The curly hair struggle is no joke. There are times where maintaining my curls takes way more effort than it's worth, which usually ends up with me leaving my house with the ultimate bedhead (or looking like I stuck my finger in an electrical socket).

There's simply no such thing as getting ready in five minutes in my vocabulary.

I've spent years trying to achieve the perfect balance between thick and wavy curls, and my routine is still lacking. Fortunately, a video helped me learn a new techniques.

How to Get Luscious Hair

When I first saw this video of YouTube user Donata White using a T-shirt as part of her routine for maintaining her wet hair, I was a little skeptical.

For this plopping or plunking technique, you start with wet hair right out of the shower. The first thing you do is put in your product.

In the video, White uses TRESemmé Platnum Strength all over. Then, she uses both the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Serum and Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine — a leave-in conditioning cream for frizzy, dry, and unmanageable hair — from about her ears down.

Then, once you have the product in your hair, brush your hair to make sure the product is evenly distributed and that there are no tangles.

Next, lay out a T-shirt on a flat surface, like your bed, facing you. Take your hair and flip it over in front of you. Your hair should be off your neck and starting to touch the shirt some you are hovering over.

Once all your hair is flipped over, lower your head slowly down onto the T-shirt. Let your curls naturally curl up without being frizzy or tangled.

Without moving your head, grab the bottom of the T-shirt and wrap it around towards the base of your neck. Hold the two ends at the base of your neck and grab the neckline of the shirt and fold it over, putting the neckline of the shirt on your neck.

Make sure the sleeves of the shirt are free on both sides of your head. Now, you can stand back up and hold the two sleeves in both of your hands. Tie the sleeves together in the front and tuck in any leftover fabric, which secures the shirt.

In the morning, unwrap the shirt and you will find nice and neat curls that are dry, bouncy, and frizz-free. After all, nothing is ever that easy, right?

Watching the end result of how amazing her hair looks just from wrapping something so simple as a T-shirt around it before bed blows my mind. I've never heard of the "hair plop" trick before but will definitely be trying it to eliminate the risk of frizzy, thin hair, and flat curls.
