My favorite diffuser and dryer for curly hair


Full Of Hot Air  my diffuser shopping list









My absolute favorite Diffuser - fits on most dryers, including the Deva Dryer. This diffuser really helps encourage curl. I've been using this one forever and always go 
back to it! I also Love their dryer and have been using it for years. VIP members can see my full dryer review on the member site! I also give my seal of approval to all of the dryers pictured below - they are ones I have personally used. 

The links below are to amazon - I am an amazon affiliate, which means that if you purchase one of them I will get a small %, and it doesn't change the price for you. When I discovered I could do this, i jumped on it because i literally write reviews and link to amazon all the time anyway. win.win. 



Solano Diffuser


 
The Deva Dryer is great for lifting/drying the root and scalp area, I prefer the solano diffuser attachment to encouraging curl at the ends. I don't feel like the devafuser is the best way to encourage curls for sway/wavy - it helps but it's not my #1pick. 

 





This thing looks hilarious, but actually works in a pinch! Especially if you are traveling, or don't have space for a regular hooded dryer!!!  I use it to dry my extensions and to set flexirods. 






If your curls frizz when you diffuse them, you need to avoid direct heat from diffusing, or prefer the air dry look but want to save time a hard top dryer is a MUST.

coconut oil treatment & apple cider vinegar rinse for curly hair

I'm a little obsessed with coconut oil right now.  I've been using it as a "pre-conditioner" in the salon, I melt anywhere from 2 tablespoons to 1/2 cup of coconut oil (depending on how much i need to really saturate the hair from root to end, then apply it to dry hair.

If you do this at home, you can do it hours before you plan to wash it - I sleep with it in my hair and wash it out with Loreal Professional Delicate Color Sulfate Free Shampoo the next morning. If you're a no-poo-er, I suggest using the Ouidad Cleansing Oil instead.  You can condition your hair as usual, or, for extra awesomeness, follow with an apple cider vinegar rinse  use up to half acv to half water, or try using 2 parts water to 1 part acv.  Let that site for at least 2 minutes, RINSE WELL.  Be SO careful not to get it in your eyes, it burns like a BITCH. It's not harsh on your hair, though - the acidity of the vinegar is actually very gentle on the cuticle helping to close it down as …
