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?

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.
