Girl, I know the feeling. You can do less. I wash once a week, condition detangle & twist. I do two Pocahontas flat twists when I'm lazy. I wear them for a week. & repeat. Once or twice a week I get in the shower undo the twists condition, moisturize & re twist it. Find a go to style that works for you. Reading curly girl helped me a ton.
Truth is it takes me 2 hrs to wash, blow dry, & straighten. So either way I'm such messing with my hair for hours.
