I always apply my products to soaking wet hair to get good distribution and a gel cast...I don't think it would work when most of the moisture has already been taken out by plopping. BUT, since I am a wavy and not curly, I will sometimes apply mousses after I plop for a more natural look. Mousses don't work as well in soaking hair IMO.
