Wash & Go in the evenings + air dry + light mist in the morning
If the pineapple method just isn’t for you – either your hair is too short, or the pineapples stretch your hair too much – skip them altogether. Cowash and style your wash and go in the evening and let it air dry as you cook dinner and catch up on that episode of “Scandal.”
In the morning, your coils will probably be smooshed and compact. Spray your hair with a bit of water and shake or fluff to achieve the desired shape. Finish getting ready for the day, and your hair should be dry before you walk out of the door!
If you hair air dries quickly, you can add three or four light spritzes of water to your wash and go and cover with a shower cap before bed. Be sure to mist a small amount of water. Overnight, the light moisture will be trapped, keeping your coils moist, but not wet. Remove the shower cap, fluff, and go! Naptural85 on YouTube made a video showing how she maintains her wash and go using this method.
