    I put 3-5 hours. On hot days less, cool days more, but on average about 3 hours.

    I put 3-5 hours, it takes usually about 3. Less if I use creams, more if I use gels.
    2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.

    3-5 hours which is why school is a pain! My hair is either straight or pulled back for everyday during the school year

    My hair is really short now, so it takes about 2-3 hours. When it's long, it's normally 3 or 4.
    modified CG since July 2004.

    Yeah, like 3 or 4 hours normally. I'm a diffuser girl though & now w/ my shorter hair I'm wondering how long it'll take now?
  • KeeweeKeewee Posts: 1,376Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    probably 3 hours, but I always diffuse so its more like an hour.
  • SuZenSuZen Posts: 1,595Registered Users
    Without any diffusing, about 6 hours. I usually diffuse a little which takes it down to 4 or 5.

    I have about 6-8 inches of hair and when it's loaded down it takes about 1.5 hours for mostly all of the moisture to be drawn out. Completly dry after about 2 hours.

    I would also say around 3-5 with airdrying. Although if I put it up in a bum when wet, it can take over a day to dry. :evil:

    Probably about 3? Except on really humid days, it's usually pretty much dry by the time I get to work.

    about 90-100 minutes... but I always wring out water with my hands and then blot the ends or wherever it is too wet/drippy.

    3-5 definitely, closer to 3 on hot days. I don't know what I'm going to do in the winter!!
    Extremely fine 2b/3a. My frizz has tamed considerably but, I still have my "moments."

    I voted 5-7. It looks pretty much dry after 3 or 4 hours, but it's still damp at the nape of my neck for a few hours longer. My hair is super-thick.

    Changed because the "number in place of a word" thing was bugging my no-longer-14-year-old self.

    I sleep on my hair wet (like an accordian on my microfiber towel, over my silk pillowcase) and it's super thick too, so I had to vote for 8+ because it's still damp underneath in the am.

    I voted 1 to 3 hours, mind you I diffuse just a little, If I don't the top of my hair takes a bit longer, but I have no body, especially on the top.

    a hodgepodge of hair types possibly 3a. last "big" chop July 2005

    I'm happy I'm not alone with the 8 hour drying time. :)
