I plop directly out of the shower and then get dressed. I leave the plop on, with a towel over it (for heat, it seems to help) while I get my makeup on and by then it's seven or ten minutes and I squish the towel a little to absorb some more water and then take it off. It's dry enough after that to wear on my clothes without them getting wet. I style, then go wake my kids and it's air drying while i'm getting them ready and fixing breakfast.
