Best diffuser for curly hair?

So I am interested in a hair diffuser. I heard finger diffusers work best in helping your curls. Is this true and does it need to be deep? I was looking at the babyliss pro tourmaline finger diffuser but not sure if it's deep enough? If by any suggestions? Im actually looking to buy the hair dryer with a good diffuser but yet to find one so I'll probably be purchasing separate unless anyone knows of a good one

    It's very dependent on how you want your hair :) If you want voluminous hair you should buy a diffuser with a deep cup/head. But if you don't care about volume and just want your hair to dry you can buy one with a flat surface.

    Okay thanks! So how does it turn out with a finger tip diffuser do you know?

    Almost all diffusers are finger tip diffusers. :) One of the only exceptions to the rule is the DevaFuser, which is hand shaped, but I recommend a deep, big bowl shape because 1) it's very easy to use 2) you can dry a lot of hair once and 3) scrunching all the hair up into the causes more volume and more curl. I feel like a flat diffuser would be hard to use because you can't cup the curls, and they would fall all over the place. (Just personally.)

    I don't have any personal recommendations, but it's fun to go to ULTA and look at all the different ones. I just have a Revlon 1875 dryer.

    the hairdryer I have now came with a finger diffuser but before that I had one from Walmart that was nice and big and it was cheap - maybe five dollars

    Hey waterlily716, i have watched a lot of your videos and I was wondering if the diffuser you use is the one you got with your revlon? I live in Canada and I can get that dryer for about 20 bucks and I've seen a lot of good reviews

    No I think it actually came from another revlon dryer. The one that comes with it is good too through.

    I need a new hair dryer and I read a lot of positive reviews about the revlon one waterlily mentioned.

    I'm going to buy some stuff online by the end of the month, I'll add this to give it a try!

    thank you
