I just started diffusing again (3 days ). I used to strictly air-dry because I got too much frizz. I got a new cut on Friday - finally found a curl-knowledgable stylist!! - and now I can finally diffuse! I use a bowl diffuser with the fingers. I tried the "sock" type a long time ago, but got more frizz and tossed it. It's not really a fair comparison though. Wasn't this extremely helpful
