Day 10, much better :)

So this morning I figured out my hair does not like being upside down. After wetting and adding conditioner, I didn't plop, I just scrunched the water out with a t-shirt. Then I added some melting gel and started to diffuse upside down, which was when I realized the weird bumps at the roots started to appear. So I quickly turned my head upright, and diffused right side up. I got some nice waves in the front, which I have NEVER had! I realized that most people are diffusing upside down for volume, but I really don't need any...my hair is super thick.

I still have some frizz, but nothing tragic

So I'm guessing my routine is this:

Low-poo and conditioner on the ends
Rinse
Condition whole head
scrunch upside down in the shower
Cold water rinse upside down
Part while soaking wet
scrunch dry with a t-shirt
scrunch in gel
clip while putting on makeup
pixiecurl diffuse, but NOT upside down!
SOTC

I am also trying to devise a right side up plop...this way my hair is out of my face while I get dressed and stuff...THAT should be interesting! I'm thinking I can put the towel over my shoulders, then wrap it against my head. We'll see!

Warning: I am horrible at explaining things and I have never tried this myself

A potential way to do the right side up plop would be to use a t-shirt or long sleeve shirt. The way I think this might work is if you put the shirt around your neck like you are going to put it on (but without putting you arms in the sleeves) then pull the neckline of the shirt back over your face so the neck of the shirt is lined up with your hairline and the body of the shirt is around your hair. At this point you could put your head upside down so the hair bunches up around your head, tie a knot (or put an elastic, tie, etc) at the point in the shirt where you want your hair to sit, then put your head upright again.

My line of thinking is that this way the shirt still helps to dry your hair and keeps your hair out of the way as you get ready while still holding your hair up in a way that can encourage curls like the plop does.

Everyone else may think this is a horrible idea but its the first thing I thought of when I read you wanted an right side up plop. :P I hope this helps you out.

Alyssa-That's an even better idea! I actually found something cool the other day...

I thought it might work for my reverse plop, kind of like the T shirt idea you had. It's terry on the outside, but the inside is not. I'll post about it after I try it!
