Hair plopping is a heat-free hair drying technique for curly-haired people. It is a technique that you can use after you've applied your stylers and before you start to dry your hair. It will accordion your curls, helping them keep their defined, spiral shape, even after they dry.
The Plop will soak up moisture without creating frizz while your hair dries, significantly cutting down your drying time.
The best thing about hair plopping is that it enhances the curl definition and produces bouncy curls. Since your hair is tightly wrapped into a cloth, it prevents static that makes your hair frizzy. It helps to dry your curls quicker than ever, significantly cutting down your drying time while providing lift at the root!
Can I plop overnight?
You can plop wet hair overnight, though this is not suitable for everyone. Everyones hair is different and requires different techniques and love. You may want to plop overnight, but your hair only likes to be plopped for 10 minutes. If you AND your hair enjoy sleeping plopped, we highly encourage extra good scalp care as well.
How long should I plop?
Many plop for 5 minutes before they diffuse or air-dry their hair, and some keep their hair like this overnight.
Does plopping work on short hair?
On shorter hair, shoulder length or shorter, it's best to leave to dry naturally as the plop can squash the curls out of shape. Although we do have customers with short hair that swear by the plop!

It is optional, but products like curl defining cream, leave-in conditioner, and smoothing serum help soften your curls and control frizz.
Does hair plopping work on straight hair?
No, this method is ideal for curly hair.
Does plopping make your hair curlier?
If you have fine hair or looser waves, plopping can create lift at the roots, since your hair is drying on top of your head rather than being weighed down.
How do I know if it will fit?
This is an extremely stretchy fabric and we tried our best to make this a one size fits most, with two snaps for closure for different head sizes. If the snaps are still too far apart for smaller heads, it may be used without them, as well.
Can I wear the plop to bed, with dry curls, to protect them at night?
Because the material is designed to absorb moisture, it is not recommended to use on your already dried and styled hair, as it will continue to pull out moisture.
