Most South African women over the age of 30 would not be surprised by this but in the age of flat irons, it's both surprising and amusing to see a video of someone flat ironing their hair with an actual clothes iron.
American rapper, Cardi B made headlines for doing exactly that when she took to her Instagram late last year while getting ready for a public appearance and her followers could see her stylist finishing off her look with a clothing iron.
In the video, Cardi can be heard holding her breath as the iron is held close to her scalp and then ironed away before adding "ay, sliiiick"
This trick allegedly helps one achieve that super flat look right at the top of the wig in addition to ensuring all the fly-aways and stray hairs lay extremely flat.

We also advise laying your hair on a suitable surface or putting it on a wig head and not while it is on your head.
