As any woman with curly hair knows, the struggle is real.
However, an easy new styling method could spell the end of your hairdryer for good, and all you need is an old t-shirt and some leave-in conditioner!
After washing your hair, this simple hair hack known as ‘plopping’ involves wringing out any excess water before applying a little bit of leave-in conditioner. Then you tip your hair over and ‘plop’ it into a t-shirt that has been laid out.
Simply wrap your locks up in the shirt and wait about 30 minutes… take off the t-shirt and… voila! Bouncy, beautiful natural curls.
‘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,’ explains website Naturally Curly.
With more and more people showing off their ‘plopped’ ’dos on Instagram, it’s worth giving it a try.
As for those with straighter hair, there’s no need to feel left out, many claim plopping is an easy way to get beachy waves!
