Smile Plopping question

Hi hope someone can help me with this. After plopping and I take it off, my hair mainly at the right side and back of my head is not coming down - its like tangled in. I thought my hair had got thin or something the other day but then I realised this had happened. How do you get your hair down after plopping - should I be shaking my head? (it's weird how the rest comes down ok). Hope someone can suggest something - thanks in advance

Ok two things before putting your hair in a plop when its soaking wet use a wide tooth comb with your head flipped over, this should get all the knots out. Also to take your plop out flip your head over and remove then flip back and part.

Oh and it works best for me if i comb through with my head flipped over in the shower with water running through my hair, it makes it smoother.

Hi well followed your advice and it was much much better. It still stuck up a bit just at the nape of my neck area however I'm using one of those microfibre turbans for plopping so I think I'll go back to my t-shirt. I wonder if the tightness of the turban isn't helping. But the using the comb certainly did help and I also left my hair for a bit before defusing to give it time to drop down.

thanks again!

Thanks for bringing this issue up. I thought I was the only one this happened to and I actually thought it was normal. I gave up plopping with the tshirt thinking the microfiber would be so much better. I usually de-plopped with my head upside down/flipped over then flung my hair as I stood upright. The hair was often stuck at the top of my head and tangly. If I tried to put it back into shape gently with my fingers, my hair would get frizzy. I think this happens because the microfiber absorbs so much of the water and product very quickly there is no lubrication to allow my hair to slide back to normal. I think that if you plop with the microfiber towel you can't leave it on for a long time. You have to have some moisture and weight left in your hair to let it fall into place. Plus, the microfiber towel seemed to give me halo frizz which the tshirt never did. I will also switch back to plopping with the tshirt.
