Default Sirenrising's plopping method???

Somebody had mentioned sirenrising's method for plopping in the shower, and after touring a couple dorm room restrooms at a college I'm considering, I've realized I really need to know that info!

I have searched for it in all kinds of ways, to no avail.

Anybody know?

TIA!

i don't know how to do it in the shower but this showers you how to do it after the shower. Jessicurl calls it plunking but it is the same as plopping. http://www.jessicurl.com/Demo/plunkingqt/index.html

Thanks but I know how to plop - I do it every shower.

But sirenrising had a way to plop in the shower, and I was wondering if anybody had something close to that, or any way to plop in the shower.

Hm. Now I'm curious. I've never heard of this before. (Sorry, wish I had the answer.) Will now go on patiently waiting with you to see if anyone can enlighten us . . .

I always plop in the shower. My old tiny bathroom made anything else to difficult, & no way am I getting out of the shower, freezing & BSL hair dripping down my back. So I figured out how to do this inside the shower. I squeeze out the water while bending forward, then I gather my hair & accordion it down on top of my head (still w/ my head upside down) holding it in place w/ one hand, & with the other I get my microfibre turban around the nape, then quickly twist it down on top, so my hair is in the plop position. Then I stand up. I also do this with a hair towel, but it's a lot easier with the turban style.

I don't know anything new CC got me to thinking though.
I bet I could just clip my microfiber at the back of my head while hanging upside down and then stand up and the flap of the rest of the towel would be on top. That's how I plop anyway but I usually set my hair on the towel before doign the same proceedure.
The real tight to the head plopping always pulls the top of my hair straight (I"m a freak I know)

I think I'll try this. It would sure save on my rug, it's always sopping wet and boy it's a pain to dry off with my head hanging upside down.

Hooray! Thanks, CC!!!

It makes sense and it sounds like I can do it - sweet. Now I am impatient to shower and try it out.

OK, report back. A freezing bathroom + long dripping hair = ingenuity.

Dang - I dunno if what I tried a couple nights ago counts as trying or if it just skips right to failing. I couldn't manage to get all my hair caught up and after so many attempts, I just gave up.

But today I got a haircut and it's now BSL in the length, with some layers in it. So I have a fighting chance to catch it all next time! I will update again!

I've plopped in the shower before, but only with a turban - not with a tee-shirt or towel. What I did was bend over so my hair hung upside down, then placed the turban below my ends and gently pulled it up to my head, allowing it to scrunch the curls up to my head. At the top, I just twisted and secured the turban like normal, except there was no hair in the twisty part because it was all plopped.

CC - I'm amazed you're able to plop standing right-side up! You must be much more coordinated than I am

Nope, probably just colder. And usually, I do it upside down too. My hair is so long though, that it works best if I use on hand to plop my hair in position first, then get the turban on one-handed.

Makes sense to me, too - before yesterday's cut, my hair was to my waist. Now, I'll see what works - I am determined to get this!
