I have the Deva dryer/fuser. I think our hair is about the same length--didn't you pm me about that? Anyway, I use this as a first step after scrunching with my curl towels. I only do the underneath portions. Stick the hand right into my hair and keep it there for a minute or two. It really helps root lift on the top.
