Is the wash & go your staple style?  Some people use the winter months to wear protective styles, shielding their curls and coils from harsh weather. We know that’s not a desirable route for everybody, and the wash and go will continue year-round.

But how can you avoid leaving the warmth of your home to fare frozen temperatures with wet hair? We’ve done the work for you and found a couple popular ways people still enjoy wash and gos without catching a cold in the process.

Wash & Go in the evenings + pineapple + air dry

If you already have a preference for night showers, these next three methods will be easy to get used to. First, try doing your wash and gos in the evening, giving your hair time to air dry in the comfort of your warm home. Experiment with the pineapple method and gather all your hair (or sections of it) into a high puff(s) or ponytail(s). Just wrap the hair tie once or twice around. This will keep the roots stretched as they dry, but the length of your hair will stay defined through the night.

In the morning, just take out the hair ties, shake/fluff, and go!
