Life as a curly haired girl is interesting. My hair days are even more interesting.
Some days I wake up, and my hair is rocking, and the curls are perfect, and I am totally having a good hair day.
And then……. The next day, after I’ve slept on my hair, its chaotic, and one side is completely deflated, while the other side looks like I’ve run through a room full of static balloons.
But fear not.
I have found the answer.
Ladies, I Introduce to you:
Plopping, is the non-heat method of drying your hair, and setting your curls perfectly.
And here’s how you do it.
After your shower, apply some leave- in conditioner, mouse and whatever other products you need for your hair cocktail.
Next, grab your cotton tea shirt and lay it down on a flat surface, with the sleeves furthest from you.
Bending from your hips, slowly lower your head towards the centre of the t-shirt, and try and keep your hair from spreading out on the t-shirt, keep it all together in one unit.
Fold the bottom end corners of the t-shirt towards the nape of your neck, and tie them together, then bring the sleeves towards the nape of your neck.
Next, stand up straight and bring the sleeves towards your forehead and tie securely into a knot and tuck away any loose bits into the sides.
Once your hair is dry, undo the t-shirt and see your beautiful bouncy curls!
I should add, that it is up to you how long you want to leave the t-shirt on, you can wait an hour, or even sleep with it on over-night, the longer its on, the more your curls will hold with more bounce.
You can also use a microfibre material, Dilly’s Collections has a drying cap range too!
So there you have it…. Plopping. Who knew?

Winter has well and truly set in these past few weeks. There’s a chill in the air and the mornings are frosty. Winter is a great time to grow out your hair and get a colour change. But the cold weather can also cause hair damage and frizz. Not only does the cold dry out your skin, but it can also dry out your scalp and hair and moisture from the rain and fog can cause your hair to frizz and your styled locks to fall apart!
So here are a few easy tips to keep your hair healthy, and styled over winter.
