Mila began by taking an aluminum ponytail square, used for cooking, and wiping it in a downward motion over her head – and the fuzzy locks of hair could no longer be seen.
Mila started by taking a square of aluminum foil and wiping it in a downward motion over her head, making the flyaway strands of hair disappear.
Tin foil is thought to work because the metal is a “conductor,” meaning it gathers and transfers electrical chargers from your hair, according to Well + Good.
This nifty trick also restores shine and doesn’t leave hair brittle or damaged.
To make your fragrance last longer, Mila recommends that you first apply a fragrance-free lotion to your skin.
According to Mecca, hydrated skin gives perfume “something to cling to,” meaning it doesn’t dry out as quickly.
For the third and final hack, Mila explained how to light multiple wick candles at the same time without burning your fingers.
To do this, simply light one wick and then tilt the candle to the side so the flame catches the second wick.

Many seemed most surprised by the first hair hack.
“I can’t wait to try the foil trick!” one person wrote, another said, “Hair spray and a tissue also help with flyaways.”
‘The one with the candle! Thanks!’ a third added.
