My First Wash and Go for Summer Sixteen with Ouidad Curl Immersion

Y’all know me, I’m pretty simple when it comes to protective styling, especially Summer Protective Styling.  Braids and a unit (aka wig), 2 twists or a bun and I’m straight.  Well last week I wanted to try a little something different so I did a wash and go.   It was the perfect time since I received some new products from Ouidad’s Curl Immersion line made specifically for kinky curly hair.  In today’s post I’m sharing deets on these products and even a video demo of my styling process for this wash and go.

At now 13 months post relaxer I’m trying to introduce styles that can blend the fact that I am now dealing with 3 different curl patterns.  Over my hair journey I’ve definitely cut the majority of the fully relaxed ends and I think with one final trim I may be able to bring it down to 2; my texlaxed hair and over a year’s worth of natural hair that has grown in.

It’s been a good minute since I’ve done one but I will say the key to a successful wash and go are the products you use to create it.  Also technique definitely plays a part in it as well because using these same products in a similar style I ended up finger coiling a section of my hair and I wished I had done that with this wash and go (you live and you learn right?!).

I’ll be trying out a few different ones to see which will be perfect forI’ll be trying out a few different ones to see which will be perfect to achieve the look I’m going for.  My first Wash and Go for Summer Sixteen will be using some products from Ouidad.
Ouidad offers various lines for various types of curly hair patterns. You may remember in my Healthy Hair Care Products for Spring & Summer, I shared some items from Ouidad but I have yet to use those as of yet.   Well Ouidad was kind enough to send over their Ouidad Curl Immersion line for me to test out that is made specifically for the kinky curly hair types and now these I couldn’t wait to put them to test!  Here’s a closer look at the products themselves and be sure to tune into Wash and Go video using them.

My wash and go last for 3 days and then I used the products again in a different hairstyle that I’ll be sharing with you guys next week so be sure to subscribe using the link at the end of the post to be notified when that post goes live.  For now check out my the video sharing my initial thoughts on the Ouidad Curl Immersion Travel Set and get to see this Wash and Go go down.

Next go round with my wash and go I am going to take smaller sections and do the finger coil method for more curl definition.  Do you love a wash and go during the Summer??  Let me know if you want another video showing that but I do think I’d be more likely to maintain it longer if it was actually curly.  If you have any additional tips or tricks on how to achieve that perfect Wash and Go I’d love to hear your thoughts down in the comments below or as always you can
Keep Up With Kay!!!

    This is a very detailed review! Thanks! I’ve seen Ouidad in stores but never gave it a try. Now that I know what to expect I will give it a shot.

  • Great review. I have seen this brand but never looked at it since its for kinky curly hair.

  • Kemkem

    Nice. I would definitely try these products. My hair is super short but it has kinky curls that l would like to stay put, just like it is after washing. Thanks for this, l think l would like it. I like the ingredients they use. 🙂

  • Omgosh I’ve been waiting for someone to review this new line! I loved the way that you were able to easily detangle your hair even with all the textures! Is that a testament to the deep conditioner?

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!

    I’ve used Ouidad products before but I’ve never used these specific products. I must say, the wash-n-go was my go-to look for a very long time. It’s just super easy and, because my hair gets great coils, it was easy to work with. Now that I’m letting my short fro grow out it’s much harder to really wash and GO!! I’ll definitely have to check this out!

  • Valerie Robinson

    Beautiful! I’ve been wanting to try these products for quite some time! Now I’m extremely interested!

  • I have to try Ouidad! I’ve been hearing about them but haven’t tried them yet. Going to give them a go. Thanks for sharing!
