I have bra strap length hair too. When I'm using Deva products, I leave some One C in then scrunch the Angell into my hair in the shower while it's still soaking wet. I then use a microfiber towel to scrunch the excess water out. Paper towels do work awesome too. Then I plop while I'm doing my make-up and checking my e-mail, etc. I then put clips in at the roots and aim the car vent at my hair on the way to work (about a 20-30 minute ride).

I've found that putting Angell into soaking wet hair really does make a difference. I've also found that I get more frizz if I diffuse while using Angell which is why I go the car vent route.
2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.
