To be honest I don't look forward to wash day. It can take 4 to 5 hours from start to finish. My hair is very long and thick with a curly wavy combination in texture. This is what works for my hair as I understand all hair types are different. I do not have a regimen. I just use healthy practices washing and styling my hair when needed. With all hair types is important to be patient and gentle using natural products if possible. Be sure to wrap your hair with a silk or satin scarf when you sleep.
