HOW I REVIVED MY COILS FOR A BETTER WASH N GO
|Dull, Lackluster Coils Need to Be Reset for Shiny Wash & GO|
There are times when I can't just co-wash my way into a wash & go. For some reason, my hair seems to need a total reset. It could be because of product buildup, too much sun exposure, something in the water, or so many other reasons! If you experience dry, dull looking coils that won't spring into action when attempting your wash & go, maybe you need to hit the "RESET" button.

MY COIL "RESET BUTTON"
1) I use a spray bottle with my favorite conditioner, favorite oil, and some water (milkshake consistency). I spray that throughout (I like to finger detangle at this time) and make sections of two strand twists (about 8 to 10 twists).
2) Leave those saturated twists for an hour under a cap, or do a steam treatment with my twists piled high atop my head so the ends of my hair get treated.
3) Rinse out the conditioner mix in the shower, then cleanse scalp and strands with Amla Powder Mix. RINSE THOROUGHLY! At this point, my coils are "reset" and ready to be defined by my curl definer of choice
4) Don't forget to apply the curl definer effectively. I found that when I applied my curl defining product (conditioner) sparingly, my hair appeared dry, lackluster once it dried fully. I also found that once I was done applying the conditioner, I had to seal with an oil (Shea Moisture Curling Souffle) for added shine, define, control.

TIPS: Make sure your ends are not broken/split. Curly hair showcases best with clean, healthy hair ends. Make sure to remove all shed hairs during the conditioning phase. Otherwise, during the cleansing, the shed hairs will wrap around other hairs and make knots.
