What is plopping?

I've searched the forums but not managed to find the answer I'm looking for.

What exactly is plopping? Will it help my hair to be more curly?

Thanks!

    My hair loves plopping!!!

    Plopping (or plunking) is a technique used to help enhance your curls and helps your hair dry faster. You would do it after applying your leave-in and styling products. Some people do it with a special microfiber towel, t-shirt or flour sack towel. I used to use a t-shirt, then I found out about flour sack towels. Here's a video from youtube by Jessicurl showing how to do it.

    There's also a thread on here about how to do it with a flour sack towel....gotta find it though.

    Hope that helps!
