Hair Hack - Water Bottle Hair Challenge: Does it Work? Beauty Experts Weigh in

The water bottle challenge, also known as the DIY Dyson Airwrap, is all over instagram and everyone from hair stylists, to beauty bloggers is weighing in on whether it really can curl your hair just as well as the uber-expensive Dyson Airwrap  ($600.00 and there are waitlists at many retailers to buy one).  So what is it, how do you do it, and does it work?

First you need to take a clean plastic water bottle and cut the top off.  Then cut an opening in the side of the bottle that is large enough to fit the nozzle of your hair dryer into it.  Needless to say, this has to be done carefully with a hobby knife.  

Twist a small section of your hair and insert it into the top opening of the bottle.  Place the dryer nozzle into the side opening of the bottle and dry for 30 seconds.  Slide the bottle off and use your fingers rather than a brush to separate the curl.  Voila!  


Try various heat settings on your hair dryer to see what works for your type of hair.

Use a setting product to help hold the curl.

Spray the curl after to maintain the style.  

The bottle gets really hot while using the dryer so let it cool down between each curl.  


The curls are long and loopy, not tight, so they add more volume than actual curl.

Many people found the hair tangled badly into a ratty mess.

If you don’t use any products the curls will fall out immediately.

The Dyson Airwrap uses air rather than heat, so using a water bottle and blow dryer still damages the hair over time.  If you curl your hair with a heated appliance every day you might want to consider investing in the Dyson Airwrap to protect the condition of your hair.

If you are on a budget or if you just want to curl your hair once in a while then the water  bottle hair hack can work in a pinch if you use products to set and hold the style, so in that case it's a win.
