My Do: Wash n Go

The other day I realized that I haven't done a post on my fav style, the wash n go. I know it's a simple style, but I thought it may be helpful to someone out there to know how I go about it. How my wash n go differs a bit from others is that I don't use a gel. I've tried using a gel for my wash n go but I find they dry too flat and crunchy and are harder to refresh.

After washing and conditioning (or deep conditioning) my hair in the shower I squeeze some of the access water out of my hair with my hands. I don't use a towel, since it causes frizz. I have on occasion used an old tee, but I find my wash n gos last longer when I apply my product on soaking hair. I section my hair into five sections when applying product. I've found that five sections work best for me since I have bangs, the last section I apply product to is the top of my head and my bangs. The other four sections are two at the nape and one on each side of my hair. I use as much product (leave in conditioner) as I feel is necessary using my fingers to distribute the product. I focus on the ends of my hair the most because they are the oldest part of the hair and need extra love. I also make sure to get a good amount of product on the hair close to the scalp as that hair easily gets missed and then frizzed up.

After applying product I part my hair. I mostly wear a side part, but at times I do a centered part. Then I take a little oil on my hands and scrunch it in to the ends of my hair. If I'm going to diffuse my hair I always use grapeseed oil since it's a natural heat protectant. If I'm not diffusing I let it air dry (for hours). When my hair is dry I generally think it's too flat so I puff it out. I usually put some pomade or oil on my hands when doing this so I don't cause unnecessary frizz. I crunch and fluff, usually holding my head upside down until I feel satisfied with the result. That's it! My wash n go! :) 
How do you do your wash n gos?
