Tips for using diffuser

I bought a good hairdryer after my stylist recommended. I don't like to go to work with completely wet hair so I need something. I am unsure of how to diffuse without getting frizz. I tried using today and yesterday and let's just say my hair is in a ponytail. I also don't like volume, so is there a way to diffuse without it getting big and more curly? I only need to dry it maybe halfway and then I put heat on in car to dry rest :) thank you!

    I think Pixie Curl's method is the best to dry with no frizz. Check out this thread:

    You're welcome. If you find you're getting too much volume you can diffuse with your head right side up instead of upside down. You can also start at the crown of your head and work your way down. That way you allow gravity and the weight of the water/product in your hair to pull your curls and eliminate some of the volume.

    Thanks that's a great tip starting at crown. I tried the method today for a few minutes with much better results! I do know to omit the flipping over because I hate volume LOL. But turning the dryer off before moving is very helpful. Tomorrow I'll try starting at crown, thanks again :)
