Wash and Go

Hey guys, today I decided to give my wash and go a try. I couldn't wash my hair in the morning, so I washed it last night, and apllied some Kinky Curly Knot Today and Kinky Curly Curling Custard. I tried Naptural85's method of maintaining her wash and go.

Lets just say it certainly didn't come out like her's LOL. My shrinkage was crazy and my hair was still pretty damp. So I took my blowdrier and started stretching out my curls. This is the result.

Verdict: Hmmm I don't know yet... Perhaps I can find a way to avoid such shrinkage. Now I have to figure out how I'm going to maintain this bad boy until next Thursday!!

I'm so happy that it's springtime now! =) It's my favorite season ( probably because I was born in the spring..but never mind that). What is there not to like about spring ( besides allergies)?
The warmer weather allows us to wear our hair in more out-styles, such as wash and goes, without having to worry about catching a head cold because you walked out the house with wet hair. Also, it's not as humid as the summer, so your hair is less likely to turn into a frizz ball.

I've been trying to tweak my regimen bit by bit so I can achieve the best results with my hair.
Here are some new things I'm trying this spring.
1. Finger detangling - Though every natural doesn't do this, I've heard a lot about the benefits of it, such as more defined curls, more length retention, increase in the thickness of hair...
2. Drying my hair with a T-shirt- I hear that t- shirts cause less frizz
3. Trimming my ends more frequently ( like every six weeks)- If my ends aren't too bad, then I'll just dust.

And I'm going out on a limb and trying to wear more wash and goes... ( Scared look). The reason I don't wear wash and goes like that is because I didn't know how to maintain them. Now that I have done some research, it doesn't hurt to try again. If another girl can do it, I can too!
Here are some pics of my natural texture with conditioner in it.

 I can't wait to cut that color off!!!

My braidout before and after 80 degree weather hits it. ( I'm not complaining)
What changes are you making this spring?
