Flat and crunchy

Hi again!
I am sticking to this CG method and trying to figure out a routine that works for me. I am having a love hate relationship with plopping. When I do it, my waves are happy but the top of my head is flat. I have tried changing the way I wrap it and how tight I tie the shirt but it always ends up the same. I have also looked into Clipping but I cant figure out exactly how and where to place the clips.
I am also wondering about product. I feel like my hair is super crunchy the first day, even if I try to SOTC. How do I know if I am using too much product? I definitely like my hair better the second day which is new to me.
Last question is about itchy scalp. I Have often had an itchy scalp that felt like it was coated in buildup but it seems to be worse lately. I feel like when I scratch my scalp there is a white buildup or coating.
Thank you in advance for all of your wonderful advice!

For the itchiness, do a brown sugar scrub. Mix together about a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon of brown sugar. I also like to add about 5-8 drops of rosemary oil.

Massage in the mixture (I do it over the tub) into your scalp and let it sit for about 10 mins. I just shake my head over the tub and then bun it. Then, I low poo/shampoo (could cowash as well) it out in the shower and condition like normal.

The top of my head can get flat after plopping but I just sort of gently shake it out with my fingers.

Thank you! I will try the brown sugar scrub.
I have tried using my fingers to "unflatten" the top of my hair but I think the weight from the length makes it impossible. Today I left some hidden clips in and it really helped the top stay up.
I appreciate the advice!
