Need help? Here’s some answers to our commonly asked questions

What if I don’t have a cardboard box/envelope?

You can use whatever you have to hand! As long as you have a container that won’t be damaged by the heat and can hold your hairdryer in place. If you don’t have a cardboard envelope, you can make one out of two pieces of A4 card. 

What if I don’t have a hairdryer?
