Lately I've been trying out new ways to maximise my curls, as I'm a curly girl at heart. I've learnt to embrace my curls after many years of straightening and damage and I now love having curly hair! It's just so easy styling and takes little effort to get it looking right. Although, not everyday is a good hair day.. as having curly hair can sometimes leave me just wanting to cut it all off and longing to have naturally straight hair.
Since having embraced my natural curls last year, this site (http://www.naturallycurly.com/) has become my new best friend! It has lots of little handy tips and tricks and hairstyles for curly hair and I LOVE IT! My hair type is somewhere between a 2c - 3a, which basically means I have quite thick hair that's a mixture of waves and curls.
I've recently been looking for a way to keep my curls overnight as they can sometimes become squashed and frizzy after I've slept on them. That's when I discovered a method called 'plopping (aka plunking)' I tried this method out yesterday when I washed my hair and its absolutely brilliant!!! My hair was SO curly when I took it out of the plop this morning and it took 2 minutes for me to style rather than the usual 15 (spent revitalising the curls and adding volume) I didn't need to do anything and my hair was ready to go, go, go! If you'd like to try plopping then you can find out how to do it here :)
