Oh! Just saw your new post!
If you want a straight-ish crown, just loose the duckbills! You can still plop while getting dressed - I do the same thing. But dot flip your head upside down while styling. I tip mine forward and style/scrunch, and don't tip it over until I plop. If I want root curl I have to use duck bills. If I don't use them I won't get it. (I alternate between the two depending on what I'm going for that day. I also sometimes flip my head over when styling for a change - but not that often.)
