    This Woman's Country Is Extremely Hot, So She Made A TikTok In Which She Curled Her Hair On A Pole Outside

    Maybe I don't have to buy a curling wand after all!

    Damaris Sweetie, a 27-year-old bank officer, lives in the Solomon Islands.

    The Solomon Islands is a nation of islands in the South Pacific that is hot and humid all year round. According to its tourism site, the average temperature is 27 degrees Celsius — aka 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

    In the olden days, people used to show how hot it was outside by frying an egg on the sidewalk. But Damaris has discovered a new way to showcase high temperatures, and it's garnered more than 17 million views on TikTok:

    She wrapped a piece of her hair around a pole, held it there, and then...VOILA! It curled!

    Some people were skeptical that her hair wasn't already curly before the video (since she's pulling at it in the beginning), so she made another one to prove she was telling the truth:

    "I don't know why I came up with that idea," Damaris told BuzzFeed. "It was so hot that day that I decided, why not try and curl my hair?"

    When asked whether she would ever try to curl her whole head this way, she said, "I'll be on sick leave if I stand in the sun all day. My hair is too big."
