How do I plop my hair?

I am so confused about how to plop my hair. I think my hair is 2a but when I diffuse it with mousse it's more 3a. I wanted to try the Curl Girl Method to make my hair more healthy and embrace my curls. I am finding it particualy hard to plop my hair. I don't understand how to do it. Help please?? Thanks X
Go to www.jessicurl.com and go to her "Plunking" video and watch it. She makes it easy to understand! Good luck

Thanks JLow that video really helped. Although, I'm not sure if this will work for my hair because it's only 2c/2b.

You'll probably still have to clip the crown if you're air drying after the plop. If you frizz after the plop your current product might not be plop compatible.

Plopping can give your a curl pattern a bit of strangeness but clipping as del2c says can help with that as can a few seconds of light scrunching after the plop with some gel (or whatever product you use).

Seek not to change the world. Rather seek to change your mind about the world.
FYI I can only flop for 5 minutes. Everyone is different so experiment to find a time that works for you.

"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
