Help Me? Drying Curly Hair :) CLICK! You know you want to!

Recently I've been loving the Devacurl products! They make your hair smell good and my hair feels a million times healthier.... but there is one thing I HAVE NOT been loving... how long my hair takes to dry! I can wait all day but it still won't be dry and it will start to frizz in the back over time. Usually only the front dries (because its shorter) and that is the only part that looks good!

I have tried using a blow dryer and defuser (The devacurl one is the best I've tried!) but still I get too impatient and my hair never fully dries, so when I release the gel cast and my hair isn't dry it gets oily and frizzy and just gross. I am considering using a hooded hairdryer (One that rolls or that you set on the counter, whichever- is that what you call it?) to get my hair dry fast. I want to get the salon-like look that I got at devachan SO BAD! If you've been there you know what I mean, its so relaxing to just sit there in your robe playing on the iPad! Plus your hair looks perfect!

I feel embarrassed to order one because I think my family will think I've gone nuts, so Im only gonna do it if I know it will work! Somebody please give me some suggestions? Something not to expensive. Also does this damage your heat more than diffusing? Or is about the same? Also how long do you have to sit under it?

So basically.... hooded hair dryer suggestions (What brand, blah blah....)

PLEASE help me!

Thank youuu

You shouldn't diffuse until completely dry, or at least it is not recommended because there can be the infamous case of frizz. I love Devacurl products, but a lot of curlies who don't like it, for it has polyquats. Thus, polyquats can add to build-up which will potentially bring frizz when wet to dry. I would suggest either low-pooing or if that doesn't help rid of build-up, actually shampooing and finding products without polyquats.
High Porosity, Fine, Thin Density, Low Elasticity
Suave for co-wash and rinse out. SM restorative as leave in. Ogx mousse, la looks, la bella, and cantu natural for stylers. Clarify and low poo once a month.
Curls
Look up pixiecurl diffusing. It really works. My hair takes forever to air dry, and because it's windy here I really can't go outside with it wet (or at least not until the gel cast starts to set), so I have to diffuse. I can pixiecurl enough in about 15-20 minutes that it only takes another hour to finish air drying, at least in summer. In winter, I'll probably have to diffuse a little longer. I get no frizz with this method.
3a/b, fine, normal porosity, high density

RO: YTB
LI: Suave TC + CJ CCCC, brushed through with Denman
Styling: Smooth in LAL Wet Look gel, scrunch, and plop 10 minutes, then add a little more gel, cover with silk cap, and sleep on it
Refresh: 3:1 water/Suave mix as needed
Just tell your family you want your hair to dry faster so you can get on with your day, anyone can relate to that. You don't have to say you want to look like you walked out of Devachan (which we on NC all understand!). There was a thread very recently where a soft hood attachment for a hairdryer was raved about, did you run an advanced search?

Are you clipping so air gets to the underlayers at the back? As far as scrunching too early, that is simply a bad habit to break, avoid mirrors whilst drying if that helps.
