good hair days

DarbyDarby Posts: 1,025Registered Users
I'm having some good hair days and I changed one thing... I'm plopping again. I stopped over the summer because I was getting a flat top. But now, I'm getting volume and it's lasting all day.

    I'm a big fan of plopping, too. I never travel without something to plop in..

    I had stopped plopping for awhile because it was making my curls wonky. Now, I only do it for about 5-10 minutes and it works great; any longer and my hair just doesn't do as well.
    My MF towels travel with me wherever I go. :love5:

    Yaaaa for plopping! Though I sometimes have trouble trying to get the towel to stay around the front or back of my head. Any suggestions? Am I doing it wrong?

    CurlyinColorado forgive me for this but you just struck me funny this morning so I'm going to quote you here:

    How do you secure the towel? Do you just tuck it in? Or do you tie the ends in a knot, or use a hair elastic to hold it in place?

    I pull the ends back and use an elastic to hold it - just like a ponytail.

    I flip my head over, twist the (cloth diaper) ends tightly and use a claw clip to keep the ends together in the back. It took some practice.
