Natural Curly Hairstyles: Mini Marley Wash & Go Tutorial for Natural Hair

Step 1

Wash, Section & Detangle.

To begin, wash your hair with TRESemmé Flawless Curls Shampoo and condition with the TRESemmé Flawless Curls Conditioner, which will help you to cleanse and hydrate your curls. After washing your hair, divide your hair into several workable sections and detangle your hair using a brush. This is key for a wash-and-go hairstyle since you want to make sure that there are no kinks or snags in your hair.

Step 2

Define your curls.

Take a dollop of TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel and apply it to the root of your first section. Rake the gel throughout your hair from root-to-tip, allowing your curls to smooth down and then clump together. Continue this process throughout the remaining sections of your hair.

Step 3

Smooth the edges.

Using a toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of gel, brush your hairline to keep it smooth and flat. This will also help to slick down your edges.

Step 4

Diffuse your hair.

Using a blowdryer with a diffuser attached, diffuse your curls until they are dry. To give your hair a bit of stretch and volume, gently hold the roots of your hair taut while drying.

Step 5

Separate your curls.

After drying your hair, separate curls that are clumped together to create a fuller look.

Step 6

Finish with an oil.

Give your curls some shine! Work a squirt of the Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil onto the base of your hair. If you need more shine, don’t hesitate to add another pump.
