Thread: Plopping, easiest one ever. How do you plop?

  1. #1

    Default Plopping, easiest one ever. How do you plop?

    I used to grab a pillowcase, but it is slightly small, so I have like 1" worth of material to tie together.. and all that trouble to gather all the material..


    Whenever I put my hair in an oil treatment, I put this BIG hanky on there.. fold a tip part way back, use that now flat end for the front, flip the rest over my head and tie at the nape making sure the flipped over part is between my neck and the tie so it stays put.


    My hair is dripping from just having been washed after henna, I am going to leave orange spots all over, and it dawned on me.. what if I plop to get rid of the excess water with that hanky??

    So.. same procedure, just put the hanky on the table, fold over on the front, put my hair and head on it, flip the large part of the hanky over my head, hold with my right hand, then grab the left pointy end and bring it to the nape, hold the folded back tip there with that hand now, grab the right pointy end and tie the dealie, stand up, pull the folded back tip down a bit so it is tight against my head and done!

    Here I was making it SO hard on myself this is SO much easier!

    Glad you found a way that works. You could try a big towel or a big t-shirt (the sleeves roll up at the sides and give you something to tie the plop with).
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    I use a flour sack towel folded in half like a triangle. Lay the towel on the toilet seat, pointy end away, lower my head down, pull the flat part against my forehead and bring the ends around to the back, lift up pointy part to cover the back and tie around it. I don't tie too securely because I only plop for 10 minutes.

    I thought you were doing more or less the same thing. Are you actually using a big hankie, or is it some kind of towel?

    Agnes Hannah, plopping is a way of removing water from hair without wrecking the wave or curl pattern.

    It is an actual hanky Not one used for honking though, only for hair stuff

    Here is a picture of a lady sporting one on her head, you can see it is quite big

    Aha, I get it! Here I think you would call that a bandana. Much bigger than a regular hankie. I couldn't figure out how you could manage to fit your head in a regular-sized one. Pretty similar to a floursack towel, except maybe a little thinner in the fabric.

    Over here people actually use the thing as a hanky though, but mostly (if not only) men.

    But I love the big size of it, that is for sure!
