I have many different "wash and go" methods for my "natural hair." In-fact, I usually never do a wash and go the same way twice, but this has got to be one of my favorite methods! Perfect for the winter season, but can be used throughout the year, this "wash and go" stretches out my hair, defines my curls, and best of all, I get the leave the house with dry hair; talk about overcoming your shrinkage issues! No styling products or curling creams necessary! Hair is left soft, shiny, stretched, and manageable! Hope this helps!
