Hey,
I love plopping but my problem is that my canopy is very flat while the rest is voluminous.
I always rinse my hair in the shower while I'm standing and my hair falls down my back...
Has anyone tried rinsing the hair upsidedown and then plop? Does tha help?

Thanks for reading
I rinse my hair upside down, then plop. This definitely helps give me volume on top

2b~~fine texture~~normal porosity (except for highlights, which are high)~~normal elasticity~~medium density


Shampoo: Still use sulfates, but only on roots
Rinse out: Deva One C, JC Too Shea, Original Sprouts Deep Conditioner
Curl Enhancers: KCCC; JC Rocking Ringlets, JC Spiralicious, & Confident Coils
Styler: BRHG (over any and all curl enhancers) - this is the one product that I never change - absolute HG!!


I




I rinse upside down, put products in upside down and plopping still gives me the flat top. It squishes my hair flat and my gel seems to try and cement it that way.
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
Have you tried using clips at your roots before you plop, or plopping kind of loosely? I haven't plopped in a while, but when I was that prevented my hair from getting plastered to my head.

Hey thanks for your replies so far.

Gemini: Do you mean lifting and clipping the roots before I put my head in a towel to plop?

I will try to plop loosely

I asked myself the same thing. I'll probably apply them right side up and continue with plopping upside down.

I tried to put in the clips and I failed.
I just rinsed my hair again upside down ,applied product and plopped loosely and took the tshirt off when my hair was almost dry. I do have a lot of volume at the top now. I am pretty satisfied.
