Default 1st successful plopping!!!

Lately my hair has been kind of limp and not curling well, and its just all of the sudden. So I have been getting very frustrated. I tried scrunching, twirling individual chunks of hair, changing products, and it was overconditioned, so I fixed that. But it still wasn't curling well, I read Leilani's post about plopping last night and realized the last time I unsuccessfully tried to plop my hair was much shorter. So I tried again this morning. I applied re:coil to sopping wet hair and then plopped for 30 minutes, then I took it out and had great curled clumps, then I applied joiwhip and it looked great. I think it would have dried great like that, if I had left it alone, but I had to put on my scraf/headband b/c its part of my easter outfit, but it still looks good, just some of the clumps broke up! I am sooo happy I tried plopping again! YAY!
2c or 3a Cut most of my hair off in July '12 and am working on regrowing it.

Congratulations! I was just thinking I should retry plopping now that my hair is longer. It gives me hope!
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

I could never plop until just in the last few days-hair is finally long enough-and so far, so good!
