Definitely plopping. It cuts way down on the drying time and helps my waves form.

Alternating low pooing, cowashing and water washing. I know I can't exclusively cowash because my hair gets greasy and limp.

Scrunching styling products gently into almost soaking wet hair. I used to aggressively scrunch but found my waves form better if I do it gently!

If you have a question, just ask! There are no dumb questions.
