I fell out with plopping for a long time, the keys for me has been
- rewetting the nape and in front of the ears
- not plopping too long
- flour sack towels.
I do still have a straighter underlayer at the back but TBH I think that's natural, I've never had that any different.
Do try gently scrunching out the water with a towel tho, then clipping the roots (can do this off your face), you might prefer the results.
