I blot with a towel (regular one) until it is wetter than damp but certainly not dripping, then let it sit for a while, anywhere from 10 mintures to 30 minutes depending on my schedule that morning, and then diffuse with a bowel type diffuser, sort of cupping my hair in it and pushing up toward the scalp and then wiggling a bit

What I would like to discuss is what temperature you all diffuse at? I seem to get more curl diffusing on hot than medium but usually choose medium because it is gentler on my hair. Actually I usually start out on hot just to speed up the drying, then switch to medium for a good while and then to cool to sort of cool my hair down and set the curls/waves.

2a?, using MOP C system hydrating poo, Elucence conditioner, B&A Biomineral gel......off and on results....rely most on my curling iron for help
