Default Blow drying hair while plopping

Has anyone tried blow drying their hair while all of the hair is up in a towel or T-shirt? As of late, I have been plopping for about 20 minutes and then I diffuse but I've often wondered how a person's hair would turn out if one blow dried it while it's up in the shirt.

If anyone has tried this before please share your experiences with it. If it's actually worked well for some people then I might have to give it a try myself.

I have wondered this same thing and have thought about trying it.

I've wondered about this too, but never tried it. Who's brave enough to try?

Ha, ha. I'll do it! I'm washing in the morning provided I feel well enough, have had a rough night with my Crohn's so far, but if not the morning, afternoon for sure once all my meds kick in! I'll let you all know!

I've tried this and it did speed the process of plopping you just need to be careful not to dry your hair too much and still use a low heat setting idk if it will work for everyone I only do it if I'm running late and don't have 20mins extra to plop. I'd say you will probably just need to try it to see what works for your hair

It worked okay for ProdigalCurly. How did it turn out for you, swtndspcy?

I'll be washing my hair tomorrow but I'm going to begin trying the CG method and just use conditioner instead of using a shampoo. I'll give the plopping/blow drying a try then. It my hair turns into a rat's nest from it then I'll just re-wash! LOL

I'll let everyone know how it turns out.

I tried it this morning and I can't say it made much of a difference. I may have not given it a full go at it because I was a little impatient. I may try again tomorrow and see how it goes.

Well, this will probably work better with thinner towels/ shirts. I blow dried for 20 minutes and got bored! It was a little drier than just leaving it up in the plop, but no major difference. I still had to diffuse. Might work better with hard hat drier... Otherwise your arms will fall of before your hair is dry!

I've never tried this. But I know if I leave my hair in the t-shirt it drys to the shape it was under the shirt lol. So I have to co-wash or rinse it again.

There was a thread about this a long time ago. Over a year probably. I would sometimes plop with a lacy hairnet and then diffuse. It would keep my hair from blowing around but sometimes my curls would be wonky so I stopped doing that. My hair does not plop well generally because I have a weak curl pattern and plopping seems to make it worse.

Well I tried it and needless to say I'll just stick with what I was doing before. It was still rather wet and it seems like the hair dryer dried the shirt rather then the hair underneath it.
