Plopping my curls is a step of my routine that I wouldn't want to miss, as it really helps me to achieve nicely curled and frizz-free hair. Recently, I have discovered that plopping my curls with the right kind of towel leaves me with even better results than when I used my old t-shirt to plop.
Rather than wrapping the towel around your hair like a turban, I recommend plopping your curls instead. This will enhance your definition, as opposed to the turban-technique, which elongates your curls.
Remember: Absolutely keep your curls away from terry cloth towels!
Terry cloth leaves you with frizzy, undefined curls. You can either use a microfiber towel or a cotton one. My favorite towel right now is the cotton Frizz Eliminating Towel by Hair Remedie. Not only is it big enough to completely wrap around all of my curls, but it absorbs moisture quickly.
Basically, it can be used just like you would use any other towel to plop your curls. The tricky part is to make sure the towel stays in place during the whole time of plopping. I use a big hair tie to fix it in the back of my head.

I would love to hear from you! Do you have any questions on plopping curly hair? Have you figured out an easier way to get rid of excess moisture before drying your curls?
