clipping and diffusing

What order should I be styling in? I wash, put products on, plop, wait 30ish min., clip, the diffuse with the clips in. Is this right?

sgs, there's no real "right" way. You really do have to experiment. Some of us clip after diffusing (I do that), others diffuse with clips in. You might want to try it a few different ways to see what works best for you.

It certainly sounds like your routine is perfectly reasonable. Are you not liking the results?

I rinse, condition, shake and scrunch. I then spray a tiny bit of Devacurl Set It Free, towel scrunch and plop while I do my makeup, eat breakfast, etc.
I actually put gel on after I plop; if I do it before, I have no hold. Then I diffuse. I also clip after diffusing since I like to diffuse upside down.
Have several allergies and sensitivities.

2b-c, need lots of moisture, likes protein in moderation.
I usually plop then diffuse a bit, then clip and air dry for awhile, then pull the clips out, scrunch out crunch, diffuse on low setting again if needed. Sometimes if I am driving somewhere or going to be out of the public eye for awhile, I will clip my roots again until my hair is totally dry.

But since that usually takes a couple hours, I don't normally do that!
