I never used a styler when I still flat ironed my hair (obviously), and now I'm wearing my hair naturally curly since the beginning of March and ever since I have used mousse or gel after every "rewetting" (which is like 2 or 3 times a week for me).
I'm willing to try conditioner only method, but I'm a bit scared that my waves (am 2cish) will appear straight without stylers and so on...

Do you still plop/diffuse when you do conditioner only?
And doesn't diffusing without mousse/gel disrupt your curls?
