So...what's your routine?

I'm fairly new to the curly girl method, and while there are lots of threads for products, usually one has to ask directly what someone's routine is. So I thought it would just be easier to have a thread for it.
Sorry if it's been done, but I can't find it. : p
There is a thread on the 2's board, don't know about any other threads like that.

Mine is:
Spread conditioner through my hair and detangle using my fingers
Use comb to detangle
Rinse
Co-wash (once a week)
Use rinse out conditioner and let it sit for two minutes (haven't figured out how often to use)
Rinse with cold water
Scrunch out excess water
Mix a nickle sized blob of mousse with a half dollar sized blob of gel and smooth/scrunch in my hair
Loosely pineapple and plop with t-shirt
Go to bed
In the morning I take it down and let it finish drying
Use about a nickle sized blob of gel to SOTC

Products used are BTZ (Beyond The Zone) Noodle Head Mousse (won't be purchasing again) HESMU (Herbal Essences Set Me Up Gel) HETT (Herbal Essences Totally Twisted) and Burt's Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Conditioner.
The HETT is used to SOTC.

ETA-
I forgot, I do a honeygar rinse once a week after detangling, co-washing and using rinse out conditioner.
Cleanser: Liquid Castile Soap diluted in a foaming soap dispenser
Rinse:
ACV rinse
Detangler/Conditioner:
Oyin Handmade Greg Juice or Juices and Berries
Stylers: Botticelli Botanicals Styling Mudd, KCCC, Honey Rinses and BRHG, Crack Leave-in Hair Cream when straightening

Tools: Silk pillowcase, Floursack towels, Jersey T-Shirts, Wide Tooth Comb, Velecta Paramount TGR-VQX Hair Dryer (for when I straighten) and BaByliss PRO Ionic Rollabout Hard Hat Dryer

Thanks for commenting. There should be more threads like this. It's easy to learn from other peoples routines, especially if you are a beginner like me.
This is my usual routine atm...

First, when I wash my hair..

*I low-poo using Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo, only on my scalp.
*Then, after I'm done low-pooing, I condition my hair with Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner, (which I sometimes mix with Vo5 Conditioner)
*Then I de-tangle my hair usually with a wide tooth comb, or just with my fingers.
*Once I'm done de-tangling, I scrunch my hair, to the side, the other side, and then I flip my hair upside down and scrunch more.
*Then I wash out the conditioner with cold water, and continue to scrunch my hair.

*Then once I'm done washing my hair, I scrunch in Biotera Curl Creme into my hair.

Currently trying out the CG method again as of 1/3/12!

Current Routine:
Co-wash/RO: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle
Low poo: Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat (when needed)
Products: LA Looks Sports Gel and Curly Kinks Coil Jam



I'll respond since I've just now got my routine down where I don't want to really experiment anymore. It works!

Co-wash using VO5 Vanilla mint
Condition with Tigi Moiture Maniac, squishing it in, then clip it up while I finish my shower, then R/O
Flip over, and use a small amount of MM as a L/I
While still flipped over and in the shower, rake LA Looks Curl through the under section, then through the top section, then scrunch in more, or BRHG into the ends, scrunch, scrunch, scrunch!
Get out, squeeze out the excess with a flour sack towel, plop for 15 min. Put some clips on the top sections for lift.

Then I may air dry, or diffuse

Sounds like more than it really is when printed out. i really don't spend but about 20 min on my hair. I love it, freedom!
