Wookiemouse, are you saying that after you use the curlease towel and then scrunch in gel, you don't use the towel anymore and just let it dry?

I have the same problem as the op because my hair is too short to plop. So basically I am asking, when do you use a towel (after curl creme and before gel?) and how wet do you leave your hair after that?

TIA!
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
