Question about soft hood dryer if you have one

curlypearlcurlypearl Posts: 11,970Registered Users Curl Novice
Is this better than a diffuser? Does it make a difference in how well your curls set compared with a diffuser?

I can't buy a hard hood dryer because I don't have the space for it or a proper place to set it up in terms of height.

I'm cross posting this in the general section. Thanks for any responses!

    I just got mine but I haven't tried it yet. I worry that it will be too hot and it might melt?? I might over react though.

    When you have tried it, will you please post back with your impressions? Do you like it, yes/no, and why.

    Thanks! :hello2:

    Just tried it on second day hair!!!
    Waaaaaaay better than diffusing. Less wonky curl shapes and not uncomfortable hot feeling. My curls were looser but that could be 2 things. I noticed only slight frizz.

    1.I dyed my hair yesterday and it needs some time to recover.
    2.Second day hair always lacks clumping and hold.

    Thanks for following-up KaZenner. I'm very tempted to get one! I know I'll cave in within the week.

    I hope I managed to give you info fast. Tried it yesterday on full wet hair. Omg zero frizz. I think I should have dried my hair a bit more and I had it for close to 15 minutes. I would say my hair was 50% dry.
