I enjoy the ease of wash and go styles but rarely do them for a couple of reasons.
#1 The shape of my hair looks ridiculous
#2 Most wash and go type products leave me disappointed

That is....until now.

I cut my hair so my shape looks awesome if I do say so myself so I figured what better time to re-visit a wash and go then now!  You all may have seen the product review on the Curly Kinks line I posted in a previous blog post. (

I initially used the products for a twist out style.  The results were really cute but not quite how the product was intended to be used.  I was hesitant....i always am.  I have what I consider to be 4c hair which consists of coarse yet fine strands in a zig zag or "z" shaped pattern.  Since I don't have a natural coil, I need a product to clump my strands together to create the illusion of having a coily/curly look.  Unfortunately most products fail at doing so.  The popular Kinky Curly leaves my hair a frizzy matted sticky mess and although I've found that Ecostyler gel does a great job at clumping my hair, I have to use half a jar of it to do so.
So...with my newly shaped fro I decided to re-visit the Curly Kinks line for it's intended use.

 I was pleasantly surprised.  One of the things that I loved about the coil jam product was the amazing slip it has, because of that a little goes a long way so I didn't end up using buckets of product in my hair.

I cheated a bit because I didn't actually wash my hair.  I started with dry hair and working section by section, saturated it with water using a spray bottle.  I then applied the Satin Roots leave in and detangled with a wide tooth comb.  From there I applied the coil jam and raked it through with my fingers.

I'm so pleased with my results!  My kinks are nicely clumped together and I love the finished look.  It has a firm hold, dries clear and I wasn't left with sticky gooey feeling hair.  This will be my new duo for wash and go hair,  a product definitely worth a re-purchase.
