Plopping Didn't Work for Me

You have probably seen my Spring Empties video by now (if you haven't then you better click here and catch up!). In this video my hair is still wet--you can see the product in it--and it is already beginning to frizz up. The hair in this video is what I get when I use a popular curly hair technique called plopping or plunking. I have done this technique in the past before with much the same result.

What I Did
  1. Washed and styled my hair as usual using Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner, olive oil, and Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker.
  2. Piled my hair onto a t-shirt upside down then secured it around my head
  3. Removed the shirt the next morning
What Happened
  • My hair was still wet--not damp, wet.
  • It was as if the styling product had been soaked up into the shirt. 
  • Frizz
  • My hair still had hang and a little definition
They say the 3rd time is a charm but I'm going to sit this one out. I think it's safe to say that this technique--at least the way I did it--is just not for me.

Have you or will you try plopping? Comment below!
