5 Ways You Never Expected To Use Hair Spray
Without a solid hairspray, a day that starts with beautifully sculpted curls, can end with flat and lifeless strands that don’t even have the slightest wave. But did you know that hairspray doesn’t just have to be used for your hair? Below are the top 5 ways to use hairspray, that you never would have considered!
Quick Dry Top Coat
Most of us probably have a love-hate relationship when it comes to nail polish. It’s the best way to perfect your look for a night out, or show off your nail art skills, but if you don’t wait long enough for them to dry, you end up with a dried, lumpy mess. You can either use hairspray as its own form of top coat by spraying each nail while the color is mostly wet, or spray over mostly wet top coat for an added layer of protection.
Keep Fresh Cut Flowers Alive
When you have a bouquet of flowers freshly cut from the florist, or your garden, ensuring they thrive in your home is ideal. Sure, you can use the flower preservative packets that can be found everywhere. But sometimes they’re not readily available, leaving you to use hairspray as an alternative. All you need to do is spray the underside of each leaf and petal, and your flowers will last a long time!
Reduce Runs In Your Stockings
The negatives of runs in your best pair of pantyhose are endless. It can ruin your entire outfit, and be twice as embarrassing if you don’t notice the runs right away. When you buy a new pair (likely after yours has a run in it), give them a good coat of hairspray. Once it dries up, you’ll have a pair of tights that will not ladder or tangle!
Fur & Lint Removal
Whether your biggest problem is your pet leaving fur all over your clothing, or running out of dryer sheets and having lint covered clothing, removing those specs are a pain. If you notice some fur or lint lingering on any article of clothing, simply spritz some hairspray onto a cloth or rag, and rub it against your clothes. All of the unwanted fur and lint will adhere to the hairspray, and you’ll never look better.
Make Ink Stains Invisible
Ink can be finicky, and accidents tend to happen. So if you find yourself in a situation where your pen exploded, and the ink landed on your clothing, furniture, or any other fabrics, you now have a fix. Here, you have two options: use hairspray on the ink stains, and scrub with a toothbrush or rag until it’s gone, or give the stain a generous helping of hairspray and put the material in the wash (if you can). The sticky base of hairspray will allow the ink to fade with friction, making it look like nothing happened!
Maybe you have an extra bottle of hairspray laying around, or maybe you just want to save some money with a quick fix. No matter the case, these amazing ways to use hairspray are undeniable convenient.
