Time: Air-dry vs. Diffusing

How much time do you slice off by diffusing instead of air-drying? Just curious
Curl Type: 2c-3a, Medium thickness, Normal Porosity
Weekly Low-poo: TJ Pure Castile Soap

Life has many choices. Eternity has two. What's yours?
About 4 1/2 hours, and my hair is only chin length.
CG since June/09
3a/b extremely thick, coarse, porous
Loving AOHR, Biolage Conditioning Balm, KCCC.
Not much, and it gives me a lot of frizz. With air drying, my hair is only slightly damp (invisibly so) within half an hour after getting to work and within an hour it's totally dry. So that's about 1.5-1.75 hrs total drying time.
3A low/medium porosity, medium texture

Current products:
Stylers: HE Tousle Me Softly, Condition 3-in-1 Mousse
Conditioners: Terax Crema, Mill Creek Botanicals Henna Conditioner
Cleanser: DevaCurl NoPoo

I let my hair air for for 1/2 hour to set curls while I eat my b-fast then I diffuse under 10 minutes. If I air dry only it could take 2 hours or more even with shoulder length thin hair.
Type: 3a, fine, thin, low porosity Water/Climate: soft/ marine Washes: water w/washcloth, shikakai, clay Condition: Style:Seamollient, CurlsPFCCP, Miracurl, Gel-les'c, CK; rudeechick's super soaker method; blot, air dry 30 min; diffuse Also: coconut oil

It takes absolutely no extra time out of me for my hair to airdry. I let it airdry while I'm doing other things. I would actually have to devote more time if I diffused/blow dry.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.


3a/3b
it saves me about 3 hours. i <3 my diffuser
Multi-textured head! 3a w/ some 3c, medium to high porosity, medium to coarse texture, dry!

My current favorites: Suave naturals shampoo, Suave coconut, Organix argan and moroccan oil conditioner, GFTN, LALMG, FSG <3!!

Not a huge fan of CG :/
Toooooo many hours to count!!
I would have to be on a beach in Florida in order for my hair to dry. It will be wet underneath and at the roots if I don't diffuse. And OMG I cannot stand the feeling of wet hair!
I wash my hair at night and sleep on it, but I don't mind having wet hair. It really saves a lot of time, and is great for people who hate diffusing (diffusing makes my hair frizzy, even when I pixie curl). When I wake up, my hair is dry and ready to go!
OMG I save FOREVER by diffusing. I've only been CG for like 2 weeks now, and this was my first weekend where I could actually play hair scientist and have the time to air dry. Today, I plopped for about 20 minutes, and air dried for 3 HOURS! It's still not compleyely dry but it's dry enough to gel down some frizzies. With my diffusing in the morning before work, I plop for 10- diffuse for about 20 minutes until 50-60% dry, and then air dry the rest of the way- which is about an hour.

BTW- Can I say that I LOVE weekends- I can try so many things with my hair!!!
Today I learned how to clip, and I feel ah-some!!
