Thanks Ab-star! I don't know if plopping even does me any good-right now it is a matter of convenience. I don't think it makes my hair any frizzier-it is still pretty wet after I take it down (I use a T-shirt). I think I will try to diffuse on cool here in a bit. It has been air drying for an hour now. This is supposed to be easy-but I am finding very complicated to do NOTHING to my hair!
