Is it the case that low porosity hair takes forever to dry? This has been true for me my whole life, but I always thought it was just because I have so much hair, but I see girls on hair with hair just as thick that dries in like an hour!

I diffused my hair for about 5-7 minutes this morning after t-shirt blotting around 6:30 am, and at 10:30 am my hair had just barely dried enoug to SOTC, and even then it was pushing it. My hair actually hates the diffuser when t comes to frizziness, so I prefer to air dry, but sometimes I am not dry until lunch time and it makes me a little crazy to not touch my hair for that long!

Anyone have any non-heat drying tips or tricks? I can't wash the night before because that both leaves me with still damp hair and hair that bends in funny directions (even wet pineappled or plopped), so I just have to rewet and then I'm back where I started!
