    I have no personal experience but I looked into this a bit when deciding if I wanted to go with a new dryer/diffuser or a bonnet. My thought is that, yes, the soft one should give you more mobility. To walk around with it might not be especially convenient but to stand/sit and do makeup or sit and watch tv, check emails, etc it should be good. Even one that connects to your dryer could probably run while you do you makeup - you would just have to prop your dryer in a way that provides airflow to the dryer but holds it in place. I think a hard one would severely limit any real movement and would not allow you to sit under it in a way that you could apply makeup or do much of anything productive.

    I opted to go with a diffuser/dryer set-up simply because I wanted more control in forming the curls, and I don't work outside the home so I usually don't have the time issue.

    Again, those are just thoughts to help you think through what might work. Hopefully someone with first-hand experience will chime in with more thoughts, too. :)

    My hair:
    2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
    My routine:
    Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
    RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

    Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.

    Don't put the blow dryer on a high blow setting or the bonnet will fly off of your head. I know from personal experience.

    texture - medium/fine, porosity - low/normal, elasticity - normal
    co-wash - NaturelleGrow Coconut Water or Marshmallow Root, Slippery Elm Bark & Blue Malva Cleansing Conditioners
    LI - KCKT mixed w/ SM C & H Curl & Style Milk
    DC - NG Mango & Coconut H2O or Chamomile/Brdck Root
    Gel - SM souffle (winter), KCCC (summer) or CR Naturals Aloe Whipped Butter Gel (year round)
    Sealers - Virgin Coconut Oil, Avocado butter, Aloe butter
    Ayurvedic treatments - Jamila Henna, Sukesh, Aloe Vera Powder, Hibiscus Powder
    .

    I'm new to trying to go all natural with my curls. So far, it's definitely been a learning process. However, I know already I can't continue the air drying. I've tried washing/conditioning/gel and air dry in the evening and when I go to bed 3-4 hours later, my hair's still damp. Get up looking like Medusa. I refuse to do this in the morning and spend half a day at work with wet/stiff hair, not to mention it's COLD outside.

    So, I think I need to wash in the a.m. and use a dryer. Never been crazy about diffusers and my time is limited, so I'm thinking I should go for a hard hat or soft bonnet dryer I can use while I'm putting my makeup on. Seems like more people like the hard hat, but I thought a soft bonnet would allow me to move around at my vanity a little more. Thoughts?

    I just bought a hard hat dryer (BaByliss) and used it for the first time this morning. I LOVE IT. MORE THAN ANYONE SHOULD LOVE AN INANIMATE OBJECT. I need to play with variables such as products, duration of drying time and clipping, but it dried quickly with virtually no frizz.

    It cuts way down on drying time, of course (I've never liked diffusers so I've always air-dried) but I was held captive in my chair. I read a fashion magazine and pretended to be at the salon. But if you're sitting at your vanity for a long period of time, you could just wheel the dryer up behind your seat and dry as your put on makeup, etc. I don't wear much makeup so I imagine I will be reading or checking my email most mornings.
    *3B, medium/fine, normal porosity, normal elasticity, shoulder-length when dry.
