I think I understand how to plop but need some help on when.

I usually get out of the shower, wrap my hair in a towel (I need to get a microfiber towel or large enough tee), comb it, then put my leave-in & styler in. Would I plop after all that? Or would I skip wrapping in a towel after showering? Thanks!
