I've had this happen to me - my hair is not as long as yours (near MBL) but long enough that it can get caught in the back of the dryer. I realized that it was not the section I was diffusing but hair next to it that was hanging down and getting caught. So now when I diffuse, I try to keep the back of the dryer away from my head - this means I don't diffuse upside down as much, but more just tip my head to the side so that the rest of my hair isn't hanging down over the dryer.

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
