When Tori Locklear set up a camera near her mirror, she was planning to upload another one of those 'How to Curl Your Hair' instructional videos.

The result was much worse — and much funnier — when Locklear pulled the curling iron away and a chunk of her hair came away with it. Her reaction was, understandably, horror.

But when she uploaded the video a few months after recording, it seemed as though Locklear might be ready to laugh with the world.

"Me around October 2012 attempting to curl my hair, but instead something else happened. It burned off. Cool," the description says.

At least we hope she was ready for the attention, because the video has gained more than a million views since it was uploaded on Feb. 18.

The video has viewers asking how it is even possible to burn off your hair with a regular curling iron.

The American Academy of Dermatology has issued warnings to women against using too many chemicals and heat styling devices. Constant exposure to heat weakens the hair cuticle, that outside layer of scaly-looking, overlapping cells always shown closeup in shampoo commercials.

A dermatologist in the above warning said to think of hair like a steak, soft and flexible when raw but firmer and easier to break apart after it's cooked.

Yum, barbecued hair.
