Wash and Go's

queenjqueenj Registered Users Posts: 45
Since its winter, I don't want to do wash and go's since I'll be leaving the house with a wet hair. Plus I think wash and go's causes tangles in my hair. So, I've been stretching my hair into an afro ever since I took out my braids. Is there any hairstyles other than an afro or a wash and go I could try? I'm kind of new to natural hair care so I would apprectiate any suggestions.

    For the past 3 weeks, I have been wearing my hair in small individual plaits. I plaited it about halfway and left the rest loose and curly. Each morning I would put kbb hair milk on to moisturize. this let me wear my hair curly and avoid tangles. i have pictures in my fotki.

    I've been wearing braidouts since last September and I've seen a big difference in the health of my hair! This is what I do:

    I shampoo once per week with a non-sulfate shampoo and I follow with a deep conditioner for 1 hour. Once I rinse out the deep conditioner, I apply Afrodetangler and Qhemet Biologics Amla and Olive Heavy Cream to each section of hair as I detangle. I set my hair in individual braids all over my head (I don't part, I just grab sections and braid all the way to the end). Once my entire head is braided, I cover the braids with Hairveda CoCasta Shikakai Oil to seal in the moisture. I wear a satin bonnet on my hair at night and over my hair during the day when it's covered with a crocheted hat (tam) to protect from the cold air. After 3-5 days, I unbraid my hair and gently separate each section to create a braidout style. I can usually wear it like that until it's wash-day again. Check out my fotki to see the end result...

    Everytime I try to do a braid out, it dosen't come out the best. Do you do them small ? Or it dosent mater what size I do them.

    the 2 bottom rows in the back are braided down, but the rest are just plaits.
