dana, I have the same problem you have! I like to plop because it helps my hair dry quicker but it makes my roots way too curly! I hate my hair that curly! Your have great hair btw! I love how smooth the top of your hair is. Can I ask what products you use? I'm evidently using the wrong ones because I don't want to enhance my curls even more. I have enough already!!
I'm going to try what medusahair recommended with the towel
