Here’s one method of how I do a quick, simple wash n go! This took a max of 10 minutes to complete, if that.
To Make an EO Mix: I use a spray bottle that’s easy to control and hold in one hand. Fill it with warm water, then (depending on the size) add about 3 drops of lavender EO, and give it a quick shake.
I try to never comb my hair while dry, because it rips, tears, and risks damaging it. Detangling almost always takes place while I’m washing my hair, and it’s covered in conditioner. Detangling while conditioner is on your hair helps lubricate and protect the strands. Conditioner also smoothes the cuticle making it harder for strands to catch, tangle, or pull while combing.
To begin I soak my entire head (using warm, not hot, water) and rinse until the water runs clear. I do this to make sure any product that may be in is rinsed out. Next, I co wash; rinse again, then squeeze (not twist) excess water out. After rinsing I soak my hair in conditioner, making sure all sections are covered evenly.

Once the conditioner’s in I spray down my entire head very well with the EO mixture. To prevent product build up you want about half of the conditioner to be diluted. When the EO mix is in I massage it around for a few seconds, and then detangle using a wide tooth comb. I start around the edges and ends of my hair, and then work my way closer to the crown and roots. If necessary I hold sections of hair so that strands aren’t pulled or ripped out in the process. The wide tooth comb helps in the detangling, and it help define curls without manipulating them too much. If you twist, pull, or rub curly hair while it’s wet (or in the drying process) you can cause unwanted frizz. This is why I don’t use a towel for wash n go’s, but if you choose to be gentle!

|Tadaaa…hair and brows done in about 10 minutes! You can move your hair around to where you’d like it to be when dry. Try not to manipulate it too much so that you may prevent frizz.|
