I talked with my stylist about diffusing yesterday, and he advised almost twirling the diffuser into the hair, then holding it (to set) for a few seconds. I tried it this morning and it worked well on my canopy.

For the record, this was advised for fine, porpous, type 2 hair with layers. Not sure it would work for all.
