Blow drying hair curly..Watch

Scrunch in your mousse (or other product)
Scrunch out extra water with a towel
Use this method to dry:
If one must use a hair dryer, a diffuser should be attached to the end of hte nozzle. A diffuser will diffuse the air from the blow dryer, so the air stream hits a larger surface area and is more gentle, so the curls won't be blown around.
The two different types of diffusers that I'm familiar with are the sock diffuser and the bowl diffuser. My personal favorite is a bowl diffuser with fingers (the one I currently use is from Sally Beauty Supply, but I've had several through the years and, as long as it's huge like the one in the link, they've all worked equally well). Since the "fingers" scrunch my curls as I'm drying, I wind up with far tighter ringlets than I would otherwise.
However, diffusers only work if one has the patience to use them correctly. First thing in the morning, before I've had my coffee, I absolutely do not.
Bowl diffusers should just be used to support your curl while your hair is drying. The best step-by-step diffusing instructions I've ever seen were written by username "pixiecurl" on naturallycurly.com, so I will quote her here:
"here's the method i've found for maximizing curls/volume and minimizing frizz:
flip hair upside down and put hair from front middle section (closest to forehead in the bowl of the diffuser, and hold bowl all the way against scalp so it is "scrunching" your curls for you. THEN i turn the dryer on, pressing the cool shot whenever it gets too hot for my scalp. i then TURN IT OFF before removing the bowl from my scalp. then i go to the front right section and repeat, then front left, then flip right side up and get the underside, then flip back upside down and get anywhere i missed. i don't diffuse until 100% dry, and it doesn't look quite right until it's finished airdrying all the way and i flip upside down and scrunch again.
the key is only having the blowdryer on when the bowl is against your scalp because this minimizes your hair getting blown around and thus minimizes frizz."
Sedusa was developed to allow people to be able to dry their hair and create natural curls and movement with ease in a short space of time.The spirals inside the Sedusa encourage the natural structure of your hair to follow the path of least resistance. Even on straight hair this means the spirals cause the hair to bend, move, kink or curl. The amount of curl produced will depend upon each individual's hair type & texture, thus creating your own individual look.On naturally wavy, curly or permed hair the spirals encourage the curl to be more defined. The results are even better when Sedusa is used with a curl enhancing product, for example a mousse, styling crème or gel.The deep bowl design enables the user to place all their hair inside the bowl whilst drying. The hair benifits from drying in a controlled environment which prevents it from swelling or bushing out. The heat produced through the appertures does not disperse into the air, as with a conventional diffuser, but circulates inside the bowl to dry the hair more quickly.
