How to Define a TWA on 4C Hair

Share this


There’s been a lot of debate regarding what “defines” a wash and go. There isn’t a “one size fits all” method to achieving a wash and go, and if you want super defined coils, you may not be able to literally wash your hair and head out the door. In this video, askpRoy shows us how she defines her TWA, which requires more than washing and going.

Keep in mind (as askpRoy notes in this video), products do not create curls- they only enhance the curl pattern you already have. So embrace your natural texture! You can utilize this method to define your curls, which will stretch your wash and go and result in beautifully defined curls.

Here are a few key tips to take away:

1. Start on hair that is well-saturated.
2. Use enough product, but not too much (find that balance).
3. Sometimes your fingers are great for defining curls because you can manipulate the hair more easily than using a comb or brush.
4. Do not touch the hair while it dries!
5. Dry completely before shaking, picking, or manipulating the hair.

  1. I loved the video. . I use Originals by Africa’s Best Hair Mayonnaise. I apply it after I wash and condition my hair. Then I let it dry. In a couple of hours its curly

  2. I never comment on videos like this but i just had to say THANK YOU! I am one of the misinformed who thought “wash and go” meant wash, apply product, and go flaunt the beautiful curls that will magically appear on their own. I was frustrated that my curl products weren’t doing their job. Thanks for clarifying. Looks like I need to go experiment 🙂

  3. Can you guys give me the name of the products you used to get that 4c defined curl please. I would so love to try it. I have always tryed looking for videos that would let me get that natural curl without riding or heating. So it would be great if you guys give me the names of those products thank you.

  4. By the end of the video, I was like “Wait, is her hair even 4C anymore???” And then she showed the before and after and I was like oh my god how did this happen?
