The How To Be Sound podcast.

With host Rosemary McCabe, who writes:

What’s it like growing up with curly hair, in a sea of ghds? In the latest episode of How to be Sound, I chat to ‘Curly Cailin’ Gabriella Strano (top) about her curly journey, the ‘Curly Girl’ method, puff cuffs, buffs, pineapples and wet plopping.

Alternatively a steam iron at high heat.

      Well I listened to a podcast about Trevor Sorbie at the weekend. Very interesting. Hair is important to people.

      Hey! I didn’t have to go to Google to check what you meant. I’m so soccer.

    What in God’s name is this about? I barely understood the text under the image. A woman talks about her curly hair? Wet plopping? Ugh

      Plopping is drying one’s hair with a t-shirt instead of a towel, carefully lowering it down and wrapping it gently. It prevents curly hair drying out too soon.

        Is that what it’s called? I have done that. Makes a LOVELY curl, I must say. They should come up with a nicer description for it.

          I think it comes from the US, where they may not have such filthy dirty minds as us. (Plonking is slightly better methinks.) I don’t own any big t-shirts so I put mine in a normal towel for five minutes then check there is no drips and leave it to dry. Takes a long time but fully worth it.

            Bertie, I sorely wish I did. Though if I were a ginger, I probably wouldn’t have the grá for a hot redhead fella of an evening

            I even went to a special curly hair hairdressers in NYC once. Jaykers. I was like yer wan in the photo up top. Amazing.

          1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

            I had forgotten where I went in NY. It’s called Devachan. They developed a special shampoo called, wait for it, no-poo. They dried my hair with special towels that were like t-shirts.
            I bought the shampoo. It was tremendous. Then totally forgot about it til now! It’s not cheap but might be worth a go. Not sure if they ship, though, as I brought it home with me.
