SAHM and daily routines

I am a stay at home mom of a 14mo so most days I don't go out. Everything I read says gel of some sort daily to prevent frizzing and what not....since most days it doesn't matter that much about how my hair looks--I am really starting to like the wavies and curls but I hate having gel in it every day. Can the gel be skipped and still encourage curls--just put leave in on or does the gel help keep the moisture in? Do other SAHM have a daily at home routine then a routine for when you are planning on people seeing you--if so what is your at home routine?

    I am a SAHM or work from home on some days - part-time on others. I still use gel, I just use less, and use the cheap stuff. ;)

    On days I have to be presentable, my routine is somewhat different, but not much. It's basically the same just with a few added steps.
