Posting on Instagram, Dani separated her hair into two equal sections and placed the belt of a dressing gown over the top of her head
Dani began the clip by brushing her hair and lifting a dressing gown belt on to the top of her hair.
She explained that it’s important to evenly part the hair, before tying one side out of the way.
‘It’s literally so simple. You get the front part of your hair and put it over the dressing gown, then get another bit of hair from behind and put it under,’ she said.
Continuing to demonstrate the hack, she added: ‘And then get another piece of hair and do over and under.
‘It’s not like a proper plait or like that anything, it’s just so it curls.’
Dani who was wearing hair extensions during the hack, said she thinks it could be easier to do on shorter hair.
