Hey Peachy. I have very fine curls that don't even do well with plopping- they lose their shape. I am also narcoleptic- so I cannot get up on time every day. the ONLY way I've figured out how to have my curls in the morning after showering at night is to pineapple.

I wash my hair and then let it air dry for about an hour. Then I loosely pineapple my hair. My ends are still very curly when I do this. In the morning, I let my hair down and if there is anything out of place in the morning, I wet my hands and finger curl it. I know- it is SO frustrating trying to find the right products and style to get curls in the morning.

Good luck.
