10 Tips For An Easy, Hassle-Free Wash Day
Washing your hair can sometimes be a chore and for most, one they would rather pay a professional to take on. However, that’s not always an option. Whether you’re naturally curly or transitioning from heat or chemicals, these tips will help make your wash day a lot easier; leaving the days of frustration behind you.
1. Designate Any Day of the Week as WASH DAY!
Choose a day and schedule enough free time to wash, condition, treat and style your hair.
2. Pre-cleanse with Wash Day Wonder by DevaCurl.
This product is perfect for those that are tender headed or have tangle-prone curls. The slip this product provides is simply AMAZING!
3. Cleanse in Sections
If you have an overwhelming amount of hair or if you’re a novice when it comes to shampooing/co-washing, try sectioning the hair into 4 sections by braiding, and cleanse one section at a time.
4. Wash in the Shower
This prevents tangling by keeping the hair flowing in a single downward direction. Continue to rinse in the same downward motion.
5. Treat your Hair!
Hydration and protein treatments are essential to having healthy hair. These can easily be done at home in many ways. All you need is product, a plastic cap, and a heat source of your choice, such as a hair steamer, bonnet hair dryer, or even steam from the shower. Your at home routine is incomplete if you do not incorporate treatments into your wash day routine. The best hair days are usually experienced after conditioning treatments!

6. Finger Detangle on Super Wet Hair in the Shower
The detangling process is easier in the shower while using lots of conditioner and water. This will prevent the hair from drying, making it more manageable. Patience is key and remember, your hair will thank you for it later!
7. Minimize Drying Time
Always use a microfiber towel or T-shirt to absorb excess water. This is best for smooth, frizz-free curls. No matter if you plan to air dry, use a diffuser, or braid/twist, this will reduce the amount of time it takes for your hair to dry overall.
8. Establish a Routine and Stick To It!
Practice makes perfect and over time, the process will get easier and faster. Remember to condition regularly, and to include trimming in your regimen.
9. Keep a Positive Outlook
Instead of thinking of wash day as a chore, use it as a way to be creative and explore doing different things with your hair.
10. Continue to Schedule Appointments with a Trusted Hair Care Professional
The knowledge and experience of a professional is invaluable and should NEVER be eliminated from your routine. It is key to discuss goals & challenges with your stylist so you’re both on the same page and can design a regime that would help you achieve you hair goals!
