Plopping is intended to increase curl, especially at the root, and for me, that would mean mega-shrinkage. I'm not really concerned with trying to get more curl, plus I don't like to manipulate my hair or do things to tangle it more than I have to when going for a natural look.
Some people plop to help their hair dry, but I just squeeze the water out of my hair with a microfibre towel when I get out of the shower.
Get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me. -Muhammad Ali
