Lately my hair has been kind of limp and not curling well, and its just all of the sudden. So I have been getting very frustrated. I tried scrunching, twirling individual chunks of hair, changing products, and it was overconditioned, so I fixed that. But it still wasn't curling well, I read Leilani's post about plopping last night and realized the last time I unsuccessfully tried to plop my hair was much shorter. So I tried again this morning. I applied [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]re:coil[/buylink] to sopping wet hair and then plopped for 30 minutes, then I took it out and had great curled clumps, then I applied joiwhip and it looked great. :o I think it would have dried great like that, if I had left it alone, but I had to put on my scraf/headband b/c its part of my easter outfit, but it still looks good, just some of the clumps broke up! I am sooo happy I tried plopping again! YAY! :D

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    I could never plop until just in the last few days-hair is finally long enough-and so far, so good!
