Default Wash n Go ladies...how many products do you use at once?

Happy Holidays ladies!

How many products do you use for your wash n gos? Right now I use a leave-in, styler, moisturizer, and gel. Eventually I also want to incorporate a light oil as well and I'm just wondering if I'm using to many products.

It depends on the dewpoint and the line I'm using. On average though, two products (LI and a gel). For 2+ day hair I then incorporate the oil, pomade, or cream to maintain everything.

From shampoo or co-wash through gel - 5 or 6:
cowashor shampoo
conditioner or DT, then butter or oil product over that, and rinse
Pre-leave in (usually Abba Pure Gentle)
Leave in or Styler
Gel

+1

But during the winter months(-15 dewpoint today), I do LI, oil & top w/gel.

I only wash and go in the warmer months so that I don't have to use so many products at once. When I used to w/g during the winter, I used lots of products to combact the dryness.

Here's what I currently do

Wash day:
1. wash with conditioner (or shampoo if needed)
2. condition (or deep condition if needed)
3. leave in
4. buttery product on ends
5. gel

On the off chance that I do a w/g in the winter, then it goes to this:

1. wash with conditioner
2. condition
3. leave in (lighter leave in to help absorb the water)
4. Oil/heavier leave in mix over length of hair (to seal in moisture)
5. heavier buttery/creamy styler
6. gel (if needed, but usually skip in winter)

The routine is the same for me summer or winter but the products may change based on what I need ingredient-wise.

After shampoo & conditioner I use: LI, Sealer (buttery creamy product), Gel

I don't know what category to put AOMM or KC Spiral Spritz. I use it for extra definition and in my routine it looks like: KCSS/AOMM, LI, Sealer, Gel

Currently I use My Honeychild Type 3 Cream topped with Komaza Coconut Hair Pudding. I get soft touchable hold. During the summer, I pretty much only use Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Moisturizer.

1. co-wash/clarify & condition
2. Gel-
Long Aid in the summer
KCCC or DB's new curling cream gel in the winter

After two years of being natural, I am still looking for a leave-in that my hair likes.

First of all great thread. I thought I was crazy for having 4 steps, but they guarantee great hair days.

I use leave in, styler, curl cream, then gel

Everytime I try another combo, I get frizzy frizz..

If I am rocking a fluffy fro then no gel.

Two or three. Usually just a LI and styler, but I'm adding an oil for my growth goals...
Sometimes I just use one (usually a curl creme or LI), and if my styler stinks and I need a gel on top it can get up to four. But two is my usual.

Just two EVOO or sweet almond oil then I add a creamy butter or a product (like the old Afroveda Curl Define or whipped cream by curls) .

After a cowash it's LI, Oil (Castor, Shea, or Olive) then Aloe Vera Gel.

But lately I've been doing more twistouts. I get fewer SSKs than with WandGs.

I only use 2: reg condish as my LI and a butter (used to use avocado butter) or gel (usually ecostyler olive oil). Or sometimes just conditioner only. I'm too lazy to go through all those steps and I don't like a lot of stuff in my hair... I have a slight phobia of buildup lol.

Usually 3. 2 conditioners + butter for sealing. Or 1 conditioner + activator gel + butter for sealing.

Dang

I use two products to wash and go. A slippery conditioner and curl activator gel. I can make it work with only my LongAid but the slippery condish makes for an easier application of the curl activator.
