For this wash n go look, I used the Curl Elixir made with flaxseed gel and honey. No flakes, no crunchy curls and this is my hair fully dried.
You have to use a good product and the right technique to get the definition you are looking for. For medium length to long hair this can actually be quite time consuming because you will need to work section by section raking your hands through each section to define your coils. Nevertheless, once you achieve the look you are going for the results are well worth it and throughout the week all you will need to do is lightly refresh your hair to maintain the style. Your best bet is using a quality gel product that will not dry your hair out to get some nice definition.
