Am I the only (black) girl with kinky-curly hair who took a thousand tries to get a good wash and go? My hair is always staging some sort of revolution. I mean, I don't go outside looking crazy. I just want my hair to do exactly what I want it to do, when I want it to do it. Is that really too much to ask? Well, today (last night, really), I think I finally got it right.

1. I did a co-wash using Naptural85's method:

2. Used a tiny bit of LHCD-TV's gel mix (start at the 2:48 mark):

3. Finally, banding each medium size section (no twists) per NaturalMe4C's banding method:

Okay, I'm sure some people will quibble with me that this is not an actual wash and "go." But, for those folks I say, "You don't know my struggle." Trust me when I say this is the only way I can have a functional style (sans twist out, braid out, etc.) with my regular curls that looks fly.

I would show you a picture, but I like to remain mysterious. You'll just have to trust me that I look really great. Also, I'm really happy I have something that will last a week without me re-twisting because I always have to re-twist (I live a sad life of woe).

Hair Success!
