What you'll need:

1. Chopsticks

Pro tip: If you're curls are bigger, you might want to think about using a wider object, like the handle of a wooden spoon. Just make sure the item isn't plastic.

2. A flat iron.

3. Your favorite drugstore hand lotion.

Here's what you do:

1. Break apart the chopsticks. You'll only need one of the pair.

Pro tip: You won't have to do all of your strands. Gurgov explained that curls trends to be very inconsistent, so just look for straighter pieces on the top layer.

5. Repeat throughout your head.

6. Once you're done, grab some hand lotion. It will lightly coat your strands and clam any additional frizz. Flip your hair forward and run your fingers through. Any leftover lotion will moisturize your hands!

Pro tip: Shake the hair at the roots for added volume.
