plop a bob?

Is using the plopping technique on a bob cut worthwhile?

I have an angled bob, and it is about and inch past my chin in the front.

Is my hair long enough to plop?

    I tried plopping short hair, and it was a disaster! It was a disaster for longer hair too...my whurly hair hates plopping :/

    OK, I plopped my curly bob hair today. It worked well! The back had more curl than it usually does with just scrunching. I was surprised! I tried a new product combo too. The curl held well, but my hair looked wet? Not really greasy, just wet. Maybe it is b/c I am just not used to well hydrated hair....

    I will be plopping again!

    I'm glad it worked for you!!! :)
    I was probably doing it wrong...plopping has just never worked for me, though.

    If I had known about the plop thing when I had my bob I'm pretty sure it would have been easier...!

    I plop my angled bob. Its grown out some now, the longest pieces are slightly below shoulder length. But I plopped it when it was a couple inches shorter too!
