Hello everyone! I always said that the first thing I was going to do once I got rid of my heat damage was to try a Wash and Go, since it was really the only style I couldn’t achieve while growing out my damaged ends. While I was transitioning, I watched countless YouTube videos about doing Wash and Gos to try to understand how to pull off the style. This past week, it was finally my time to try it! (I actually planned on just doing a twist-out, but my hair was washed, and the conditioner was there, so I figured there was no time like the present!).
