That way sounds so much easier and better for the hair! I just haven't been able to blow mine out without it getting huge and unmanageable.
Another thing I'll do is on day two curly hair, skip the flat ironing part that I described earlier, and just take chunks of hair and curl them with a curling iron. I find that smooths the hair but keeps the volume (verses flat ironing). Also much faster and not as damaging.
