Your hair came really great with the overnight plopping. Did you leave the clips in overnight or do them in the morning? I know my clips wouldn't stay put all night - I'm doing good if I get them in good enough for them to stay put in the morning!
Thanks msgiblet I left the clips in overnight as well. I use the small Deva clips. They stay put for the most part. There are a couple that like to move around a little bit, mostly the ones closer to the back of my head at the top. But, they stay well put enough to work.
The first time I did it, I put the clips in in the morning after I took the towel off. That didnt turn out too great. It turned out much better leaving the clips in overnight. You should try it. It's not as hard/ uncomfortable as it seems. It's so much of a time-saver for me in the mornings!

The last few weeks, I've been wrapping my hair in a mf turban after cowashing and conditioning for a few minutes, then putting my products in instead of in soaking wet hair. There are some products I still put into soaking wet hair because of their consistency. It's been working pretty well for the products I use that are aren't thick or mousses.
sessac81 - The mf turban I refer to above is like the Curlmart one only it's a Scunchi and I got it at Walmart. It has one button in back and I would think it would work well for overnight plopping.
