"In My Bathroom Cupboard" – Glitter Spray

My husband has been suggesting I start an “In My Bathroom Cupboard” series for quite some time. People email in all the time asking about the many different products I use .  This series is designed to answer some of those questions.

I thought I would start with glitter spray. Glitter spray is an item all moms-of-girls should have in their cupboard. It’s very useful for dance competitions, cheer or other activities, school crazy hair days, or even just a little “pop” once in awhile.

My twins had a dance competition this weekend and part of the dance makeup for us is always glitter in the hair. When I took the girls to the competition some of the other moms were ohhhhing and ahhhhing over the glitter look. And BAM!!! I decided to throw glitter spray up as my first post.

Here’s my advice. You can go to Claire’s or another girl accessory store and spend about $5-7 for a small can of glitter spray. But who wants to??

I go to Walmart and buy glitter spray from the craft section (sometimes it’s found up by the party supplies too) for about $3 for a big can. They have silver, gold, or rainbow glitter.  It looks like this, and is non-toxic and washes out easily.  The color of the cap is the color of the spray.

Some glitters I have used (before I figured out craft glitter) wouldn’t stick to the hair and would fall out in 2 minutes. Or one question I get a lot is “does it remain sticky in the hair after washing”. The answer is NO! I personally think craft glitter is perfect. It sticks to the hair and stays in, but will wash out with ease too.

Here’s a pict of my daughter with the glitter in. The picts really don’t do it justice since it is much easier to see in person, but look close and you can see it.

Happy Hairdoing!
