Voltage Chemoluminescent Hair Gel for Halloween
I was browsing Nigel's site a couple of days ago and, with Halloween being so close, thought that ye olde Popgadget readers might be interested in a unique toiletry he mentioned.
Voltage iGlow is a sulf illuminating hair gel. By mixing fluorophors with an appropriate catalyst a chemical reaction occurs that produces the byproduct of light. No bulbs or batteries are necessary to create the glow, and the illumination shampoos right out. Essentially, wearing Voltage gel is the same as cracking open a raver glow stick and pouring the contents over your locks.
Directions are to open the container, add the powder (catalyst) to the gel (fluorophor suspension), run through hair, and dance! If you really want to maximize your potential glow for a short outing then heat up the gel with a hairdryer after application. The heat will make the gel burn much brighter, but it won't last nearly as long. A 2 oz tube is $11, and should be enough for a couple of people to use for highlights.
