Fresh cut. Full shrinkage. #4c 😉
Today, I did yet another cut on Ms. Fro! I told ya'll I was gonna be cutting often during this shedding nonsense I'm going through lol. But I had to even things up and wanted to go even shorter in the back this time out of curiosity. This is an unstretched wash and go (other than the very top... I stretched that a little.) As far as length, my hair on the very back is about 7 inches long now and it gradually get longer as you move toward the top... so yeah I've been at it with the scissors lol. I used @aussiehair Miraculously Smooth Conditioner as a leave in, @ecoco_beauty Argan Oil Gel and @oyinhandmade Burnt Sugar Pomade to define and shine my coils. 😉 I'll be 4 years natural on the 5th and this cut was a nice way to add some oomph and boost my mood about Ms. Fro's current state. ☺️ #keepmovingforward

Recently, I've been playing around with my huge jar of Eco Styler Argan Oil Styling Gel for my wash and go styling. I usually don't reach for gel when I'm doing a wash and go since my hair tends to need as much moisture as possible... especially in its shrunken state. However, I was curious to see how my hair would respond at this point in my journey using this gel for a wash and go.
Eco Styler gel is known to not get along with many other creamy products due to the risk of flaking and poor absorption... but I decided to try it with my avocado butter to see what would happen. I knew there was a chance I could end up with a head full of dry hair lol, but thankfully, that wasn't the case! Of course, I had to share with you exactly how it went. ;)
In this video, I share how I achieve a defined unstretched wash and go using Eco Styler Gel and Avocado Butter! I hope it helps! (BTW, I recorded this video when the sun was going down so, excuse my lighting shifts at times.) Gotta love natural light! ;)

I'm trying something new with my wash and go. I did the sort of shingle/smooth method with my Dr. Adorable avocado butter (Ebay) and Argan Oil Eco Syler Gel. I'm doing a fully shrunken wash and go. Let's see how this turns out! Pray for me y'all lol! I'm expecting crunch!
I'll post the results. :D

Aight I'm done! It took 20-30 minutes (I lost track of time lol!) on the cool setting
(which is actually a warm setting) on high speed to dry my hair 99 percent! My
hair was VERY VERY smushed from the dryer lol! But I was able to finger fluff it
like normal. The product combo worked great! I'm out to get Supa Gabe!
BTW, don't mind the fact that I keep rockin this sweater lol!!! Hey it happens! :)
Alright, I'm sort of kicking myself for not realizing I had a GREAT detangler on hand in my stash! I have been searching forever since the formula change of Tresemme Naturals occurred. Nothing really detangled my hair as well as that conditioner until now. Enter Eden Body Works All Natural Cleansing Cowash! The funny thing is that I have been using this for a lonnnng time now! I just never used it to "break down" my wash and gos prior to cowashing lol. This stuff works awesome for me both as a cowash and now as a detangler. :D
From this, I learned to shop my stash every now and then. Sometimes there may be a product in there that can be used in different ways and in turn, save me the headache of trying to find other products to help me out.
This is a true wash n go. On cowashed, non combed, wet hair, I scrunched in this order: Avocado Oil, SM Curl and Shine Conditioner, SM Curling Gel Souffle, and spritzed about 30 sprays of SM Hold and Shine Moisture Mist. (30 sounds like a lot lol but some sprays were lighter than others.) I sat under the dryer (low setting) til my hair was 95 percent dry. I did not stretch my hair at all. I just gently lifted with my fingers.
This is my FAVORITE full shrinkage wash n go yet. :)
The Headbands I got are from Dollar General ($3 each) and they are flexible. (They have a gentle wire in them.) I hope they have more colors!
Here is my 1st stretched wash & go done with Giovanni Direct Leave In! Diggin' it!!!
