I'm partly in the same boat. Just for laziness' sake I took a bath last night with one condition in my hair (so probably in for 20 minutes or so), rinsed it out completely, then put a wee bit in my ends. Then I just scrunched out the extra water and went to bed. no gel, no diffuser, and it was still rather wet.
Now this morning, I'm half thinking that if I'd done that then actually let it dry without squashing it into my pillow that it'd look fabulous. Despite my curl pattern itself being kinda limp from sleeping on them wet, my hair has more volume this morning that when I gel and diffuse, it feels more soft and light and bouncy than it has in YEARS. Hell, probably since I was a kid with virgin hair! I never knew how badly my hair wanted moisture till I found this place.
