all i do is every 2 to 3 days a week, co wash, shampoo once a week, i don't bother detangling or anything, then i get out the shower, wring my hair out with a cotton t shirt, put in a lot of condish as a leave in, and then mousse. i braid my bangs to make them looser, leave it, and then diffuse dry. the rinsing to spread seems uneccessary to me! of course, my curls aren't perfect, but i can't be bothered to put in too much effort.
