    I've been wearing my hair mostly twisted this summer as I try to grow out this tapered cut. I have become the most lazy natural.

    I've been wearing some twists as bangs these past two weeks and I'm about to wash my hair (debating whether to wash as is or untwist).

    If anybody knows of any YouTubers with hair texture similar to mine, can you post them? I have so much trouble finding a hair twin. My hair is more wavy than curly, but it's still very kinky and I have a lot of shrinkage. Usually if I find someone with my curl pattern, their hair is really silky and with looser curls.

    She has a tighter curl pattern but reminds me of your hair

    You're right, her hair does look very similar to mine. Thank you! If you ladies know of anyone else, please share!

    My summer wash n go routine is as minimal as I'm willing to get. KCKT with Eco Olive layered over it gives me definition bounce and movement. I'll be using this routine until the weather turns cold and my hair asks for something else!
    I'm resetting about every 3 days but I will rock the frizz for 5 days or beyond in these dog days of summer.

    Definitely a cousin. I think her hair is less coarse and less dense than mine, but our curl patterns are very similar.

    Really ?!?! I think the coarseness is totally the same. The only real difference to me is the density. Your hair falls thicker on the ends in particular than hers but similar at the roots. Her hair thins out some from the roots down where your roots lay flatter but gets thicker as it goes down. HTMS

    I think you can see it better in this pic. My hair is frizzier and less defined at the top. It's curlier at the ends bc I used my Denman brush. The girl in the video looks like her hair would be defined no matter what kind of styler she used. I would say her hair texture is more silky and mine is more kinky.

    ohhhh okay i see what you mean. It's more cottony whereas hers is more defined. But def close relatives I'd say a sister. Not as distant as a cousin.

    I used Eden BodyWorks Curl Defining Creme for my WNG as I wanted to try a curl defining creme instead of gel. I’ve had this product for over a year. I already didn’t like it for twistoutsand I absolutely hate it for WNGs. I knew that I wouldn’t like it as I was applying it...

    @Coilystep I have a 2 oz sample of the UFD gel... did you use a lot to achieve your WNG?

    I clearly have to redo my hair... it gets worse as the day goes on. Luckily, I’m home today!

    I’m heavy handed so I used about five to six pumps per section. Probably had eight sections totally. I usually have 4 sections then break those into two or three sections. You look like you have a lot of hair you would need more than 2 oz.

    Creams don't really do much for me. I have low porosity hair and creams just kind of sits on top.

    @LovelyRo the only cream styler I have had success with was aphogee curlrific (sp) line and it was just ok I only used it a few times and don't plan to repurchase. If you do a search you could probably find my review with pictures in this thread.

    I’ve tried that line before... I didn’t try the creme styler though... I think I’m going to pass on creme stylers for now.

    You are right... I pulled that little bottle out and laughed... maybe I’ll use it for my WNG low ponytail (only for the part that hangs).

    ETA... thank you!

    I did a wash and go with Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue and Wetline Xtreme. The results were similar to when I used the Eden's naturals cream, but it lasted longer without me having to redo it. I'm on day 8 and I could probably go longer. This might become a staple.

    Though you don't like it by itself, you may can put a gel on top. I find Eden Bodyworks creams (the Curl Defining and the Pudding Soufflé) mix well with EVERY non-natural gel I tried it with. It's the only reason I keep them.

    I'm trying a no gel wash n go today and so far it's a no but I'm committed....and late for work! So cest la vie.
    I used Sally's Textured ID styler and it's giving me big fluffy undefined hair. Clearly my hair is missing that shellacking that it's used to from Eco Styler!
    Oh well today it's big fluffy hair dont care. Imma sweat it out with an after work jog anyway!

    Hey Ladies, had my best wash n go to date using KCKT and KCCC! I've had both these products sitting in my stash awhile and don't know why I've never tried them before but decided to give the combo a go Saturday. I used on soaking wet hair while still in the shower and attached are my results. Had way less shrinkage as well but still a decent amount. Hoping to get at least 3-4 days of wearable hair before having to refresh or convert to something else. For those that use this combo, how do you typically refresh the style without having to completely redo? Thanks!

    I want to know this myself? Because I typical re-do my wash & go after 3-4 days too from using the KKKT & KCCC.

    Excellent results @Daina. I use KCKT under Eco Styler with consistent excellent results. I could easily do a week long wash n go but opt for a cowash on day 3 or 4 cause my hair needs likes and wants it!

    I confess that I just never learned to use KCCC correctly. My hair always turns out greasy, stiff & sticky. Folks stay raving about it though!

    @discodumpling, thanks sis! I was pleasantly surprised to be honest. I finally just decided to see what all the fuss was about. I think the key for me at least was actually following the instructions and for the first time applied all the product in the shower keeping my hair soaking wet throughout. The only thing I would do differently is include an oil to lock in the moisture of the KCKT.

    Gonna try to stay with wash and go's since my hair has been so manageable and I finally have a nice shape where I feel it's wearable.. My hair shrinks like crazy. The sides of my hair are at my jaw but shrinks above my ear. Here's a pic of my hair...I think I'm 4a.

    This thread is very inspirational, I am getting back to hitting the gym and straightening my hair wont cut it anymore, therefore I have been trying to wash'n go my hair lately, and it's a learning curve :D Gel is my best friend with the humid weather. I can't get a style to last more than three days though which sucks because I hate spending time on my hair twice a week, and the drying time takes forever. I will invest on a diffuser and try to do that instead of air drying for hours.
