My everyday 4B/4C hair routine is a wash ‘n go because, unsurprisingly, my hair is still not long enough for a puff. The wash ‘n go makes my hair moisturized and ready to take on the day.

Although the wash ‘n go can lack on the “and go”, it typically takes 30 minutes to complete this style. All you need is a spray bottle with water, Argan Oil moisturizer and a mix of the Cantu coconut curling cream and ECO Styler Gel.

I always start the wash ‘n go on damp, moisturized hair. I use the water bottle to dampen my hair and massage in a generous amount of moisturizer. Since my hair is only about 1-2 inches long stretched, I scoop curling cream into my hand and massage into my coils in a circular motion. This encourages the coils to spiral.

Add personal style with flat twists, headbands, and other hair accessories.

If pieces are frizzing,  I individually coil the strands using my fingers. If the piece continues to frizz, I’ll exchange the curling cream for the gel to give more holding power.

I’ve yet to master styling the front, so I like to add a simple flat. Other times, I add a statement headband. Typically, I forgo slicking down my edges because my hair is just so thick! However, I’ve been loving the Style Booster Edge Factor when I do. It smells great and doesn’t flake.

I protect the style at night with a bonnet and satin pillow which helps the style last up to 4 days. In the morning, spritz with water and add moisturizer – good to go! To make the style last a full week, add in a steam treatment.
