I’ve worn my hair natural now for the last 9 years! While I’ve had some really beautiful braid-out styles, my hair has always looked best in a wash and go style and it’s been really easy for me to style and maintain. As many of you know, I cut my hair last November so I wanted to share how to do a wash and go on short natural hair. I always get DMs about what products I use as well so I wanted to share that with you too.

Tutorial Video

The easiest way for me to share how to do a wash and go on short natural hair was to create a video tutorial. You can view it here! Remember to always start with soaking wet hair.

This style usually lasts for five to seven days and I refresh it every other day. I preserve it by sleeping on a satin pillowcase. I’ve found that it’s better to refresh my curls using the same product I styled it with and fluffing it with an afro pick like this one. You can also use a satin scarf or bonnet at night, it’s your choice but the satin pillowcase like this one works best for me.
