Default Diffusing and Volume

It seems like I get a ton of volume when diffusing. Is this normal? I want it to look like it does when I airdry. Are there any special "tricks"? I recently purchased a very cheap blowdryer/diffuser from WalMart. It's called "Revlon Chrome Styler 1875 Watt Dryer". It's not ceramic or ionic or tourmaline or anything special. Does ceramic/ionic/tourmaline really make a difference in volume? My hair wasn't frizzy - just too much volume.

How are you diffusing? Are you diffusing upside down? Or are you touching your hair with the diffuser? etc. . . .

I mainly stand straight up and do not touch my hair. I use medium heat and the low setting. Towards the very end, I bend over to get the underneath dry.

My stylist, who is a wizard at diffusing, swears by ionic dryers. She says you can get the hair dryer without frizz. I do like the one I got after she told me that -- not expensive, a Vidal Sassoon one from Ulta.

She showed me to lift the curls with the fingers and hold them on top of the head, then move to another area. It makes it curlier. (I'm a 3a, so always looking for more curl, but not everyone wants that.)
