i'm so confused, ladies!!!

i've been wearing weaves for about a year and have been religiously drying my braids to prevent mould/funkiness

but i've been reading recently about ladies on bhm letting them air dry

i don't understand how that would even work..won't that take forever? won't the hair get smelly?

i've got some kinky curly hair coming so i'd like to know how to best dry my hair underneath, without having a giant afro

Usually I let me weave air dry, but then I get under the dryer and make sure my braids are dry. Only because I have psoriasis throughout my scalp and it itches very badly when my hair is not thoroughly dried.

After I wash and DC my hair, I dry my braids with my handheld blow dryer on medium but I air dry my weave. I wash and dc my own hair every two weeks, but wash my weave 1x a week and co-wash 2x a week.  I hope that makes since.
