I diffuse everytime I wash which is about every 3 days. This is how I diffuse and it works for me. Except I don't twist my hair all the way around my head, sometimes just the clumps near my face. I also don't need to use the hairdryer to "calm my hair down" post diffuse. I just use my fingers to arrange the out of place curls. Then I'm done with my hair.
This series has other videos on curly hair, but I can't attest to them as I do not do them. I just diffuse this way.
