Default Wash and Gos?

Sorry if this sounds ignorant, but I'd like someone to clarify something for me. I don't get this whole thing about "wash and go". When someone describes how they do a wash and go, it just sounds like a typical hair routine; washing, conditioning, and styling. What makes a wash and go different? How is it defined?

I've always wondered the same thing. Maybe it's taking less time styling?

There are certain methods that take some time to do, such as diffusing, super soaking, plopping, twisting, etc. I think a wash and go is literally just washing your hair, putting in stylers, and going about your day.

A wash and go for me would be washing my hair, conditioning, and allowing to air dry, maybe adding gel

For me, these things would not be "wash and go":
  • Wash and then blow dry
  • Wash and then blow dry and flat iron
  • Wash and then put my hair in a bunch of twists/bantu knots/rollers/flexi rods/etc to take out later and have different definition in my hair
  • Wash and then "Protective Style"
l.deon, poemaXX and KellyB like this.

Yes, like other curlies have described, a wash and go is just a simple routine for curly hair. I only do wash and go's because nothing else works for me. I cowash my hair, add products, and go.

^^Yep, agreed, it's just styling and wearing the hair "curly". I think "wash & wear" is more accurate, but the clothing associations makes it sound weird lol
