If you can dream it, you can do it.
A YouTuber by the name of Bunny Meyer (grav3yardgirl) has managed to gain quite a following by taking an absurd, guerilla approach to DIY beauty projects, and while she does waste some perfectly good snack food in this recent video, she also manages to impress by curling her hair using nothing but Cheetos, bobby pins, and...a lot of enthusiasm.
Here’s the video in its entirety followed by a step-by-step breakdown of the process.
Using damp hair and the help of bobby pins (since Cheetos just aren’t as adhesive as standard curlers), Bunny gets to work.
(As you’ll see, there’s nothing here that’s very different from the normal process of curling your hair, save for the snack food on your head.)
It takes about 45 minutes to get the job done, since this isn’t the intended use for the product, but once it’s done it looks like a headful of bright orange curlers.
Then, you move right on in to the application of heat to get the hair to curl. The smell must be nothing short of enchanting.
Out comes the first curler and…
Success? I wouldn’t have bet on that. As she continues to remove them, it becomes clear that this...sort of works.
Of course, it’s not without its drawbacks, namely that you’re ready for a night out on the town while covered in orange Cheeto dust, but that’s the cost of doing business here.
Lest you think this sort of thing is a departure for Bunny Meyer, here she is. Doing the exact same thing. Only with marhsmallows.
This goes about as well as you’d think. Especially once the marshmallows are heated.
