Need a quick pick me up sure to make you feel magical? Add some glitter to your hair! No really, you can’t be in a bad mood with glitter in your hair. It’s science. Create Sparkly Glitter Roots Hair Tutorial is just what you need to brighten your day.
When I told my daughter I was going to put glitter in her hair for this unicorn party she thought I meant just a bit of a sprinkle. When I said, “No, I mean I am going to put your hair in pony tails and then put glitter from the top to the bottom with hair gel.” she thought that was the coolest thing ever. Her exact words were, “Mommy, you’re the best mom in the world. And the funnest!”
If you are one of those that runs from the glitter aisle this might not be for you but you love the stuff like I do you’re going to have so much fun with this! Before you get started here’s what you are going to need:
- Dry Shampoo Spray
- Clear Hair Gel
- Craft Glitter
- Paint Brush
I don’t have a step by step (I was racing the sun) but I can tell you it is really easy to do. First, prep the hair by spraying the dry shampoo down the part. This will help in washing out the glitter later. Put some hair gel in a bowl and mix in your glitter. Using your paint brush, apply the glitter down as if you were painting the hair, from top to bottom. If you or your child has a sensitive scalp just place a little bit to see how she/he reacts.
We used three different colors of glitter here: pink, aqua, and purple.
When you are ready to wash it out, start by combing out as much as you can. Most of the glitter will come out after pretty easily because the hair gel has set and is dry. I would suggest doing this outside or you will have glitter everywhere.
I hope you enjoyed this Create Sparkly Glitter Roots Hair Tutorial. My little guests loved this activity and said they want to do it again…like everyday. I don’t think that is going to happen but it is really pretty. This would be great for Halloween too.
