I am going to put this out there, that these pictures I am about to post are not my best and will most likely leave you with nightmares. You are forewarned!!
I saw something on Pinterest the other day and decided to give it a try. I am going to attempt to curl my hair with just tin foil and a flat iron! (Also heat protectant spray, I am not that crazy!)
These are the main tools you will need! You may also want one of these….

OK, Step number One:
Section off your hair, I have personally very fine hair so I only needed to section off the crown and the rest of the hair was left down.
Step Number Two:
Take a small section of hair, not to much because you are going to have to work magic in a second.
Step Number Three:
Wrap that section around your fingers. One Finger is a tight pin curl, and as you add more fingers the looser the curl will be. I opted for 2 fingers this time around, although it wasn’t pretty lol.
Step Number Four:
Wrap each “curl” in tinfoil. The best way I found was place the foil under the “curl” in the middle, as close as you can get it, fold each side over each other and the fold up the bottom. You can tighten up the top part so the hair doesn’t fall out. Then when you have done your whole head, you too can pull off this sexy look!
Step Number Five:
Place the flat iron on the tinfoil and hold it over the curl for 15 to 30 seconds, You may have to do it 2 to 3 times in different spots on the foil, depending on how big you made the pocket, I had to do it twice in two spots per foil. *****WARNING***** The foil Pockets get HOT, and you will burn yourself at least once, if not 4 times like I did.
Step Number Six:
Once the foils are cool, which can take one minute to 8 eight minutes, depends on how hot you have your flat iron, pull the down or unfold them and this is what you get…. Sexy right??
Step Number Seven:
Run your fingers, comb, or brush through the curls part it how you want it and style it, I had a bit too much protectant spray in my hair so it went flat up top and I used a brush instead of my fingers, so it poofed out at the bottom… But you know what? It worked! Its been 2 days and I still have a curl, its pulled back in a pony tail right now.
So my final thoughts It works, and your spouse and children will mock you for having that much foil in your hair, and the curse words that will fly EVERY time you burn your neck or face.
