How to dry hair faster- curly in need of help!
 
Okay right, so i have to wash my hair in the morning and I was just wondering, any tips on how to make your hair dry faster. Obviously i use a diffuser, but after applying product (tresseme naturals as a leave in, and pantene curl defining mousse) would i then be able to twist it up in a microfiber towel or would this majorly make my hair look frizzy, smush up my curls, and everything else? or... do people twist their hair up when they get out the shower, allow it to dry in a towel for about 10-15 mintues and then apply product? whatever, i'm up for anything, as long as my hair looks great, and not wet when i step out the door! please answer, curly in need of help!

ps low porosity, loose curls underneath, 2c/3a on top (I think...)

I squeeze the water out my hair wrap in a tshirt for about 10min then apply products and put my hair in a dry tshirt for another 10. Diffuse or air dry the rest I have low porosity hair as well

My hair used to take HOURS...I've tried t-shirts, microfiber, blah blah. They would not dry it enough so diffusing would take forever then finishing with air drying took even longer still. I took a chance and bought the Curls Like Us towels and WOWZA!!!!! I use those, then diffuse in 3-4 sections until about 75-80% dry (2 minutes each section - I use a timer), then air dry...doing this routine it finishes drying within maybe an hour.

I need to look into this because I was so frustrated with my lp drying time yesterday. I usually wash at night but when I wash during the day it is such a pain and I hate going out with wet hair.

I squeeze out at much water as possible, apply my products, scrunch it around and get more water out, plop for 10-20 mins or so then diffuse in sections until mostly dry. Since I cut my hair shorter my drying time has gone WAY down, but I think the key is to get out as much water as possible, if your hair tolerates it.
