Plopping almost dry hair

Does anybody else do this? Lately I've diffused almost dry, about 80% or so, then I plop again using the Live Curly Live Free method. Seems to give me extra root volume.


2b/c mix, fine strands, low porosity, medium density, and normal elasticity.

Love Curl Junkie! CJ Gentle Cleansing Shampoo, CJ Curl Queen gel, and CJ Curl Fix are HGs for me.

    Yeah, that thread gave me the idea to try it on slightly damp hair. Seemed like it was only about plopping with fully dry hair.

    I tend to do both wet and dry but never just damp so I might have to investigate that. :)

    Le me know what you think! The dry plopping worked really well for me getting 2nd day hair. I feel like I'm plopping all the time now though, lol, right out of the shower, almost dry, and at night. I feel like the almost dry plopping makes the most difference for me, volume-wise.

    I'm going to have to try this. Volume is what I lack the most. Unfortunately, when I get ready for work I don't have time to wait for my hair to be almost dry...I guess I could turban-up in the car!

    If my husband and I are in a long car ride to visit family, I'll plop and wear it until we almost get there! He hates it but it's really helpful.
