I came across this video a while back, got buried with other things and basically forgot about it. But, it’s a quick and simple video on how-to get great curls from your flat-iron. One question that keeps cropping up on their comment board is, can you do this with your flat-iron and will it hurt your hair? The answer is yes, any flat-iron will work.

Starting with one to two-inch sections at the nape of the neck, spray section lightly with a thermal active spray, this will protect the hair as well as give it hold.
