Default How to properly diffuse

I haven't used one in almost 10 years. Any new tricks, or any don'ts? Thanks

I think the most popular method here (me included) is the pixiecurl method (so named after a nc.com member). Here's a good explanation:

There's also the sock diffuser, the devafuser, and awhile ago people were raving about this conair curl fusion dryer, which is just a completely flat diffuser. HTH!

Thumbs up

I tried the 'pixie' method for the first time today and it worked very well for me. When I diffuse, this is going to be how I do it from now on.

Lol, she's not long-lost. She mainly posts on the non-hair discussion boards. But her method is awesome!
