I tried this method again today (not the updo, just the product application on dry hair method) and had another success day !

Me too LavenderCurls. I never would have guessed this would work. But I only added the mousse after it was dry and then diffused the mousse dry. I wonder if the mousse will create dryness if I do this daily?? hmmmmmm

Does anyone actually use a diffuser like this? Does it make the hair more curly or just frizzy?

I don't know , but I'm wondering if this product to dry hair application method would work with adding a cream and a gel.

You know, lots of comments were made here about how she diffused. I tend to diffuse like her . For me, how my hair turns out mostly depends on the products I've used. For me, the frizz factor depends probably 95% on the weather and/or season.

Anyway, you're not supposed to move the dry around like that, but then again Jessie seems to move hers around on her videos. I always start out trying to not move it much but I get impatient and away it goes!

Yes, my good intentions go out the window. I really try to do not move it around and to shut it off as I go to another area but patience is not one of my attibutes.

I keep mine moving all the time, too. I just feel like I'm really frying my hair if I leave the dryer in one place too long without moving it. I don't flip my hair around much - just the diffuser.

Right, and maybe the hair flipping is what the comments were about more than the diffuser moving around .

I think it was about the diffuser, but also patience definitely is not one of my virtues. I keep trying the Pixiecurl method and it just doesn't work for me because I can't be still -- just like a little kid. Thinking I was a straightie for so many years, I still haven't broken the habit of thinking the dryer has to be constantly moving.
