Yea it definitely does. I think I need to skip plopping with this technique. My part area definitely looks a little funky but WHOA have I got root curl! I can't wait for it to dry so I can take some pictures and blog about this. I think if I skip the plop and put my part the way I like it before it gets to drying, this could be a big winner with me. More experimenting needed like always. But I'm loving this volume at my roots!! Oh btw, I used Suave, Giovanni 50:50, Boots, and KCCC.
