    How I Tried TikTok’s Viral Wet T-Shirt Method For Shinier Hair

    I tried to use TikTok’s viral wet t-shirt method for shinier hair, and I’m not impressed. Here’s why it didn’t work for me and how you can improve your own results from this trend… and you should, because it actually works!

    Even though I already follow a fairly strict hair care regimen, I’m constantly looking for ways to make it better, whether it’s by using less heat, experimenting with new products, or trying out different hair hacks. I’ve spent the majority of the summer in LA and have observed that the water is different than it is where I typically dwell in San Francisco. Almost every time I wash my hair, it feels dry and straw-like, and things that generally make my hair feel silky smooth in San Francisco don’t always work in LA. So my mind was immediately peaked when I swiped onto a TikTok hair hack that promised super-soft and lustrous hair.

    When I say that Audrey Victoria’s results make the “liquid” hair craze appear like child’s play, I’m not joking. In the video, Audrey Victoria demonstrates the hair-care process that leaves her hair shinier than a new vehicle off the lot. Blinding reflections were present. I decided to test out the hack since the video has received over 1.4 million likes so far and other commenters claimed it worked for them.

    My usual routine for washing my hair begins with a scalp treatment and a hair mask applied to still-dry hair. Then, after I’m in the shower, I shampoo my hair twice, paying special attention to the scalp (I told you, my routine is rigorous). After that, I apply conditioner only to the ends of my hair. I rinse everything with cold water after letting the conditioner stay for two to ten minutes.

    I had to bring a cotton T-shirt into the shower with me because I needed one to test this hack. I began by shampooing as usual, but only once rather than twice, with the R+Co Essential Shampoo ($59), and then I washed it with warm water. I followed that by applying the R+Co Essential Conditioner ($59) and using my fingers to comb through my hair. After that, I wrung out any excess water from my cotton T-shirt so it wouldn’t drop before soaking it in hot shower water. I then wrapped the T-shirt around my hair and exited the shower to let it sit for 30 minutes. I set an alarm and walked around my house for a half hour to help me maintain track of time. I jumped back into the shower after the timer rang and rinsed my hair with cold water.

    The most annoying part of the entire process was undoubtedly letting my hair rest in the T-shirt for 30 minutes, but a close second was having to enter a cold shower after walking around my house wearing a wet T-shirt. Every time I wash my hair, I attempt to turn the water from hot to cold, but there was something distinctly unpleasant about stepping into a chilly shower.

    After practicing this hack, I thought about letting my hair air-dry, but since I only wash my hair once or twice a week at most, I needed to style it to last me the next few days. I chose not to prep my hair with any other products besides a heat protectant though because I wanted to make sure the hack actually worked.

    I used my typical Dyson Airwrap to give myself a blowout, and as I was styling my hair, I noticed that it was softer than usual. I took a moment to assess my appearance in the mirror when everything had dried and been styled, and I observed that my hair also appeared more shiny than usual. The real test was asking my lover, who, though not voluntarily, is very knowledgeable about the condition of my hair, if he detected a difference. I knew the hack had succeeded when he concurred that it was incredibly silky, shining, and definitely better-looking than usual.
