Tik Tok has served as an app that can sometimes give us genuine hacks and sometimes fake hacks that are basically taking the piss out of its viewers. Although I don’t have the app it hasn’t stopped many of my friends and family sending through Tik Tok hacks. When I say many I mean MANY. I feel that this most recent video sent to me was a bit of a hint hint because my flyaways are a little out of control currently. I do use Olaplex, BUT in my defence I haven’t been on it that much and plus I’ve been working out more in preparation for a May photoshoot (details soon). I haven’t really bothered washing my hair as much because of the constant working out so therefore a sexy field of flyaways.
So apparently you can tame your flyaways with simple dental floss. This shit looks too good to be true, I had to try it. It’s seemed easy enough with you simply gliding floss from the part down your hairline. When I saw this on a few videos what stood out to me was the fact that the people were using what looked like the worlds thickest floss. I mean it looked like thick ass wool. My floss is a skinny deal, have I been using the wrong floss? It had to be fake!
Here’s my before, wow hot trash! As you can see I have significant flyaways (and a massive forehead- that obviously can’t be fixed with floss).
So I started at the roots and slid the floss down my hair. The first time I saw absolutely NOTHING! I mean really I was thinking to myself “did I honestly fuck up a simple TIK TOK hack?”. So I gave it another try and this is the final results.
As you can see in my face I’m a bit confused, it didn’t really do that much. Sure there are a few less flyaways, but I could have gotten better results with a serum/cream/spray. This wasn’t really a hack it didn’t really do much – I put the photos side by side and even on the day I couldn’t really notice any difference at all. So this isn’t really a hack kids.
