I first saw this video on handbag.com about how to curl your hair using tin foil about a year ago and I’ve been wanting to try it for ages and just never got around to it! Here is the video below, where Ben Cooke shows you how to create amazing curls using tin foil and your hair dryer… (sorry there is an ad on the video – it’s not mine it’s handbag.com’s and it’s just automatically on the start of it :()

So the curls look a little crazy in the video, but I kind of like the idea of having a huge mane of wild curls! So finding myself at home alone one night I decided to give this a try… and here are the results.

In the video they recommend starting with dry hair and using a blow-dry spray, so I started with dry hair and used trusty Tigi Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Booster.

I have a lot of hair (some of it is hidden behind my shoulders in the pic) and this was the first time I’ve tried this technique and it took me an hour to do – which if I compare to using regular curling tongs is about the same time.

But the curls are amazing! Mine didn’t come out as tight as the curls in the video, but to be honest I like the slightly looser curl. The curls are still tighter and more corkscrewy than the ones I get by using the curling tong however.

You can see in the pic I didn’t include my fringe in the curling as I thought it would look too crazy!

I also use Tigi Curl Booster on my hair straight out of the shower to get good beachy hair and when AndyLou and I went along to meet Tigi for the launch of the Tigi Urban Antidotes Shampoo and Conditioner range they used this on my hair and I loved the results.
