Yes, I do!
I do LI, seal, then some gel on very wet hair. Then scrunch it with a MF towel. Then I reapply some gel focussing mainly on the ends.
After plopping, I sometimes will use a spray gel and gently scrunch with the towel a couple times.
I have to start with very wet hair to establish some clumping and keep frizz and springiness at bay. But I have to then scrunch water and weight out of those clumps to keep the curls from stretching. (And have to add a little gel back in to my then damp hair before plopping.)
So I guess I sort of do BOTH things.
