Default Skip curl?

What is it?
Is it for those with strong curl patterns or those with wimpier ones? (like moi?)

Thanks!

A "skip curl" is a manual way to encourage an individual (wet) curl to form into a ringlet. The end of the strand is held between the index finger and thumb and the hair is "skipped" imitating the movement of a skipping rope, then let go. I sometimes have to do that when some of my curls decide to go limp after I apply a styling product so I suppose it may work on "wimpier" curls as you say , however, I think it would be quite a bit of work to go through your whole head doing that... Have you tried "plopping" already to see if that works?

As in turning the rope? Hrmmmmm that doesn't sound as hard as I thought

A hairdresser did it to my hair once and I had nice defined and more uniform curls, but try as I might I could never replicate what he did.

I have a pretty wimpy curl pattern and anytime I twist or attempt the skip curl method, my hair ends up straight. It refuses to go into ringlets and prefers to look like rick-rack trim.

Yes, like the ones boxers or little girls jump/skip.
