I thought they sold it at Ricky's. I Know Taren916 uses it. She just talked about it in one of her most recent youtube vids.

I have the same problem especially in the more humid months have you tried letting your hair dry almost completely? Once mine is about 80% dry I'll spritz each section and apply my product. It cuts my drying time down significantly, right b4 bed if it's still too wet I have no choice but to diffuse but i try to only do my hair when I know I have a few hours and stretch it for the week.

I do WnG, twist outs, buns, etc. I don't do any one style exclusively and it depends on season. I wont do WnG during the winter and lean more towards protective styles.

WnG are nice and I love them, but its not my stable style for me. The shrinkage in my hair causes too many tangles, SSKs, etc. I have to be sure I moisturize, moisturize, moisturize seal and protect.

It would only be a rare option for me if I couldn't keep my WnG more than a day. I would hate having to constantly detangle. Thankfully I can get 4 (sometimes more) day hair out of it.

Default I don't do wash and go's

First, my twa looks like buck shot when I don't comb and style it after cleansing and conditioning. Second, combing on a regular basis prevents tangling, at least it does for me.

Apply mix of Eco Olive Gel+a thinner gel+condish,+EVOO to wet hair in sections. I apply to hair in from 4 to up to 10 sections( if i'm feeling really obsessive) However, squishing and smoothing it through 4 sections in the shower can work too.

Let dry during the day or diffuse dryer

Overnight
: make 2-3 ponypuffs to keep hair in order and for a bit of stretch. Wear silk scarf.

2nd & 3rd day
: remove elastics, spray hair with water until hair drops back into place, shake.

Do you notice a big difference when you apply in more sections? I'm wondering if you see a difference when you apply less like 4 sections.

I love wash and go's.
At the moment I'm just happy to wear then without gels. So I only use a leave in and seal with castor oil/ creamy moisturiser.

My hair stays soft and defined because I hardly disturb my curls pattern with a comb.

As for styling it's currently just pompadours in banana comb buns.
