There are two types of baggying:
- A full-head baggy for the "greenhouse effect" and
- An ends-only baggy.
What's the point of baggying?
Moisture leading to:
- Easier styling and
- Better length retention
Moist and hydrated hair is less prone to breaking; that's how it allows you to retain more length.
Personally I do a full head baggy most mornings for 30 minutes or so. I've never done a ponytail baggy but I plan on trying it.
What to do if you can't tie your hair in a ponytail:
If your hair doesn't like being bunched up in one place either because it's too short or too thick, like mine, you can part it in four and baggy each plait or twist separately.
Too much moisture can actually cause breakage so don't over do it! Do you baggy? What results (good or bad) have you seen with baggying?
