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?
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
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 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...
2b/c CG since 8/12
I have low porosity and fine/med texture. Easily weighed down and VERY frizzy crown, with straighter under layers

Low-poo:TJ TTT, CJ GCS
LI/RO/DC: CK Satin Roots,Sevi Pumpkin, SSI Okra reconstructor, CJ SAC,CJ RM
Stylers: AG Recoil, JC SS

3b/c, medium-coarse, low porosity, high density
HG: Jessicurl Too Shea and Kinky Curly Curling Custard
Shampoo: nonsulfate shampoo and Suave Naturals sulfate shampoo when needed
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.
