definitely night or late afternoon. I have an odd work schedule, i usually start seeing clients around 3 or 4 pm and I hike and swim earlier in the day, so now i am putting shea butter in my hair while active and then co washing it, doing the clips and air drying while i see my clients. if i have no clients i do the metal clips but it looks too weird to work with it that way. then i sleep in pineapple on satin pillowcase and the hair is usually pretty good in the morning.
