    I think clipping your roots up and plopping is as good as it gets when air drying.

    Air drying is the healthiest but even Lorraine uses a diffuser on warm not hot heat setting sometimes.

    I never like my Day 1 hair much. Always seems lifeless and flat. A couple of things have helped with that - double plopping and pineappling. Botticellibabe started a thread called double plopping if you want further info on that.

    As for the pineappling, after my hair is completely dry, I will often pineapple my hair for a half hour or so. When I take it down it is much more voluminous than when I put it up. Probably one of those weird things that will work for me and no one else though. :goofy:

    I am sure that no heat whatsoever is the best thing for hair but I really only diffuse for about 10 minutes tops and its the only way for me to get decent volume and to get my curls to set. So I live with it. I also use high heat/low volume. I read/heard somewhere that using the dryer longer with medium heat is more damaging than less time on high heat. Dunno.:dontknow:

    Also helps when dry to tip upside down and give your hair a good shake. When I diffuse, I do it upside down for a short time on high heat.
