Ploppin’ it real

Have you heard of plopping??  As I explore this new world of embracing the curl, I’m learning all about curly girl hair care.  The point of the plop is to dry your hair naturally but without letting your hair hang and the weight of the curls weigh the curls down.   As with many things in life, you have trial and error.  Here is a picture of the first time I ‘plopped’.

What I learned, when it says leave up for 10-20 minutes, its probably best not to leave your hair up overnight.  I got insane curls so I guess mission accomplished right?

The next time I ‘plopped’ I did it the correct way.  I feel the need to share with my fellow curly girls how to achieve those healthy, bouncy, curls.  First, wash your hair just like you normally would.  Below is a picture of my new love, Elastine ProPoliThera hair care.

After you have washed and conditioned your hair, apply your favorite product to keep away the frizz.  I threw out the gels and mouse and use Elastine PropoliThera hair serum. Apply the serum through out your hair-

Pick out a tshirt, lay it on a flat surface, collect all of your hair in the center.

Grab the top of the shirt and fold it to your neck.  Stand up, tie the sleeves together behind your neck, then take a picture to document how crazy you look.

Once your hair is up and out of your face, you can put your makeup on or get ready for bed.  Wait 10-20 minutes, let your hair down and you’re ready to go.
