Plopping No-Heat Curls

We’ve been asked a lot lately for a few new No-Heat Curl methods. This curl technique is certainly not new, but definitely one of the easiest ways to set curl to your hair without using any heat.

Today we are going to show you how to create Plopping Curls {or Plunking Curls}, obviously because the vital step is to plop your hair into a t-shirt, and then tie it up. Whenever I go for no-heat curls, I always add a curl-defining mousse our serum to help lock in the texture. Use what you are comfortable with, but it’s certainly not necessary.

I am sure pretty much everyone has a spare t-shirt lying around, and I am also certain that everyone showers and sleeps! Those really are the only ingredients necessary to get these beautiful loose curls!

  1. I love these curls! They are perfect for any occasion and easy to make. I love the fact that these curls are done better with no heat than with heat. Also you don’t do much at all!

  2. I’ve been doing this method for a long time, works great, but I have an easier way of tying the tshirt!
