Key tips for success

  • Ensure that your hair is dripping wet
  • Apply enough conditioner so that your hair is very slippery and feels like seaweed
  • When you scrunch with the water and conditioner in your hair, you want to hear a squishing sound
  • Big defined curl clumps should form

How Long Does It Take

The length of time you take to complete this method on wash day depends on the health of your hair and your personal preference.

It may also take a few tries to figure out what works best for your hair.

However, for starters, you can rinse when excess water is no longer dripping out when you scrunch your curls.

Do You Rinse Your Hair After Squish To Condish

Always follow the directions on your curly girl conditioner. All conditioners will recommend thoroughly rinsing the product out of your hair.

Rinsing conditioner from your curls or waves is extremely important. Leaving conditioner in your hair can lead to an imbalance of moisture vs protein in your hair and cause hygral fatigue.

Squish To Condish With Leave In Conditioner

Continue with your styling routine as usual.
