Default Pixie Curl?

Ok, I have been a lurker here for a few weeks and want to start by thanking all of you for your recommendations. My hair has never looked as good as it does today. For 3 weeks now I have been cone and sulphate free, although I confess that I haven't convinced myself to give up shampooing completely. Today is day 4 without shampooing. I am trying to see at which point I can't stand it and then I will shampoo.

My question is this, what do you guys mean when you say "diffuse with Pixie Curl Method?". I have been to the Jessicurl website and currently use a finger diffuser as shown in her videos. I dry my hair to about 75-80% and that is only during the week when I can't stand to go to work with wet hair.

The PixieCurl method (named after the NCer who described it) involved gathering the hair into the diffuser, bringing it against the head and then turning on the dryer. Turn the dryer off after a few moments, move to another section of hair, and turn it back on. The idea is that the dryer is never moving while it's on. For many people, it minimizes frizz.

Thank you for the reply. I actually have tried it that way and just don't have the patience. Where I currently am is that in my stubborn areas, I use the pixie curl method and for the rest of my head, I use the Jessicurl methodology.
