7 Hair Products That'll Give You the Best Wash and Go of Your Life
No one said perfecting a wash and go was easy, but boy, is it a satisfying feeling once you do. The thing about wash and gos is that, while they're one of the most popular styling methods in the natural-hair community, they can sometimes be a little tricky to pull off. That's because, contrary to what the name suggests, there's a lot more to it than just . . . well, washing and going.
For most of us, wearing a wash and go doesn't mean submerging your hair in water and wearing your freshly washed curls out just as they are, but rather going through a whole product-filled routine to ensure your curls will still look moisturized, bouncy, and defined by the end of the day. If you're still trying to perfect your wash-and-go routine, read ahead for some of our favorite products that are sure to keep your hair frizz-free and in place.
