Poll: does your hair routine take more or less time on CG?

I'm just wondering how the time spent on your hair has changed since going CG. Mine was shortened. I used to spend much more time 'styling', 'fixing', and combing my hair...and I didn't even straighten or dry it.

Now I condition, finger comb, Scrunch/blot dry, spray on a Curl Enhancing Leave In, apply mousse (better for me than gel) and go. No styling involved- Just air dry. I use a sulfate-free shampoo once per week or as needed. Total Time spent: 25-30 minutes for whole bathroom routine (not just hair)

    I spend about the same amount of time, but I enjoy it so much more now. I spend alot less money, I love the products I use, I love what they do for my hair, and my hair and I are both happier.
    --I'm located in Western PA.   --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.   --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.   --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.

    I spend a lot less time now - I co-wash my hair at night, add CK and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]Re:coil[/buylink], and let it air dry until bedtime - takes me 10 minutes tops. Then I put it in a scrunchie and go to bed. in the morning I take out the scrunchie, give my head a good shake and I'm good to go. I am so loving this, it is nice to be able to get out of the house in half the time it did previously.

    About the same, because before I would spend a short ammount of time brushing my hair, and then tucked into a very tight bun. But now I just spritz some product in, and voila.

    Overall it is less. If I would let it air dry, it would be longer. I do still style it :oops: - not yet to a 'no frills' do.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or hump it.....Piss on it and walk away.
