    You can, and you'll just have to see how things turn out. Some people can plop overnight, and some can't. When I plop overnight, my hair just gets royally messed up and doesn't dry. I get no gel cast.

    I have low-porosity hair. I think maybe people who have hi-po hair might do better with overnight plopping.

    I have no luck with gel, but I often will put mousse in my hair and plop overnight. Its usually still a little damp in the morning but I let it finish air drying while I get ready for work.  Low maintenance styling!

    My whole wash routine is upside-down... detangling, rinsing, applying products, scrunching, diffusing... the bigger the waves, the better!
