Which causes less frizz?
 
I read that letting curls airdry for the last 20 minutes or so causes less frizz than diffusing all the way. Then I read the reverse, that making sure hair is completely dry by diffusing eliminates most frizz.

I've read these different results on youtube. What is your experience?

I would probably diffuse till about 85% dry, then air dry the rest.

Kaj that seems to be what most people do, and what I do, so that's why I was surprised by the youtubers who said that causes frizz. Thanks for the input.

I think I read the same thing as you, curlypearl. It really confused me.

I can only diffuse enough to get the dripping wet off. Anymore and I'm Diana Ross. I think it also depends on what the styling products are.

I agree with everyone else, if I diffuse until completely dry my hair is going to be very frizzy.

Think I'm alone here but I airdry first (an hour is good for me) then diffuse until completely dry. If I do it the other way around it's frizz city for me!

I air dry just long enough for my gel to set up. If I diffuse any sooner I get frizz. Not enough gel and I get frizz to.

I think as far as airdry, it depends on how much of friction ur wet hair is going get either from you touching your hair or your clothes friction on hair, if that makes any sense.

if you are a person who would touch hair often, you might be better off diffusing to about 80% then air dry.

A very careful, conscious person would get frizz free hair from airdry, I guess

Since I have low porosity hair...I feel that diffusing allows my hair shaft to open up and I can actually absorb my LI/stylers...Also by diffusing it allows my hair to "set" and provides more "durability" to my wave pattern..I get about 1-2 inch shrinkage with diffusing than if I completely air dry..It also helps to add volume at my crown...So frizz or not.. I get better outcomes in other ways by diffusing...

Somehow you managed to find photos of her with very defined curls. Lol but Her hair was usually frizzy, especially during the 80s and early 90s, not a good look for someone who doesn't want frizz.

Korkscrew 01-20-2013 07:28 PM

Ms. Ross has big, curly hair and sometimes what people cause "frizz" is hair that's simply curlier than theirs, and hopefully on a site that caters to all curl types, people can be more sensitive to that.
