Primping and preening in front of a mirror for hours before a big night is fun, but there is something to be said for extremely lazy (and effective!) beauty techniques. If we can sleep or nap while getting gorgeous, that strategy sky-rockets to the top of our routine. Now we've discovered the perfect strategy for waking up with fairy-tale-approved ringlets instead of a rat's nest — plunking.
Plopping or plunking is a way to air-dry curly hair overnight so it remains glossy and frizz-free. By scrunching your strands and carefully wrapping them close to the scalp in a soft t-shirt, you'll get tighter, more defined curls. Once you get the hang of folding your shirt like a turban, you'll wonder why you ever tried any other way!
