How do you do your EVCO/honey soaks?

Chuck my hair in a shower cap, sometimes a turban towel on top to retain the heat of the head, leave overnight or even up to 24 hours. Sometimes the next day I take the cap off for an hour or two and leave the conditioner mix to partially 'dry' on my head, on the basis as water molecules leave my hair fatty acids might take their place. All depends on what commitments I have, what mood I am and how much help I think my hair needs.

If I used shampoo I would worry less about leaving so long, shampoo can lift the cuticle which can aid penetration at the point of washing out. And if I was not single I might be less willing to sleep in a shower cap!!
