I know crunch is often a good thing while hair is drying because it holds the curls' shape, prevents frizz etc and I know you're supposed to wait to until your hair is 100% dry to SOTC.

My hair takes 5-6 hours to air dry completely (2-3 hours if I diffuse the heavy water out) and most days I need to get on with my day and am not home the hours it takes my hair to dry.

Does anyone else have this issue? Do you go out with crunchy hair and SOTC when it's totally dry? Or do you SOTC at home even if its still damp?

Diffusing helps slightly but my hair is still somewhat wet 3 hours after.
