I have very thick, coarse, frizzy, high maintenance hair😱..
I wash it of an evening, put a bucket load of straitening product in it and leave it to dry. I cannot blow dry my hair, I just turn it into an even bigger frizz ball!!
In the morning I straighten it, one tiny section at a time, using a ghd. This takes forever, by the way! But it's worth it. I transform my hair into a smooth, sleek, shiny 'do that people comment on. The straightening alone takes at least an hour.
I get about 2 or sometimes 3 days out of a good straighten. Unless I get caught in the rain or we go swimming! Then I start from scratch!

I twist mine into a french roll almost everyday. It looks neat and polished, but it's the laziest style ever taking all of 2 mins tops. A bit of hairspray if i can be bothered.

When i had long hair i used to just throw it in a messy bun/pony tail every day. Its really curly and frizzy and a pain to manage. I only ever straightened it on special occasions but didnt do it section by section, i figured out a way to do it in about 15 mins. But with the humid climate it would be a frizz ball within the hour.
Now i have a really short concave bob. So much easier to manage. It has lost a lot of curl but still wavey if i dont straighten it but still looks nice. I straighten it maybe 3 times a week, going section by section now and it takes about 10-15 mins and stays straight for a day or 2. The only products i use are heat protection spray and sometimes hair spray and i only use them if i am straightening it.

I have a concave bob and straighten it daily. Probably spend about 15 minutes doing it. My hair has a natural wave to it so really just looks messy if i don't straighten it.

I have a pixie cut and I just wash and brush it everyday. 2 mins in shower and 30 second comb into shape.

Mine is shoulder length and layered with a side fringe. I wash every 2 days and i use dry shampoo on the in between or it feels gross. I will only blow dry bits stinking out and my fringe if it needs. I like to wear it out but i find when it gets close to needing a cut it gets semi unmanageable so pony tail it is.

It takes me all of 1 minute to tie it in a bun. It looks shocking though!
It's naturally frizzy and even after caring for it (wash once a week and dry shampoo in between, treatments, hair oils etc) the only way it will be frizz free is to use a hair straightener.
I only use the straightener on special occasions though. It would take me about 30 minutes to straighten it's halfway down my back. It's pointless to do it all the time as I'm constantly sweating due to heat and humidity! Plus a baby with permanently wet hands wanting to pull it!

I wash my hair once a week (though it should be every 2/3 days) and put it in a high pony once towel dried and continue to wear it in a high pony every single day. So it takes maybe 30 seconds a day?
At the moment 'sleeping in' as late as possible is more important to me than my hair looking nice.
