Women are curling their hair using tampons and maxi pads

For…reasons.

LADIES – IF YOU ever get caught in the rain without any access to heated styling tools, hit up the nearest tampon machine. Really.

Last week Tina of the YouTube channel MakeupWearables posted a tutorial for ‘maxi pad curls’, folding pads into cylinders and twisting them into her hair.

As well as giving truly massive curls, she claims that the absorbency of the pads helps damp hair dry faster:

It’s a bit bizarre, but using ‘feminine hygiene’ products to style your hair isn’t particularly new.

Back in 2013, YouTuber GlitterForever17 posted a video of her twisting tampons into her hair to get bouncy curls – she says the tampons are more comfortable than your regular foam rollers.

Have you seen my NEWEST Video?! Tampon Curls! And yes...I used actual tampons to curl my hair!!! Watch how amazing my curls came out and how you can use Tampons for more than one reason...PERIOD! Tee Hee! The link to watch is in my bio and right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gK-v63-rdvM #tampons #beauty #femininehygiene #feminine #hygiene #beautifulcurls #bouncycurls #howto #curlyhair #curls #noheat #noheatcurls #funhairstyles #easy #quick #noheathairstyles #period #menstral #PMS #beautiful #fun #amazing #shocking #wow #shocked #cool #curlyhairstyles Source: Instagram/glitterforever17

Surprisingly, the technique has left the realm of beauty YouTubers and entered real girl world:

Who knew tampons had more than one use? Lol. Pretty weird but hey they are more comfortable to sleep in than plastic rollers and they use no heat! #tampons #tamponcurls #curlyhair #noheat #rollers #crazyidea #lol #whoknew Source: Instagram/brini148

Gals – would you curl your hair with tampons in a pinch? Be honest.
