Beauty accounts all over instagram posted videos of water bottle waves: people all over the world creating curls with a water bottle and a hair dryer. It seems too easy and too simple to be true, so I put the beauty hack to the test to see if it really worked!
Watch me try curling my hair with a water bottle here:
Things you’ll need:
- A water bottle
- A hair dryer with a concentrator nozzle
Cut the top off of the water bottle to create more space to insert your hair. Cut another section the size of the hair dryer nozzle on the side of the bottle. Insert a small section of hair into the water bottle and then place the hair dryer on the edge of the bottle. Turn on the hair dryer and let it blow your hair in the same direction for 3-5 seconds. Take your hair out of the bottle.
OR… you can just get a curling iron!
Listen- I don’t recommend trying this at home. By my third attempt, my room smelled like burnt plastic and the water bottle started melting. Today it’s two days and 1 wash AFTER I tried this hack, and the strands that I curled are dry and brittle. In conclusion, its super fun to watch but it’s not something I would do to my hair again! Not to mention cutting up a water bottle takes a lot of effort and the bottle will melt throughout your styling session!
