I gently scrunch in my curl enhancer while upside down to soaking wet hair and then plop into a long sleeve shirt. After 20 mins I take it down, scrunch in my gel and plop into a flour sack towel. I like to separate the two and double plop because my hair is very thick and seems to do better but it's all personal preference.

Most people will apply their styling products before plopping. My hair can look a little wonky after the first plop so I gently arrange the hair that's going crazy and set my "part" right before I scrunch in my gel.
