I use a bowl diffuser because that's what I have, but I think I want to get a hot sock diffuser. Jess used one to style my hair in Austin, and I thought it seemed a lot simpler to use! I always pop off the end of my bowl diffuser while trying to dry my hair.
I don't diffuse close to dry, but take around an hour to fully air dry after I stop diffusing. Time-wise, that gets my hair dry looking about when I get to work in the morning, because I diffuse before I get dressed, do makeup, etc. I also use high heat/high air but don't hold the diffuser in one place too long, and since I'm not drying all the way I'm not overdrying, obviously.
The pews never miss a sermon but that doesn't get them one step closer to Heaven.
But at least the pews never attend yoga!
