Wash 'n' Go????

For all my fellow transitioners and fully naturals:

How long was it into your transition before you were able to do a wash 'n' go and get the desired results?

I really want to do one but I feel like I won't be able to do it (without it looking a mess) until I am fully natural and have a definite curl pattern.
I think, when I was transitioning, I attempted a wash and go once . . let's just say it was lack luster and stringy at the ends because of the two textures.

You can always try a twist out to get a curly all over look. I wasn't able to do a wash and go until after I BC'd.

I attempted one while I was transitioning it looked atrocious...the two textures just didn't look good...

WnG x (natural hair + relaxed ends) = no bueno...

i am 2 months into my transition. i wash n go every morning. i work out in the morning then co-wash, put on anti-frizz serum, then seal. i pulled the top half back in a hair clip and left the lower half to fall free. The hair in the hair clip did fine... softer looser curl. the bottom half was a tighter curl. it was small spirals. i need to find a product that will loosen the curl a tad and all will be fine. i am still figuring out what products to use in my hair. i am experimenting with avon's advanced techniques frizz control conditioner, frizz serum, and skin so soft bath oil.

I tried a twist out last night & it looked good on the natural part of my hair but the relaxed bits didn't curl at all. Has anyone overcome this problem?

I can't wait to be all natural again.
I read on another forum that curling my relaxed ends with flexirods is the answer. I'll def b giving this a try soon
Hahaha I can't do it either. Perm ends look crappy.
