I've used the soft bonnet dryer before. I won't buy a hard bonnet dryer simply because I can't sit still long enough for it to be worth my while. At least with the soft bonnet, you have a tube that allows you to move around slightly.

Anyway...I like it okay. It dries my hair more uniformly. I don't use it often, however, simply because it's more time consuming than diffusing.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
