10 Diffuser Attachments That’ll Upgrade The Way You Dry Your Curls

Fresh out of the shower, your curls are living their best lives. You've fed them the best deep conditioners, removed all knots and tangles, and scrunched them to the gods. Your definition is amazing, but there's just one problem: dry time.
When your hair is wet and prepped, the work truly begins. For some, air-drying is ideal, but for others, hours of time between wet and dry hair isn't. You have places to be! Luckily, the right diffuser will give you defined, perfectly dried hair without the damage or disruption of your curl pattern (not to mention frizz). "For curly hair, you need a blowdryer with the best diffuser, as well as good airflow," advises Bumble and Bumble stylist Erickson. "This will create the best bouncy and healthy curls."
Unlike traditional hairdryer attachments (like the rectangular blowout nozzle, or comb piece for detangling), a diffuser allows you to gently cup your curls and distribute air evenly throughout your hair. Even if your strands aren't the type to take hours to air-dry, diffusers always come in handy to shrink that time you do have to wait. So, to save you a few extra minutes in the morning — and to save you from ruining a new T-shirt — we've rounded up some of the best diffuser attachments for curly hair, ahead.
