I think every head is different. I've changed my technique over the past several months, but this what I'm doing now and having the most consistent hair days to date.

I rake in my leave in while still in the shower
Then I take my Aquis towel and drape it over my head and gently press down all over which absorbs any excess water
Then I dry my body
Then I rake in my products upside down and go immediately into a plop with a micro turban
After 10-15 mins, diffuse til dry
