Listen, I know it sounds kinda like it may be NSFW…but it’s perfectly acceptable to bring up plopping in polite company. As a matter of fact, I’d start telling every curly haired girl you know.
Because curly hair is hard, and we can use all the help we can get.
Curly hair, like many things in life, takes (a lot) of time to master. Lucky for us, we just discovered “plopping,” and are now obsessed with it. It’s so easy! And you know nothing gets into G&G’s beauty routine unless it’s easy.
Curly hair should not be washed very often, but it’s ok to condition those unruly locks in between shampoos. Which is good, because you need wet hair to plop!
-After washing/conditioning, comb through your hair with a wide toothed comb and apply any curl creme or whatever product you like to use.
-Lay out a t-shirt or towel, or if you’re cool like G&G, a cheetah print scarf, on your bed.
-Leaning over the towel, bend at the waist and “plop” wet hair onto the towel. (Making sure curls are positioned at the top of your head.)
-Pull the towel taut (hate that word) around your head, and begin to twist the ends as you stand.
-Keep twisting until the towel is tight, and tie/clip towel ends at the nape of your neck.
-You just plopped!
You can plop overnight, or just a bit in the morning as you go about the rest of your morning routine. Some folks like to just use plopping as a first step, and then finish drying with a diffuser after. Obviously G&G is too lazy to do that.
