If you diffuse, do you use the Hot Sock or a regular 'bowl'-type diffuser attachment? I have the diffuser that looks like a bowl with fingers inside. I was especially wanting to know from those who have tried both, but prefer one over the other for some reason?

Also, I saw a 'Hot-Sock' knockoff at Sally's the other day, called 'mitt-diffuser'. It was only 3.99, but it looked like it would cause your hair to stick to it? Has anyone bought this and tried it?

And if you only air-dry (after plopping, or scrunching with towel of choice) is it because you're afraid of adding any damage to your hair?
