Your curls have never looked this good and you won’t be able to believe the method that she uses to get these perfect ringlets. As it turns out, she makes this happen with a simple item that can be found in any kitchen. You can actually get perfect curls by going and grabbing your strainer.

This may not seem like a feasible idea but we are very impressed with the results that Liz is getting. It is hard to argue with them, you know?

Instead of utilizing the diffuser attachment on a hair dryer that most women normally rely upon, she stumbled into this hack by mistake and has not looked back since. Why would she? The curls that she is showcasing here speak for themselves.

“Just learned that my pasta strainer is better at diffusing my waves than my diffuser,” she wrote in the video. The video may only be five seconds long but lots of people are loving every moment of it.

It was not long before other women decided that they were going to try out the hack at their own homes. “OMG I can tell this is gonna be a game changer,” said one viewer. The comments were full of praise for Liz and it is easy to see why.
