I TRIED A DIFFUSER ON MY TYPE 4 WASH AND GO
I NEVER THOUGHT I'D USE A DIFFUSER
Let me be frank. I didn’t think 4c hair had a reason to use a diffuser. Furthermore, before this year, I’d never imagined getting amazing results from a wash and go – period. I was like many type 4 naturals whom dreaded detangling so much that any style that encouraged having the hair in its natural state looked like a nightmare waiting to happen. Also — when is the last time you’ve seen a mainstream brand showcase a 4c wash and go in their marketing campaigns? I’ll wait. Needless to say, I’ve never found a reason to own a diffuser attachment until today.
I have low porosity hair and Anthony Dickey’s wash and go method (check out my tutorial) leaves my hair soaking wet and takes two to three FULL days to dry. There’s no way I’m walking around looking like a rendition of that scary chick from The Grudge movie. So I needed something that would maintain the coil definition I worked so hard for, but dried my hair fast.
It looks like I’ve found my solution in this diffuser! It was noisy, but fast. Save the mishaps with my apartment’s power circuit, I’m a fan. I think next I’ll try a sit under dryer to compare the two.
P.S. My blow dryer is fine. It’s this cheap over priced apartment that’s got to go! lol!

Granted, I didn’t get it all right. I’ve gotten many comments on Youtube suggesting that I don’t scrunch my hair at all, but I think I’ve done a great job. I love the option of choosing to enhance my shrinkage or my length. Do you use diffusers as well?
