In the clip, Monique – who goes by the username @moniquemrapier demonstrated how she managed to turn her hair from “dry, brittle, dead and dull” to the enviably glossy look she has today.

Monique explained: “Before going to bed apply a lightweight oil to your ends. Then grab a fuzzy sock (yes you read that right) and use it to protect your ends from damage plus friction while you sleep. Use a scrunchie to keep it in places”.

According to Monique, this technique will “lock in moisture overnight and help hydrate your hair while making it silky smooth”.

Her own long, shiny tresses make for the perfect advertisement, and many admiring followers have been left reaching for their sock drawer.

One admiring follower wrote: “I just did it for the first time yesterday and already see a difference!”

While another gasped: “I’ve started this, and oh my gosh!”

Fielding queries in the comments section, Monique recommended OUAI oil “for everyday light use”, given that “it’s so lightweight and not greasy the next day”.

She also would recommend Argan Oil which she describes as being “amazing for this”.
