Any new blow drying methods?

ResRes Posts: 2,911Registered Users
I've been using the misfitcurls way of drying, and it's fine but I want to know if anyone has a new method.

Drying is such a pain for me. I can't air dry because my hair will take forever to dry and my shirts always get wet. Plopping alone doesn't work and diffusing leaves me with frizz.
3A/B - low-normal porosity - med to coarse texture

Shampoo - GTTTT
Co-Wash - As I Am Coconut Cowash
RO - GVP Cond. Balm, Tresemme Naturals, Yes to Carrots Nourishing, AO Honeysuckle Rose
LI - Hollywood Beauty Olive Cream Headdress
DT - Hollywood Beauty Olive Cholestrol, SM Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment
Stylers - BRHG (old formula is my HG, but the new one has silicones)

Trying out - MGA Sculpting Gel, LA Sports Gel, Got2b Spiked Gel, Got2b Glued

    Hmm. Well I recently switched over from a bowl diffuser to a Hot Sock. I feel like it diffuses the air more and it's more like regular blow drying except that your hair doesn't blow around. That's the only real change I've made lately.

    Do you scrunch as you do this?

    I actually do something similar to empressri. I have a fan ( not a ceiling one) and I turn it on in medium and bend over so that I get awesome root lift. Stay there for about 10 minutes. Great way!

    LOL, my hair would still drip with this. I like to get my gel to at least harden before I leave.

    I think bending over like this would mess up my hair a bit, granted I do it for the misfitcurls method but the pineapple seems to help. Plus the blowing of the fan. But it's interesting.
