No that will not do, you can get a mini torch for like 15-20 buck, at least you can use lighters

Lighters take a while also, I would say spend the $15-$20 for the blow torch and save for future use, of course.

Yeah, don't use a blow dryer, takes way too long. We did it for atleast 5-8 minutes and it only shrunk a little but.
Not to sound like a fag but i got mine from the salon and its SUPER hot. I have only used it on low until i used it on the shrink and it worked fine

Thats funny, I guess if the blow dryer gets hot enough, it makes it like a heat gun, so great use that sucker!
