Default OVERNIGHT PLOPPING?!?!??!?!

Yes or no?

I'm using a t-shirt. If I plop overnight with products, how do you think that'll work?

Never worked well for me. What did work well was plopping overnight with just conditioner left in, then adding either Curl Soufflé or Spiral Curls Cream in the morning.

Doesn't work for me. My hair must need air to dry because no matter how long I leave it plopped it is still wet...a wet, smushed mess.

Ok, well I tried it, and it was a MIRACLE! For the first time in my life, my curls are dry AND unpoofy/frizzy at the same time!!!!!!

I used Garnier Fructis gel, and some of John Frieda's "Dream Curl." There isn't much clumping at all, and the curls are pretty undefined.

I have a hair dryer, but no diffuser. Can I just put the hair dryer on cold and use it upside down on my hair, or is that a no no?

If you like to diffuse, get a hot sock, they work pretty well I think and are cheap and portable. I bought an expensive one and it was awful for me, I returned it.
I am not great at diffusing though, I don't have the patience and it makes me pretty frizzy - the hot sock is less frizz for me than the kind with holes in them though.

I can't sleep with anything on my head. I rip it off (while asleep) and wake up to my hair a mess.
