Just as a heads up, brains do extenuate the drying period.

+1 to her advice especially regarding the diffuser. I also use a diffuser to about 80% dry and it cuts down the overall drying time by a lot. I diffuse in 3-4 sections, two minutes each. I also use Curls Like Us cloths to scrunch before drying and they decreased my drying time even further.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
