I know that texture and porosity are frequently linked, but I wonder if texture matters more than porosity when it comes to plopping?

My hair doesn't plop well at all. The curl pattern gets squished flat on the top of my head, but that's because my hair is so fine that it gets easily mashed.

On the other hand, if I did a protein treatment and made my hair stronger, I wonder if it would be more resistant to the squish effect?

Hmmm....I see more experimentation is in order
