to the curlies who wash their locks in the morning...

Right now I get up at 7:30 to be at work by 8:30. But am considering adjusting it earlier by at least a half hour cause my hair is still quite wet when I get to work. I don't diffuse at all though, so I may also try that.
I used to have to be at the bustop at 7 am. I usually woke up anywhere between 5:30 and 6:15. I don't know what I'm going to do this year. I prefer sleep over hair.

Currently: Trying to stop straightening so much. Using Elucence conditioner and whatever works for me.
Ideally, i like a three hour window to get ready in the morning. It gives my hair time to dry and let's me relax and take my time, have a nice breakfast, watch some tv, read a little, etc. However, I sometimes (ok, often) choose to sleep in and haul ass instead. So, nowadays, I wake up at 7am in order to leave the house at 8:15 so I can get to the lab at 9am with my hair about 75% dry. I don't like hauling ass because I'm slow in the morning, so instead of lumbering around like I want to, I have to run around like a mad woman, which leaves no room for anyone to even speak to me.

I have to be at work at 8. I try to get up at 6:30, but usually it ends up being closer to 6:45 or so. I go into work with my hair wet, but it's usually dry or mostly dry by about 9.

2c or 3a Cut most of my hair off in July '12 and am working on regrowing it.
I've gotten to the point where I don't like walking out with wet hair and it's affecting my life. I prefer to workout in the a.m. but then I have to co-wash. I'm just too impatient to diffuse so I walk around for 3-5 hours with wet hair (hate it!) I hate to diffuse with their weak dryers I get up at 5 to workout then get ready and leave for work at the club.

If I'm not working out I like a lot of time in the a.m. (6-630 wakeup to get to work at 9-9:30). This is not all grooming; I meditate and do a few chores and 45 minutes is drive time (this is why I want a hood dryer for the car!) But lately I either wash hair at night and hood dry, or take a 1/2 hours in the am to hood dry. I'm working out less, but I need to switch them to evening.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.

<< Thank goodness I work from home now. I used to do the go to work wet thing and scrunch out when it dried. I am sure my co workers were wondering what the hell happened when I went in that bathroom and came out with bigger hair. >>

LOL ... all of the above applies to me, too. ...

There are a lot of things I don't do now that I work at home. Don't wear "business attire" or makeup every day, don't waste gasoline and time in traffic, don't have to put up with cranky co-workers (that's the BEST part ).

And if my hair looks bad, no one has to see it!

xcptnl and alacurl, what do you guys do that you work at home (this is my dream btw, esp for when i have kids).
Sorry, I know that is off topic, but I had to ask!

ETA - I agree with what alacurl said - you do need focus. I also meet with clients so that helps with the interaction part.

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
I do graphic design and management "stuff" for a corporate employer, and I have freelance writing and editing clients.

My schedule is flexible as long as I get my work done, which has spoiled me! But if you are not disciplined and focused, or if you need interaction, working from home might not be so great.
