Default Bonnet Hair Dryer?

So yesterday I diffused my hair with the bowl diffuser, and it just seemed to be a big, dry frizzy mess.

I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with bonnet hair dryers? I can certainly see the appeal, almost like plopping with heat, AND my arms won't tire! Or, they could just be another let-down product/appliance to add to my graveyard of products that didn't work...But that probably won't stop me from buying it, I'm a product junkie

And info would be great! (Also, a product junkie trying to stay on a budget)

Default bonnet hair dryer

U have given me an idea I have a bhairdryer. Have tried it with my curly hair use to use rollers to take out the curls and dry it. So next time I cowash and have some time I will use it. I think it would b better than difusing cuz ur doing it all at once. If u try before I get a chance, just cowashed yeatrday let me know how it does for u. Im gonna try it and illl let u know! Thanks for the lightbulb moment lisa45 3b course length waist when wet. Ttus

Hi,
I purchased the Ion ( I believe it's called that) from Sally's. It was referred to on here as the "RTD2" bonnet dryer (if you want to search it). It worked well for me, however it died after a year and three months. Since researching if Sally's would do anything about it, I've read a lot of reviews about other people having similar issues. So, I would stay away from that one. It has a blue bonnet, white base. I am back to using my mom's old (from the 70's) bonnet dryer and it works great.
If you want root lift, you may have to do some pinning. I always scrunch out my crunch with my diffuser once my hair has cooled down from the bonnet dryer.

I have this one from folica.com. I love it! And I found a coupon code so I got free shipping and 20% off or something like that.

I have the same one as Cheetara (on her recommendation) and love it. Use it all of the time.

I don't think it is the dryer necessarily. Since you are just recently CG it takes the hair a while to adjust. I would focus on finding the correct products.

Also when diffusing don't touch your hair just hold the dryer in each area for about 30 seconds then move it.

Most of my frizz comes from over touching my hair.
