Default Plopping: I'm doin' it wrong?

Hi everyone,

I tried plopping for the first time last night, hoping to wake up to a head full of nice curls. I don't have a microfiber cloth or a T-shirt big enough, so I used a cotton pillowcase.

I tied the pillowcase around my head using exactly the same method described in the Jessicurl how-to video ( - perhaps a tad looser, since the pillowcase was not easy to handle.

That was at midnight last night. This morning at 7am I woke up to soggy, deformed curls. My hopes for 3rd-day curls were shattered - I had to re-style.

Any idea what I may have done wrong? I understood plopping was suitable for overnight drying?

Thanks in advance for any advice!
