    5+ but my hair is in the middle of ii. I usually airdry overnight because hair down in the daytime is just a nuisance. Last time in moderately mild temperature it took just over 6hrs, although that was for a hairtyping pic so I could probably help it along if I fluffed it and helped the air circulate better. Still has always taken 5+hrs in the past though, even with helping it along.

    8+H if left to its own devices. I towel dry around 30 min., airdry for 2-4H, and then all that needs to happen is a "quick diffuse" (5 min. does it), and then my roots are dry and the rest "almost", as good as. I'm happy with that "system" year round. In summer time I might air dry a tad bit longer, it depends. If it's too hot, I wait until the evening to diffuse.

    Definitely less than 1 hour. If I'm outside, it takes minutes. This has happened since I've got natural hair, when my hair was dyed and damaged it took like 4 hours to dry D:

    I air dry overnight and it seems to take the entire night. I don't even have overly thick hair. Maybe hair porosity is also a factor, I think I've heard ot that.

    I've been clocking in at an hour: 30 minutes in a towel and then 30-45 minutes just hanging. It occurred to me that I have the ceiling fans on in my house this time of year, though, so I think I'm getting a little extra help.

    1-2 hours. By the end of hour 1, it looks dry, simply the underside is damp. During these hot California summers, I wish itd take longer!

    5 hours +. Just did a hairtyping picture and it's been a little over 5 hours and I wouldn't honestly call it completely dry,yet. That pesky spot in the back ...
    I'm right at the end of the ii range.

    Usually around 6 hours.. But in winter it's more like 8 or 9 hours, it's very humid where I live and I think that affects it

    mine takes at least 5-8 hours depending on the conditions. i've taken to wrapping it up in an old cotton t-shirt for the first 30-40 minutes or so to help soak up the water, which can reduce the total drying time by a bit.

    Hmm. About 36 hours. I guess that's not the norm :/
