I put 3-5 hours. On hot days less, cool days more, but on average about 3 hours.

I put 3-5 hours, it takes usually about 3. Less if I use creams, more if I use gels.

My hair is really short now, so it takes about 2-3 hours. When it's long, it's normally 3 or 4.

Yeah, like 3 or 4 hours normally. I'm a diffuser girl though & now w/ my shorter hair I'm wondering how long it'll take now?

Without any diffusing, about 6 hours. I usually diffuse a little which takes it down to 4 or 5.

I have about 6-8 inches of hair and when it's loaded down it takes about 1.5 hours for mostly all of the moisture to be drawn out. Completly dry after about 2 hours.

My hair takes between 3 to 5 hours to become completely dry when airdrying it.

I would also say around 3-5 with airdrying. Although if I put it up in a bum when wet, it can take over a day to dry.

Probably about 3? Except on really humid days, it's usually pretty much dry by the time I get to work.

about 90-100 minutes... but I always wring out water with my hands and then blot the ends or wherever it is too wet/drippy.

I voted 5-7. It looks pretty much dry after 3 or 4 hours, but it's still damp at the nape of my neck for a few hours longer. My hair is super-thick.

I sleep on my hair wet (like an accordian on my microfiber towel, over my silk pillowcase) and it's super thick too, so I had to vote for 8+ because it's still damp underneath in the am.
