Wash n’ go’s are perfect for summer. Wash n’ go’s are low maintenance, easy, quick and fun! Wash n’ go’s can be achieved by simply washing and conditioning, or co-washing the hair, adding your favorite leave in conditioner, and hitting the door. Tgin’s Twist and Define Cream, Curl Bomb Moisturizing Styling Gel, as well as Butter Cream Moisturizer for Natural Hair are three great products, that not only offer moisture, but also definition, for the perfect summer curls. Using a shampoo with no sulfates will also allow you to get soft, beautiful curls, without having to worry about them being dull or lifeless. Tgin’s Sulfate Free, Moisture Rich Shampoo, is perfect for frequent use, without over drying. Here are five easy ways to add a twist to the summer wash n’ go!

Braids are fun, youthful and easy. What better way to add some dimension to your wash n’ go than to add a braid? Adding a braid can add a little spunk to this easy hairstyle. You can add a french braid to the front or back of your hair, or even an individual braid, to stand out in your funky fro!

2. Twist it up

Twists are another great way to add something  extra to the average wash n’ go. Twists can also be done as a flat style in the front of the hair, or even in the back to transform your wash n’ go to a quick and fun up-do.

3. Pomp it up

Similar to the pompadour, you can do a small hump in the front of your hair by taking a small section of hair in the front, manipulating it into a hump, securing it with a bobby pin and allowing your natural curls to cascade as they normally would or pinning it up in the back for a protective up-do.

4.Color for the summer

Color is always fun to play around with, especially in the summer. Try adding accent clip in pieces of hair throughout your wash n’ go, or even use rinse out color, such as color tattoo over a few strands, to add a pop of color.

5. Rock a scarf

There is nothing more sexy and mysterious, than a confident women rocking a scarf, red lipstick, and oversized sunglasses in the summer! So 1950’s glam. Wrap your favorite scarf, or even old tee shirt around your head and allow your curls to come out at the top. This look is great for a summer day or night, and looks amazing with bold earrings!

Remember to always ensure your hair is well moisturized, nourished, and detangled before rocking this do! Happy hair don’t care!
