I condition (wet hair, RO, etc...full routine) almost every day. I notice it when I don't - hair is dry the next day - but some days I just don't have time or motivation. This method has worked very well for me. You could consider trying it: http://m.naturallycurly.com/curltalk...d.php?t=120130
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
