Drying times

Does hair dry faster in a plop, or out of it (air-drying)? For example, if I leave my hair in a plop for an hour and then air dry, will it take longer or shorter time to dry as opposed to leaving it in for 30 minutes? Does this make sense?

I've been experimenting with this as well.. It's confusing to no end for me. Lol
Sometimes, I feel like the longer I plop the better, but other times I feel like that just lets my hair sit in a wet t shirt/towel... I need my hair to dry quick! lol

I'll let you know if I end up figuring something out.

Mine dries faster with little to no plopping - if I plop, it's only for about 15 minutes at most. Any longer just impedes drying for me.

I generally do better just to blot out excess wetness (after Super Soaking), partially diffusing, clipping the top, then air drying - clipping lifts it up and helps it dry faster, too.

Air dry is much faster. Also it dries more slowly if i have buildup too...

For me, drying time depends a lot on products and dewpoints also. I use plopping more as a way to get the bulk of the wetness out and set my curls. If I plop overnight my hair is still pretty wet in the morning. I know some people have had good results re-plopping with a dry towel once the first is saturated with water.

ive been plopping for a few weeks but i am starting to realize it is actually quicker just airdrying.. so i plop while i get dressed etc so my wet hair is out of the way, i change flour sacks 2 maybe 3 times.. after that i just let it air dry, but it takes sooooooooo long!

Thanks for all your input guys! I think I'll start reducing my plopping time and see if I can get my drying times down a bit.
