I have a hard time tying the t shirt for plopping. Is there a more convenient alternative?
Absolutely! Plopping can be really inconvenient and annoying and sometimes it can be hard to get the tshirt wrapped around your head like everybody else... Instead you could use a microfiber towel!
An alternative I find to work well is the microfiber Twisty Turbie for @ $5 at CVS. Accomplishes the same thing if you accordian your hair down into it, and then twist the v part with no hair in it and tuck.
