Just put the towel on your shoulders under your hair then pull the sides up and use a hair tie to hold it together at the top.
If I plop my hair down but only pull the sides back and clip it and leave the top loose it doesn't compress the top but it's out of the way so I can get dressed.

I can't help y ou with too curly though sorry!
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
