Yesterday I attempted my first wash and go in a long time. The reason why the wash and go was needed, buildup, caused a big issue. Washing took more time than I had that morning and I kept having to wash certain trouble spots with shampoo and water after leaving the shower. I could see I dislodged grey goop of buildup from my scalp to the body of my locks. It hit me that I had not had a quick clarifying cleanser on hand in a while. Baking soda is awesome but that takes time and I could not afford to smell like vinegar at work until my hair dried.

But I made it work and left the trouble spots that I did not have time to really cleanse icky and for later. I made sure to really massage the dirt out of the visible areas.
