It's not complicated and it's not new. Baggying is covering your hair in a plastic bag or shower cap.
There are two types of baggying:
What's the point of baggying?
Moisture leading to:
Moist and hydrated hair is less prone to breaking; that's how it allows you to retain more length.
Don't have a shower cap? No worries, just use an actual bag and hold it down using a hair band for the whole head or an elasticated band for the ponytail.
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?
