Pattern Beauty Wash n’ Go Routine: Two Products for Gorgeous Defined Curls

One of my favorite natural hairstyles is a wash-n-go. For quite some time, I did not think my type 4 hair would work in a wash-n-go. Well, I didn’t think I would like the results. With time and experience, I have learned how to properly choose styling products to achieve the best wash-n-go. Recently Pattern Beauty sent me a couple of their products to review and I figured this would be a great time to try a two-product wash-n-go.

Trying a Two Product Wash n Go with Pattern Beauty

I was super excited to receive the Pattern Beauty Styling Cream and Curl Mousse. I was tempted to purchase the Curl Gel (well, I still plan to pick it up), but I thought this would be a great time to see how my hair would respond to a mousse-only wash-n-go. I will say, I am a fan of super-defined, crunchy curls so going in I was not too optimistic. My curls are super tight and coily, I just didn’t think the final results would be something I would be proud to wear in public.

Step 1: Styling Cream

After shampooing and conditioning my hair, I sectioned my hair off into smaller sections. In my experience, I get better curl definition when working in smaller sections. Once sectioned off, I started working the styling cream into my hair being careful to coat my ends really well. According to the website, the styling cream serves as a moisturizer and would be key in preventing frizz.

Step 2: Curl Mousse

Once the styling cream was applied, I did notice a little bit of curl action with my strands. I immediately followed up with the curl mousse and let me tell you the curls started clumping. This is when I started to get excited. While applying the products, I noticed my wet hair looked pretty similar to the results I usually achieve when doing a wash-n-go with gel as a main product.

Step 3: Setting the Curls

Once I completed my entire head, it was time to set the curl. I sat under my hooded dryer for about 30 minutes and followed up with a short session with my diffuser. This step was more so to stretch my hair and get rid of some of the shrinkage.

The Results:

Before I started to manipulate my hair with the diffuser, my curls were perfectly defined. There was very little frizz and the curls were popping! Although my hair was about 80% dry when I started with the diffuser, the more I stretched and manipulated my hair, I started to lose a little hold.

Overall, I am pleased with the products. As someone who is actively working to grow my hair, I am a fan of clean hair products. I like that Pattern Beauty products are clean, quality products so that is one reason I will definitely try them again. I also like that the products did exactly what they claimed to do, I was left with soft, moisturized, and defined curls. The only thing I would do differently is add the Curl Gel. This is a personal preference because I like my wash-n-go to hold for a few days and I am also a fan of a slightly “crunchy” curl.

Overall, I give these two products two thumbs up! I am excited to try more products from their line!
