Washing Your Hair: Morning VS Night

Do you wash your hair at night, or in the morning? In an ideal world, I would wash my hair in the morning, let my deep conditioner sit for a half-hour, then allow it to air dry, no matter how many hours it would take. However, unfortunately, that is not realistic for me right now as I adjust to working office full time again. I am currently experimenting with which time of day works better for me to wash. I don't like night washing, but getting up out of bed earlier than I already do is near impossible. CLICK HERE to read my NaturallyCurly.com article on the pros and cons of washing your hair in the morning versus washing your hair at night.
