12 batshit things every girl has done with their hair at one point or another

Things that no amount of coconut oil could fix

1. Slept on a jersey/something of equally shiny material to keep it straight.

Back in the days when we were BET into our GHDs (or if you still are, no hate), and we didn’t have the money or the self-confessed notions to fork out on a silk pillowcase.

Not to worry though, ’cause Penneys do them now.

2. Pencil curls.

Bit of lead to the head. Be grand.

3. Paper bag curls.

Listen, it may work, but even she can see she looks like a bit daft doing it.


4. … Actually, anything that involved curling your hair without a curling wand.

5. Literally ironed your hair.


Question – how is this so weird but raking a GHD through your locks is socially acceptable? Did we body shame the humble iron?

Makes you think …

6. Attempted to style it with a tool specifically designed for a doll/plastic hair.

Mary-Kate and Ashley crimpers, anyone?!


7. Beetroot rinse.

“Yes, this root vegetable will DEFINITELY dye my hair purple!”

We’ve never looked at a vegetable in the same way.


8. Beer rinse.

“Where’d all those leftover cans from Christmas go?” your dad calls up the stairs and you sit head over the both ready to skull a can of Bud over yourself.

9. An egg mask.

Apparently, this actually works. But still. The mess


10. Cutting it with a paper scissors.

ALWAYS a recipe for disaster. Always. There is a reason why hairdressers don’t use these.


11. … Or taken a razor to it.

You know that moisture bar on your snazzy Venus razor? Yeah, doesn’t look so great in your roots.

12. Putting “highlighter” streaks in your hair.

School is boring, man.
