Default How long does it take you to do your hair/routine?

From washing your hair all to the end. (Not drying, of course, because that takes the longest.)

My older sister wanted to go to the movies for her birthday at the last minute, so I had to quickly wash my hair, condition it, add product, scrunch, etc. I was going so fast that the mousse landed everywhere, lols.
I also diffused my hair the best I could, but my hair was still obviously wet when I left the house.
It took me ten minutes to do all of that (shower and all).
Well, by the time the movie ended, my hair dried more and it was looking awesome!~

Usually, when I am not rushing, it would take me at least 30-40 minutes. I would diffuse for at least 10-15 minutes.


How about you ladies?
What's the fastest time you've gotten ready?
How was your hair looking when it was nearly dried?

Hmm. I don't diffuse because it makes my hair way too dry and weird. It can look OK, but I really prefer my airdryed hair, so I kind of have to budget my time accordingly. In the shower I could finish my routine in less than 5 minutes if I needed to, but I like to be in there for about 15 so I can let my conditioner sit on my hair for a while While I shave and such, haha!

Then I put in my curl cream, SheaMoisture curl milk, while my hair is still dripping wet. After that I bum around for a little, waiting for my hair to stop dripping and be slightly dry at the roots (about another 15-20) and I put in my GFPC Gel. So, my "somewhat presentable, a bit damp and weird but kind of ok" hair takes about 30-40 minutes to happen. At that point it kind of looks like I had gone swimming and my hair is still kind of wet. It's not bad, but nothing special. My hair doesn't start to look good until around the hour and a half mark; that's when my frizz randomly vanishes and my hair starts to look full/not soaked/defined and curly.

If I needed to do this on high speed for whatever reason, I could probably be ready in 20-30? But I've never been in a situation where I desperately needed to wash my hair -- my hair is super thick, kind of coarse, and does not get greasy. I'm not even kidding, it doesn't even show the slightest hint of being dirty until like, the five day mark... :P But I'm ok with that! Haha

From cleansing.... Conditioning... Detangling... Applying products, and plopping.... maybe half an hour? But plopping I can multitask while I do that for about 15 minutes or more if I have the time.

for me it depends if im talking to somone or online, but after i wash, i plop for 5 mins, then i put my hair up in two buns, i detangle one side, then add my oil mix, then my FSG then i put it back up and do the other side, i put it up in one loose bun and sleep on it. In the morning its still a bit wet, so i just shake it out and scrunch oil in it and its done so at night about 30 mins.

If I'm just doing a wash n go, then it takes about 20-30 minutes. If I'm doing twists like last night, then it takes about 1-3 hours.

Great topic! I diffuse a bit, so I'd say 20 minutes.

Depends...anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on how much individual twirling/twisting I do (yes, that works on my hair type) to get good, lasting definition and if I diffuse a bit or not. Plopping usually looks bad on me without me going over a few places and twirling it into place with a Denman. I wish it looked as good with the 10 min routine as the 30 min one.

A couple seconds

I spritz it with my leave in concoction spray and that's it. Or right after I hop out of the shower, I put a lil olive oil in my hair and let air dry.
