I only diffuse if I'm in a rush. I haven't noticed any differences in the way my hair feels or in the look of the actual coil in my hair--BUT it does tend to give me a little more shrinkage. I prefer wide/flat diffuser attachments over the longer and more narrow ones.
My biggest challenge is trying to use the concentrator nozzle to stretch my hair after diffusing. I think that requires some hair dryer diva magic that I don't have.
I use the T3 Tourmaline Featherweight Hair Dryer with diffuser.
This is the dryer I use to diffuse, too (I love it). The actual diffuser attachment is just a generic, universal diffuser that I got from my local, beauty supply store for like $5. I only diffuse in the winter and/or if I'm in a rush...
Thanks ladies for the input! I ended up getting a T3 blow dryer...it's nice but my hair still won't dry in a timely fashion, lol. I was in a hurry a bit before though, I'm going to watch more videos on YT for tips. I am most likely just impatient...
People should be willing to stand by the things they say. Or they shouldn't say them. If your opinion can't stand in the light of day...maybe it should stay in the dark...in your head?

I actually sat under my hot tools table top hair dryer today after washing and putting product in my hair. I have to say I may be doing this a lot more often. I'm so over leaving the house with wet flat hair and waiting all day and more for it to dry. I sat under the hood dryer for a total of 15 mins and towel blotted the ends, hair was completely dry in 1-2 hours after I left the house and is less frizzy at roots than normal!
Current State: Just bc'd but still growing out heat damage in the front that goes to the root
High Density, Medium Porosity
Length: Grazing SL curly with tons of layers
Goal: MBL curly? 2019?
Doing what I want when I want!
