If you are the owner of beautiful curly hair, you also know that there is a lot to do with it. If you want to have amazing curls every day, there is much more to do than just wash them and dry. However, if you don’t know what to do exactly or what best to give your hair – read the article and find out what the plopping is. We will discuss it in details and this activity won’t have any more secrets.
Plopping – what is it?
Plopping is a safe method, thanks to which your curly hair will get a beautiful twist and will not puff. Plopping is applied before leaving the hair to dry naturally or before using a blow dryer with a diffuser. It is connected with applying a cotton t-shirt or towel over your hair. A T-shirt allows you to easily get the perfect twist curls, and also prevents them from swelling. Plopping makes the moisture absorbed by the material, so the hair also dries faster. The method is mainly used by women who have curly hair, but plopping will also work well on wavy and curly hair.
How to plop your hair correctly – 4 simple steps
Now, when you know what plopping is, it’s time to get down to work. There are four steps that you should follow to get the best possible effect.
- After washing your hair, gently drain them from excess water, and then thoroughly dissolve.
- Apply conditioner and hair styling products. We recommend this order: first conditioner without rinsing, then hair oil, and at the very end the cream defining curls.
- Lay the T-shirt on a flat surface, such as a chair or couch, so that its sleeves are close to your head, and then lay it so that the top touches the neck, and all the hair is in the middle of the T-shirt.
- And finally grab the sleeves of the T-shirt, roll them into rolls and tie them to the knot at the neck, wrap the rest of the fabric under the bottom, so that the turban holds well.
Your turban is ready to help your hair curl. Leave it on your head for at least 30 minute to 2 hours. However you can also let your hair dry in this T-shirt for the whole night. After removing the T-shirt, you can leave your hair to dry or dry it with a blow dryer.
The effects of plopping
Thanks to the plopping you can get a lot of benefits and spectacular effects. First of all your hair will not fluff, and the curls will get a beautiful twist. In addition, you can significantly reduce the time of drying hair, as well as easily take care of their condition. Because the material absorbs not only excess moisture, but also too much styling products, which often burden the strands.
If your hair is delicate, plopping will make it raised at the base, and the twist emphasized from the very tip of the head. This way you will not be forced to visit a hairdresser so often and you’ll be always satisfied with your hair. Plopping means no more frustration over your curly hair.
