Mind if I join too? I gave up my flat iron about 2 months ago, and I haven't had a blow dryer, diffuser or otherwise, near my hair in about 5 months. I only use it when I'm trying to quick dry for coloring my hair...which I'm stepping away from as well.
When I was in high school, many many moons ago, I used a dryer every morning. It took me a really long time to finally figure out how to care for my hair, The flat iron I used for a while for the whole straight bang/curly back look, but it TOTALLY fried my bangs, even with the tourmaline plates. So, I cut off the damage and gave the iron to my wavy roommate.
