Default do I need a hairdryer (and diffuser I guess?)

Hi curlies,

do I need a hairdryer? Would it be benneficial for my hair to use heat when I have conditioner in my hair? Because it's confusing my, heat would be good to use when you have conditioner in your hair (because your hair get more hydrated?) but curly hair can also damage because of heat? What should I do?

And what kind of hairdryer and diffuser is best for my hair?

Because your hair is porous, you should not need heat for regular conditioning, and your hair is more prone to heat damage. (In contrast, low-po hair generally does better with heat - it is less prone to damage, it needs the help of heat to condition and to dry faster.) So I would be inclined to say you shouldn't need a dryer.

My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
