My Natural Hair Wash and Go Routine

I live for the wash and go (WnG)!  I love having my hair out and looking as it was meant to look.  My hair can get crazy — it’s multi-textured, has three different curl patterns going on, and the placement of these curl patterns are not at all symmetrical — and I love it!!!  Well, I learned to love it.  :-)  I find WnGs to be the easiest style for me to complete.  When I had relaxed hair, I would have it out, in a half ponytail, or a ponytail.  That’s it.  So flat twists, cornrows, rolls, etc., are things I have to practice and find rather difficult to do.  Thank goodness for the WnG!  Here’s what I do.

Just start writing!  Write about whatever moves you, what inspires you, what it is you’re up to.  Some of the best blogs started out as hair journals and grew from there.  Track what you’re doing every day and what you want to do the next day.  Put your goals out there, what you’re doing in order to meet them and whether you’ve achieved them.  Girl, just start writing!

KK’s Transition Story

So back in the day, I used to look like this…

KinkyKK's relaxed hair

From the time I was 12 until I was 29, I relaxed my hair every two months.  After moving to DC and seeing so many beautiful heads of natural hair, I began to wonder what my own hair would do if I would just let it be.  Seeing Chris Rock’s “Good Hair” was a bit of an eye-opener as well.  Why was I applying these harmful chemicals an inch away from my brain?!
