4a's and wash n'goes.

Trying to find Eco Styler Olive Oil gel in the stores here in NYC. I've been checking regular drugstores. Popped into Conway today but they only had the pink and clear ones. I can't order it from Sally's then pay $6 shipping, makes no sense!! I'm going to check a BSS next (probably should have checked there first, lol!) or I have to wait until I need more stuff from Sally's.

Is anyone having success as a 4a/b with low porosity? Ive tried wngoing, but my hair stays wet all day. I tried doing them at night, but they always end up lopsided. Is there any way to help the products/water absorb better so I don't have to go to work wet?

Wash n gos aren't my friend....its extreme shrinkage and tangle city, lol.

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.

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.
Your hair is your most important accessory.

i have more 4b(i think) but lots of shrinkage. So far, this is my reliable routine~

1st day:
Conditioning, finger detangling in shower, apply more condish, rinse most of that out

(maybe use a leave-in cond depending on how much of the last cond. i 've rinsed out)

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.

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.

I have a small patch of 4a hair at the nape and the shrinkage is really bad....is there any way to increase elongation?
