Just play around and see what works for you. I like to put my leave-in conditioner into wet hair, but then I'll wait a bit and/or scrunch with paper towels before putting in my mousse/gel/cream/whatever. Makes it dry a bit faster and I still get great frizz control.

Also, I still use a regular towel. I even wrap my hair up turby-style after a shower, but only for about 3-5 minutes. I certainly don't rub my hair with it, though. I just squeeze out the water, wrap the towel around, then carefully unwrap to start applying products. My hair just looks too flat if I put everything into soaking wet hair.
I'm a 3b, with 3c underneath.

Used to be CG, now I'm not. Using Suave Aloe & Waterlily shampoo & condish, JoiWhip, BRHG, Suave Aloe gel, Aussie Tizz No Frizz, and anything else that looks good!
