Self-Glow Hair and Body Gel (Update)

Voltage iGlow

— October 13, 2007 — Fashion
iGlow hair gel creates its own light source, letting it flow in total darkness, indoors or out, for four to six hours. The gel is entirely self illuminating, requiring no charging or UV, black light or other light source.

Before iGlow, the only glow-in-the-dark products were glow sticks (toxic and sealed), items activated by black/UV lights, battery-operated blinkies, or rechargeable items. iGlow races ahead because it emits its own light source, with a builtin skin safety factor.

The product was specifically formulated for safe use on skin and hair. Tested and approved to FDA and EU safety standards, it's non toxic, non allergenic, temporary, and easily washes out after use. iGlow coats the hair with luminous color, without dying it -- it's even safe for permed or colour treated hair. You won't have to wait for months for your natural hair color to return.

$8.95 is a great price for a gel that can be used all year at raves, music festivals, Halloween, Christmas, on vacation, concerts or parties.

So how does it work?

Tiny, microscopic particles in the gel come together in the mixing process to produce a colorful glow that can be seen in the dark for at least 4 - 6 hours. Technically, it lasts over 24 hours at a diminishing intensity of luminance. Although iGlow Hair Gel is classified as a "temporary hair color," it does not actually color the hair cuticle. It "coats" the hair with color. The gel is the delivery medium for the luminescence.

The blue and green gels are colorless both in the mixing container and on the hair under normal lighting conditions. Yellow and orange show some color in the mixing container but isn't as evident in light areas. When light is reduced to half-light or darker, all four colors show up brightly.

The manufacturers have also introduced a "day tint" so that if you wear Yellow, for example, and go into a brighter area where the glow isn't apparent, it will show a yellow tint in the hair. In darker areas, the glow returns to full intensity. The gel's effect is activated as soon as the contents are mixed as instructed. It's meant for short- term use and should be washed out before going to bed. To remove, just shampoo.

iGlow comes in Blue, Green, Orange, Yellow, Hot Pink, Light Pink, White, Neon Green, Neon Blue.

iGlow is attracting rave reviews by the public and media in the USA, and recently, internationally too. Not bad for a technology that has only been on the market for less than 18 months, with no major publicity campaign... first conceived at a Rock Concert just over three and a half years ago.
