It Seems Strange That She's Putting Tin Foil In Her Hair, But The Reason Behind It Is Genius
This trick is almost too easy. I can't believe no one thought of it earlier, especially considering how long people have been trying to get lovely curls from straight hair. In ancient civilizations, women used a variety of natural tools to curl their hair, as well as man-made precursors to today's curling irons. Hair was often set in curls using either wet clay or a jelly of quince seeds, which was brushed out when dry. Women in imperial Rome, especially, favored masses of wavy curls or tight ringlets. The modern curling iron was first patented in 1866 by Sir Hiram Stevens Maxim. It was followed by the first straightener, invented by Marcel Grateau in 1872.
