MoKnowsHair always gives us the best tips and tricks for revealing our absolute best hair, no matter what texture, type, or budget. She recently showed us in her video, "The $20 Wash-N-Go Regimen" that it is possible to have a short, inexpensive--but super effective--wash day in a season where we want as much time to go have fun rather than doing hair chores on our only day off.

Tools used

Steps

1. Shampoo twice followed by a conditioning with Trader Joe's Nourish Spa. Mo uses vinyl gloves to have the full ability to grab strands without excessive pull-out during detangling.

2. Section off detangled areas and clip up.

3. Cover hair with a plastic cap followed by thermal heat cap for about 20 minutes .

4. Rinse with lukewarm water and style with LottaBody's lightweight styling creme followed by the gelee.

5. Use a Denman to encourage curl clumping.

6. Diffuse with Ion dryer on high heat to stretch the curl. Over the days, the strands will swell and allow for a voluminous wash-and-go.

7. Sleep with a satin scarf every night to preserve your wash-and-go throughout the week.
