Curling your hair can be a real nightmare to deal with, but in the end, it’s worth it for those luscious locks. At the same time, life would be a whole lot easier if there was a way to get the job done without putting all those little curlers or a red-hot iron in your hair.

But perhaps there is a better way. With the help of this simple “plop” technique, you can get a full head of curls with no effort at all.

All you need to do is simply fall asleep. Don’t believe it? Just check it out below!

Not everyone with long hair is lucky enough to have gorgeous natural curls. In fact, it can be a real hassle to spend the time using a hot iron to achieve a coiled look, and not everyone can afford to spend hours tending to their locks each morning.

But one woman named Donata White is hoping to change that. Donata uploaded a video on YouTube in which she hopes to show people a quick and efficient way to get great-looking curls, and the only thing you’d need to do is fall asleep. It couldn’t be any easier!


After stepping out of the shower, while your hair is still slightly wet, spray your head with a heat protectant product. Even though you won’t be using any heat, the spray will make your hair slick, which eventually helps the curls form.

After the heat spray, mix a quarter-size amount of keratin serum and leave-in conditioning cream together. Using a brush, work in the mixture so it spreads evenly throughout your hair. Depending on the length, you may want to adjust the amount so you don’t end up with too much product on your head.


After the mixture is thoroughly blended into your hair, find a large cotton T-shirt and lay it out on a flat surface in front of you; your bed will work perfectly. Make sure you place a towel down underneath the shirt to absorb any water that might leak through.

Next, bend slightly at the waist and flip your hair out in front of you over the shirt. Lower your head down very slowly so that your hair coils up without getting frizzy or tangled. Don’t worry if it takes a couple of tries to get it to fall in the exact position you need it to!

After your hair is gently placed in the middle of the T-shirt, grab the bottom corners of the shirt and wrap it around the base of your neck. Make sure to keep your head as still as you can during this step.


Now, grab the top of the T-shirt and pull the collar down toward the base of your neck where the bottom corners of the shirt just met. Take the loose sleeves and carefully pull them around both sides of your head.

Next, you’ll want to tie the sleeves together in the front of your head creating a cotton turban. Don’t stress if it takes a little while to get the hang of it; it can be confusing at first! Tuck in all the loose pieces of fabric so the turban sits as tightly on your head as possible.


Now, all you have to do is go to sleep! The following morning, you’ll have beautiful curls that are sure to impress anyone. Watch the video below to see Donata unveil her hair after a night’s sleep, and then try to “plop” your hair at home!

Is this woman a genius or what? You’ll never need to worry about using hot curling irons ever again!
