    I do a couple of things whenever i want to stretch out a wash n go. For one I sleep on a satin pillow case so that helps with the tangles. In the morning I shower, let some of the water run over my hair (just a little bit). Once I'm done showering I let my hair dry then use a pomade or hair butter and run it over my fro. I use my fingers to "pick out" my fro from the roots a bit and then run my hands over my hair again with pomade. I usually get frizz control and a reasonably styled fro from that. HTH!

    That used to work well. But now since he picks it out thurs thru sunday his curls are frizzy during the week when he doesn't pick.

    By the way, maneman I sent him a link to your site.

    Do you sleep on a satin pillowcase? That makes your hair less frizzy and less prone to tangles.

    I still don't have a night time routine. I just fall asleep.

    But for the morning routine, if you have a short curly hairstyle, you want to be careful and consider that sometimes prepare the hair early because I've had to rewash and jump back in the shower many times because I should not have picked the hair out that morning.

    Just use your hands to rake and fluff out the curls then if you have your sides tapered by a barber you can wet your brush and brush down the sides or whichever direction the sides grow.
