One woman has claimed to have completely transformed her hair with a simple yet highly effective beauty tip known as “hair slugging,” and you can try it yourself with a sock
One savvy beauty fanatic has given anyone looking to revitalize tired or lifeless hair a simple tip, and the unlikely answer is probably buried in your underwear drawer somewhere.
All hair loses a little shine every now and then, and you don’t necessarily have to spend a truckload of beauty products to bring it back to life.
As one resourceful woman demonstrated, you can rejuvenate your tresses through a process known as “hair slugging,” which you can try for yourself by simply digging up one of your old fluffy bed socks.
In a TikTok video that has racked up 63.7k likes and is counting, hair expert Monique explains that she believes this treatment is “literally the best thing for your hair” and claims that she managed to style her locks over a year and a half to completely change half.

In the clip, Monique – who is known by the username @moniquemrapier demonstrated how she managed to transform her hair from “dry, brittle, dead and dull” into the enviably shiny look she has today.
Monique explained: “Before you go to bed, apply a light oil to your ends. Then grab a fluffy sock (yes, you read that right) and use it to protect your ends from damage and rubbing while you sleep. Use a scrunchie to keep it in place”.
According to Monique, this technique will “lock in moisture overnight and help keep your hair hydrated while leaving it silky smooth.”
Her own long, lustrous locks are the perfect advertisement, with many adoring followers reaching for her sock drawer.
One admiring follower wrote: “I did it for the first time yesterday and I can already see the difference!”
While another gasped: “I started this, and oh my god!”
Monique answered questions in the comments section and recommended OUAI oil “for everyday light use” as “it’s so light and not greasy the next day”.
She would also recommend argan oil, which she describes as “amazing for it.”
