Wondering how to plop curly/wavy hair? Check out this easy DIY.
Plopping is a technique for naturally wavy and curly headed people to enhance curls and to get the hair out of your way after you get out of the shower. I think it is a necessary step if your hair is longer than your shoulders and especially needed if you have looser curls or waves.
Check out the image below for step by step instructions on how to make a head wrap to plop curly/wavy hair.
Tip One: I’ve found L\XL Men’s T-shirts to work the best for my big head.If you have a smaller head a smaller shirt will work.
Second tip is how your hair should look when you have put your hair slinky style into the head wrap and secured it to you head.Now you are plopping!
You will have a hair horn or bump right above your forehead.
Now get pretty for your day! I like to plop my wavy hair for at least 30 minutes.
Then I take it down gently and my curls are partially dry.
I then clip my roots for volume and choose to air dry or diffuse dry completely before scrunching out the crunch and revealing beautiful waves.
