Here's How To Plop Your Hair For The Best Curls Of Your Life

Plop down over here while we explain this magic.

Natural curls are downright ~majestic~.

But living with curly hair means living in a constant state of chaos.

You can have the best hair day of your life on a Monday and then, BAM:. Sleep on your hair and Tuesday is a bust.

Curly-haired people of the world, there is hope. And this hope is called "plopping."

What is plopping, you ask? It's a no-heat method of drying your curls to perfection.

Some people plop in pairs.

And it's not just women.

No matter how they plop, it WORKS.

So, how exactly do you plop? First, grab your favorite hair products.

Then grab a cotton T-shirt.

Then follow these eight steps — from this great Curly Hair Routine video by Donata White.

Step 1: After shampooing, apply your products to damp — not wet — hair.

Step 2: Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair.

Step 3: Lay out the cotton shirt on a large, flat surface.

Step 4: Flip your head upside down, then gently begin to lower your curls onto the T-shirt.

Step 5: Begin rolling the bottom of the T-shirt up toward your forehead, then wrap it around the nape of your neck.

Step 6: Bring the top of the T-shirt up toward your head, wrapping around the rest of your hair and bringing the arms down and around the nape of your neck.

Step 7: Stand upright and bring the arms of the shirt up towards your forehead. Tie them together in a knot, then tuck any loose corners into the knot.

Step 8: Once your hair is dry, unwrap your T-shirt and SEE YOUR BEAUTIFUL CURLS.
