Using Glitter In Hair

Post by RiaB-Artist on Fri Mar 08, 2013 7:18 am

When the weekend comes around I want to add glitter to my do for fun but I find it tends to rain glitter around me. Is there any product that can make it stick better or do I just have to deal with it? I am using a dry cosmetic glitter that I sprinkle with a brush in my hair.

I haven't tried either, but you could either use hairspray straight after the glitter goes on, or maybe try mixing the glitter with hairgel??

My 3 year old has to have a little gel in her hair while her fringe is growing out. Her pot of gel has a little holographic silver and gold in it- really not too much. After we use it on the hair, and we dont uses too much. we just poof a little of whatever colour she feels like or matches what she is wearing.

Wal-Mart carries the glitter hair spray in the party section..where you get balloons and goodie bag stuff for birthday parties.

I use glitter A LOT for theatre (lots of fairies!) I spray with hairspray (I always use Finesse Unscented aerosols), apply glitter, spray again. Holds very well.

How I apply the glitter varies on the effect wanted... stripes I usually use a poofer bottle with a wider opening to pour it where I want it, over sparkle poof or sprinkle, etc.

I hate the glitter sprays as they get everywhere and stick.
