The Plump Method for Curls

What is the plump method?

the Plump Method

It is a method for people with natural curls to create big, bouncy, fluffy waves/curls! The following steps make the plump method:

  • 1. Combing conditioner through hair in the shower and not combing again.
  • 2. Allowing water to help big curl clumps form. *5-6 curl clumps are optimal.
  • 3. Applying curl enhancing product to soaking wet clumps with a praying hands method.
  • 4. Lightly pressing excess water out with a t-shirt or other cloth that will not cause frizz.
  • 5. Plopping those curls for at least 10 minutes, preferably 20-30 min.
  • 6. Diffusing is optional, but my preferred method of drying for best results.

The Plump Method Results

as part of my curl journey: low heat, protecting curls at night, limited heat styling (no curling/flat irons).

How did you come up with it?

I started my curl journey in January of 2019. I am not strictly following the Curly Girl Method (which provides amazing results for many curlies), instead I started with the goal of healthier curls. I do use some heat while diffusing, but I stopped straightening my hair (no more flat irons) and I also stopped using curling irons for touch-ups. The Plump Method is the combination of steps that I found give me the best results after a LOT of trial and error.
