Tested some of this stuff out yesterday:
Wetting: took about 25 seconds in the shower to get it wet enough to low-poo (my shower head runs about average pressure)
Drying: Scrunched with a microfiber towel for about 90 seconds, then plopped for 15-20 minutes. Hair was about 90% dry when I went to bed 1 1/2hrs later, and bone dry 7 hours after that when I woke up.
Chemicals: never been chemically treated (dyes, straightening, etc)
Heat: Occasionally used. Probably 5-10 times a year. More since I've started diffusing (on warm) more.
Brushing: before CG, usually got brushed once a day when I put it up.
Weather for last night's drying test:
Temp: 82 F
Dew Point: 73 F
Relative Humidity: 74%
What are your thoughts? Is 1 1/2hrs normal drying time for average width, average density hair?
As a side note, has anyone ever looked at their hair under a microscope to discover porosity? I did some Internet searching on the type of microscope needed, but was just curious about you all...
