Diffuser while plopping?

The other day it occurred to me - suppose I diffuse my hair a little while my hair's in a t-shirt plop?

Has anyone tried this? I feel like it might protect my hair a little whilst blow drying?

I think I'll wait til the weekend to try it, so I don't have a disaster before work.

    Great minds think alike!

    I've been using my hairdryer (without diffuser, as have found t-shirt protects it enough) to heat my hair as I plop.

    After getting fed up with the severe arm-ache, I've bought a bonnet attachment for my hairdryer which arrived today and I'll be trying it out later. Will also be good for heating DT on my hair, methinks.

    Looking forward to seeing that thread Jess the Mess, if you manage to find it :)

    Hey - thanks for all the feedback. My first post besides introducing myself so it was nice to have some responses! Thanks for the threads, dominicana! I'm kind of overwhelmed at the moment by all the information...

    I tried using the drier while plopping, but since I did about 3 things differently (ACV rinse, clumping method, ditched the Deva Fuser and went back to my trusty old diffuser) it wasn't a very scientific experiment.

    I had better hair today than I have in weeks and weeks, though, so...
