Welcome to the curly world, Nancy! I have very fine 3b curls and found that I cannot plop most times- it just smashes my curls. I shower at night since I have the WORST time getting up in the morning, and found that if I let my hair air dry for about an hour, then pineapple my hair, it looks much better in the morning.

How does your hair look when you air dry? If your technique isn't working for your hair when it dries on its own, no amount of plopping or pineappling at night will save it, unfortunately.
