Why would going un-CG be any less time consuming though? Wouldn't you still have to wash, detangle and apply product? Or do you mean the heat styling aspect? I guess if you were to straighten your hair you could go days without washing. But for me that wold be tricky. It would still get messed up when I exercise. . . I bet you look gorgeous and get tons of compliments though. However I also bet everyone wants to touch your mermaid curls.
