Prevent Products from Sitting on Your Hair
 
Most of the time, when I apply products to my hair they just sit there for a long time and leave white residue and i do not have time for that to eventually go away. I noticed that when I DC my hair, the product will sit UNTIL i put on my plastic cap and heat it up. When i take the cap off all the whiteness is gone. So i thought to myself, maybe I can do that with my wash & gos?

So after I apply my styling products I put my cap on, heat it with the blowdryer and leave it on for 15 minutes. When I take it off all the whiteness is gone and the products have absorbed into my hair! Success! I dont know if people have tried this before but if not, give it a shot.

^^^When you say, "put your cap on" do you mean a plastic shower cap?

Yes I just use a shower cap and heat it up with a blow dryer for like 2 minutes then let it sit for 10-15.

I saw something like this on some girl's blog. But she used a steamer instead. it sounds like it would work but I've never tried it.

I also do something similar but I use the steam from the shower - I put the cal on, run very warm water over the cap to warm it and build up a little steam, then leave it on while I finish my shower. For a longer DT, I wrap my hair in a hot wet washcloth then apply the cap then I put a heating pad over that.

Someone mentioned to me once the hair dryer thing (it was probably you lol) and I tried it - the other options fit in my routine better but the hair dryer was effective. Definitely a good option! :)
