    Great video. Will try it next time I do my WNG.

  • Godsfavr says:

    All I do is sleep in my satin cap, mist in the morning and moisturize. I get 3-4 days out of my wash and goes.

  • Leslie says:

    Thank you FoxyMochaCleopatra for sharing this technique. Your curls rock! I'd like to try this and I'd like to know what product you're using to spray your ends.

    This wouldn't never work with my hair. I think I'm missing something. I didn't see her actually wash her hair. What is she spraying on it? Anyway, I hope it works for someone else!

    Love it!!

    OMG! I wondered what I would do when it got longer…thank you for this. My hair texture isn't as thick but my curl is very similar. I could use this styling on the front, top and sides of my hair at this point. FoxyMochaCleopatra thank you. Your hair looks so pretty. I'm buying some elastic bands tomorrow. I saw the ones without the little metal pieces last weekend at RiteAid. WOOOOO!

    Great results! I'd also like to know what moisturizer was used on the ends? I would LOVE to rock wash-n-go's more, but my shrinkage is super-crazy-ridiculus! This method might help, so I'll try it soon!

  • Dana says:

    What moisturizer are you spraying on your ends?

    I found it was best for me to add a plastic shower cap and sleep, it makes the hair moist and in the am I spray and shake. I can wear it for a week

  • Charmed Muggle says:

    Wow, my hair would be a hot frizzy mess with all that manipulation & it seems like a lot to do the night before! No thank you! I re-do my hair-type-3/4 WNG everyday, but now that it is cold & my hair is at mid-length (same length as video above), I simply spritz my hair, shake & go. I saw the video below a year ago when I had super short hair & now my hair is long enough to do this – it works! So easy!

  • CocoDreamee says:

    Wow!! This video is very impressive but….when I do a wash and go it is shrinkage galore!! Hers looked like it started off a little stretched, I have the same exact texture, what I am I missing?? I have a little below shoulder length hair when stretched in the back, and mid neck when stretched on the sides. For wash and go's aren't we still do a quick condish in shower, rinse, wring hair, throw in some leave in condish, slather on product of choice and fluff?? Help, I love other peoples wash and go's but never do them anymore because shrinkage is insane…feel free to shoot me an email if you're feeling extra generous (angelbaby8932001 using gmail).

  • Sequitta says:

    This seems like a great method! I'm scared to try it though because anytime I spray anything into my hair, let the shrinkage begin!

  • Ings says:

    Damn, why didn't see this last night?!
    Her method works !!

    Hello FoxyMochaCloepatra!

    Nice! What do you use to define your curls? They are poppin'! I have a simliar texture to yours.

  • T♡Ni says:

    This is a great idea, i cant wait to try this in a few days. With my wash n go's i would usually style my hair by rewetting my hair everyday.

  • Dana says:

    I wish I would have known about this method when my hair was shorter. It's much longer and maintaining a wash 'n go is more difficult b/c the smallest amount of manipulation will cause frizz. I'll surely give this a try when I go back to my wash 'n go for spring/summer.

    This is the same method I use and my hair is significantly longer so this will continue to work as your hair grows out. After a few days, my hair is stretched enough to style it into a big fluffy 'fro. At that point, I pineapple my hair into a high bun at night and cover with a satin bonnet. I can go a least 3 more days like that.

  • MesaIsaGoddess says:

    I highly doubt I would be capable of doing this. I usually catch a bad case of the frizzies.

    This seems like a lot of trouble for a wash 'n "go."

    Her hair looks exactly like mine. Color and all 🙂 For my WNGs, I fluff, spray with water, and then moisturizer. I do not touch it after that. It springs to life as it dries.
