The process involves washing your hair as normal before applying a curling product and filling up a bowl of warm water. Then, simply dip your hair in the bowl, before scrunching the water out with your hands. Repeat the process four times to create smooth curly clumps.

TikTokers are swearing by the product to create amazing curls and hydrated locks.

Check out these examples below...

So how does it work?

Well founder of Only Curls Lizzie Carter explained: "We always advise our customers to apply curl products onto soaking wet hair.

"This is because curls clump together better on wet hair as hair is smoothest when wet. Applying products to soaking wet hair creates the smoothest, frizz free curls.

"The bowl method helps create amazing curl clumps and forces more water into the hair for extra hydration.

"Some of the product you apply will be rinsed off in the process, but since it goes back into the bowl that you reuse some will reapply to the hair. The water will also help the product absorb better into the hair resulting in extra hydration."

And people are loving the method on TikTok, with one person commenting on the platform: "I did it today too and my curls looked so much better. This method works so well and now I will keep a bowl in my bathroom."

Meanwhile another said: "I STARTED DOING THIS AND OML."

And a third added: "Oh my gosh. I tried this tonight and my curls are so bouncy and happy!!! 🤯😍 I didn’t know they could be like this!!"

Meanwhile, others offered some handy tips, with one person adding: "Cold water helps the curl to curl better and give less frizz. Use a T-shirt towel to remove excess water and product."

We are so trying this.
