Unusual Use for Hairspray!

During the first lockdown that started in March 2020, I decided to buy a bottle of hairspray to tame my crop. According to my hairdresser, if you have long hair, it will grow downwards unlike mine that was growing upwards and in all directions! I bought the biggest Loreal Elnett that was available but sadly thanks to my sensitive skin, it didn’t agree with me.

The huge bottle of Loreal Elnett has been sitting on our dressing table for over a year now when a few weeks a ago I had a Eureka moment.

Regular readers will know that I am an amateur calligrapher even though I don’t blog about it very much. The inks that I use are lovely to use but sadly not waterproof. I had been looking for a way to waterproof my work but to no avail.

One night, the thought that I might be able to use hairspray to waterproof my work came to my mind! The next day I googled my idea and found that it is possible even though it is not a popular solution. I decided to test it and I am pleased to say that so far it is working very well.
