I actually find it really easy to follow! What problems are you coming across? Is it the method itself or that you are tempted to straighten your hair again?

I really don't straighten my hair coz it takes forever! The problem I'm having is mostly the products an the plopping. I don't like to plop

Plopping isn't mandatory. If it's not working for your hair, then maybe just scrunching would work better. Plopping works for some, but for others it creates strange waves/curls and frizz.
What kind of product issues are you having?

Second what Wavy7s said - plopping definitely isn't mandatory. I don't do it either, because I find it gives me frizz!

What products are you using? If you're having issues you're probably not using the best ones for your hair type. Try looking at the signatures of people with similar hair to yours, so you can get some good recommendations

It would be easier to follow with the book, Curly Girl: The Handbook (also available here). It even comes with a DVD full of videos showing how to do it.
