I've tried before, after, and both.
I seem to be settling in to a routine now where I do it after, since I'm again trying to squish all my product into very wet hair. I sometimes give a scrunch or two with my hands to get rid of some of the excess. I had worried that I was going to remove all the product with the towel by doing it after, but it doesn't seem to happen.
It's really a lot of trial & error, so don't let it frustrate you. A lot of us have to experiment for a long time until we are happy with it -- and then you get another product or another idea and you try it all sorts of ways all over again.
