Do you suffer from premature baldness? (Come on, don’t be shy.) Or are you just getting a little old and finding your full head of hair isn’t as full anymore? Then Great Looking Hair might be for you!
Beauty is practically guaranteed in the product name. Created by infomercial king Ron Popeil, who is famous for his clever line “But there’s more!”, Great Looking Hair Formula #9 is a spray-on hair product for those who feel like wigs and toupes are way too obvious. The spray is made up of tiny fibers that magically become fake hair follicles once they contact skin.
Essentially, it’s a spray-on wig…genius! By clinging to the few hair strands left on the head, the spray gives limp, lifeless hair some body and can even be used to fill in completely bald sections. If you’re worried about damaging your hair, don’t be. The makers of Great Looking Hair promise the product won’t harm what precious hair you have left. The spray-in hair can also be washed out in a shower, also ensuring you’ll have to buy a lot of cans.[pullquote]This just goes to show that any product,no matter how far-fetched and silly it seems to be, will have its loyal customers.[/pullquote]
Let’s be real—this is a product that will be used daily. You can’t exactly have a lot of hair one day and not a lot the next. The product is for people of all hair colors and comes in the shades auburn, dark brown, light brown, black, medium brown, silver black, silver-brown and white.
The spray is idiot-proof and easy to use. All you have to do is spray the product onto your head, wait two minutes, brush it out and voilà! Although the product sounds like a Halloween accessory at best, over 1 million cans have been sold worldwide and plenty of users have written gushing online reviews. This just goes to show that any product,no matter how far-fetched and silly it seems to be, will have its loyal customers.
