This is a lifesaver.
You're welcome! The visual really helped me a lot, too. I haven't plopped in about 9 months - my hair on top was too short - but it's been growing out and I decided to try plopping again today. My hair turned out great, very curly and not as much frizz as I normally get. Yay for plopping!

My next experiment is going to try dry plopping in a silk scarf overnight. I can't seem to get second day hair with a regular sleep cap, and my hair is still too short to pineapple, so I'm going to give it a shot. Plopping, if your hair likes it, really is a great technique.
