I will plop occasionally if I'm in a hurry and need my hair to air dry a little faster. But usually I leave the house a bit drippy.

Plopping is a hair drying technique that involves piling it atop your head and securing a towel or t-shirt around it. The basic idea is that it helps your hair dry, but also supports it so that it does not get stretched out and flat.

My hair hates plopping because the towel sucks all the product out of all my hair except right at the top of my head, resulting in frizzy hair everywhere with heavily concentrated flakes on my scalp. It is not flattering.

sulfate, silicone and protein free since 6/11
porosity - normal to low
elasticity - normal

love my curls
HGs:
FSG
Henna
My own butter mixture
My own version of Terressentials mud wash
When I plop I do not pile my hair up.. I just wrap/tie my silk scarf onto my hair with my hair laying flat. Once it's dry I fluff it up for volume.

I prefer not to plop. Stretches my curls out and leaves it somewhat frizzy. I towel blot it some, just so it doesn't drip water all over my back. Once it's damp I just leave it alone. I use Sheamoisture coconut smoothie & castor oil, comb thru with fingers and that's it. I prefer a style with more volume, so I separate the curls once they are dry.
Oh sorry, 3c... I just saw 3 in the title, wasn't really paying attention. I'm a 3b, if that matters.

BTW, m_cruz2007, I love your blog.

For those of you 3c's that DO plop, are you doing it for better curl formation/definition or using it more as a drying aid?
