or definition so this isn't really ideal for a wash and go.

Anyone have a quick way to dry your leave in or styler of choice without disturbing the curl.

    White product? Either your products don't interact well, or you've used too much of one. Whenever the latter happens (i.e: when I use creamier products like CJ CCCC), I have to smooth my hair down btwn my fingers to get as much of the excess cream out before adding more water by spraying my hair down. Then I diffuse.

    In this weather, I cannot imagine anyone NOT diffusing to set the curl bc the cold simply wont help you. No matter the weather, I believe diffusion of at least the canopy and outerlayers should be done for optimal frizz prevention. The inner layers usually always take hours to days to dry for most and that's something readily accepted by most, but the 15-20 mins used to set the style is worth it.

    It's your products reacting...if you use the right products, this will not happen, or if your hair is white, it will only be that way for like 10 minutes while the product settles in. It takes ALL DAY for my hair to dry, so if my hair stayed white until it dried, wash n gos would not be an option for me, and they are my staple style. I do not diffuse or plop. Here are some combos that work well:

    Oyin Honey Hemp + KCCC
    Donna Marie Cocoa Hemp Buttermilk + Curl Junkie Curl Queen (which has not reacted with any leave-in I use so far)
    Curl Junkie Smoothing Lotion + Curl Junkie Curl Queen
    Donna Marie Dream Curling Creme (alone)

    Other leave-ins that often do not react include Oyin Hair Dew, Curl Junkie Beauticurls Leave-In, and Curl Junkie Curl Rehab (although this reacts sometimes). For me, I've found that the more buttery a LI in, the more chance it has of forming the white clumps.

    Also, if I do get them, I can sometimes make them go away by using a finisher, like Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle or Knotty Girl Leave-In Conditioner, or even smoothing some additional water on top of my hair and shaking it out.

    Today, I used Curl Junkie Smoothing Lotion, Donna Marie Dream Curling Cream, and some Miracurl Curling Gelly on top for extra frizz control and hold. Here's my hair:

    My hair is still really wet in the pic (you can see the light reflecting off of the water), but it's not white at all.

    Anywho, hope that helps some.

    yup, it's just that some products don't play well together or you've used too much. i never diffuse my hair and my go to combo this winter that works well without any white residue is elucence moisture balancing conditioner + catsor oil + a few sprays of kinky curly spiral spritz. interestingly enough elucence + KCCC leaves white residue.

    I agree with the ladies above, your products are probably not playing well together. I use DB creamy condish as my leave-in and Bee Mine Curly Butter as my styler. For the first few minutes it's alittle white, then it goes away when I finger comb for distribution and shake. By the time I leave the house for work the whiteness is gone and it's just damp.

    Hey. I guess I didn't explain myself well. It's not white residue like...its almost like when your hair is wet right out of the shower and you put a leave in on...it's not clear. It looks like cloudy water. I know I'm not doing a good job explaining. It's definitely not an overuse of product...when it dries there is no residue.

    I guess I was trying to see if anyone had any tricks. When I was short my wash and goes took two minutes. Rinse apply product put a towel on for less than a minute and I was out. As it got longer I had to plop longer and this would mess up my curl formation, imo. Eventually instead of plopping I used a paper towel to tap out the non-clear areas (I guess I can try that again).

    I'm not against diffusing but it adds time to the morning routine which is why I posted. I know what to do to get rid of the white. Diffuse or plop but I was just wondering if there were other ideas.

    I stop WNG's because of knots but am thinking of taking them back up.

    U have beautiful hair and yes it does help! My products are not reacting because I only used one. I used BB Frizz Pudding. Nothing under it and nothing on top. After I finished I put my hair and 6 big twists and of course it stayed super wet but made the most beautiful texture but since it was super wet the whitish/gray was still on some strands. Maybe I should have left it out in a fro to dry before posting this. It is possble it would have dried within 10 to 15 minutes. I'm going to try that...maybe I'm jumping the gun.

    BTW my hair hated the Honey Hemp as leave in. OMG!

    Your idea to smooth additional water on top is a good idea!

    Thanks!

    Thank you. I'm only using one product. I think a lot of this has to do with the porosity of my hair. It does not absorb...wants to let nothing in.

    Yeah, I think I may have been a little patient and the product that I used doesn't allow me to dry my hair in big twists like other products. It will never dry.

    Is the first ingredient in that water or a butter?

    If she is talking about the blended beauty curly frizz pudding then i believe the first two ingredients are probably aloe juice and chamomile water.

    that's right but it does have she butter in it so maybe that is causing the whiteness. I try this weekend and see how long the whiteness last if I leave it out. It may not be as big a deal as I'm making it.

    Yeah i remember when BB first became popular a lot of people complained of the whiteness. Might be a porosity issue as you mentioned..i know for me i always put some of the bb product in my hands..emulsify it and then add a little water to my hands.

    I do that with just about every product i use..

    And honestly it is the only thing that makes my hair soft, seriously that's why I'm trying to make it work. I already found out the hard way it does not mix well with certain products!

    i'll try the water trick. I do that with my conditioner and it makes it more slippery. Why that works I don't know.

    I had this same problem when I did wash and gos no matter what products I used. I finally figured out it was a porosity issue. layering a lot of products can be a problem. What I'm doing now is cowash and detangle in the shower. I rinse out the condish then leave my hair in four twists. When I get out the shower, I undo the twists one at at time and put in a small amount of the moisturizer. Then I retwist and go about what I need to do for awile. Typically 15 minutes. I find this gives my hair time to absorb. I Then I go on to a little oil and my styler. Lately I'm using activator gel. My curls look great and no whiteness.:notworthy:
