Result #111: I successfully painted my head brown to then paint the town red.

#111: I will buy, use and spend a night out in public with magical spray paint hair.

Resolution: This resolution is going to be foolish on multiple levels.

First off, I've defended this product at one point in my life. I've never tried spray on hair, but I have said that I get it.

I have thinning hair. I partially blame damaging my scalp by dying my hair a lot as a young punk. I noticed that when I would dye my hair dark colors the dye would dye my skin as well. This would last for a couple days and my hair looked much fuller.

Though this may be true, it's hard to make any point with this infommercial playing in the background.

The other levels of foolishness are; even though I don't feel foolish trying spray on hair, I feel foolish thinking of the night that I'll have to go out with this stuff on my head. Finally, I'm sure whoever I hang out with will either also feel foolish, but more likely will do their best to make me feel MORE foolish.

Either way it's going to be fun.

I can't wait to report the results.

Update #1: Does this spray on hair really work?

Date: 9-7-2014

I bought a bottle of spray on hair a couple months ago. At first I was going to hold off using it until the night I was going to spray it on and go out for the night.

For some dumb reason I was thinking that it was a one-time use product.

Then I thought it would be insane to pay $9.99 for one use of spray hair.

Today I decided to give it a shot.

I'm kind of impressed.

At first I thought it was just going to color the skin on my scalp to create an illusion of hair but it actually does something to make the actual hair seem fuller.

When I actually use the spray on hair to go out for the night I'm going to have someone else apply the hair because as you can see, I missed a few spots.

As for the color?

It kind of matches.

Update #2: The Conclusion.

Date: 4-21-2015

At the beginning of this year I tested my spray on hair and wore it out in public for a farewell party that my friends held for me. Due to the fact that rarely saw these friends during my last year in Seattle, because of some internal conflicts going on, I spent most of the night anxiously drinking.

Of course this only led to awkwardness and more anxiety which led to more drinking. I remember there being moments of fun but forgot to pose for that many pictures to remember the night and to share as part of this hair experiment.

Everyone seemed to be impressed with the outcome of the spray on hair. The orange-ish/red tint to the color seemed to be more of a give away than the look of the sprayed hair. If I were to use this product as a genuine way to hide my thinning hair I would die my hair black in order to better blend the coloring. 

That said, I don't think I would ever use spray on hair as a genuine solution to my thinning hair. Other than the hairline hiding experiments I've been playing with as part of this resolution experiment I've come to grips that there is not much I can do about it and usually just shave my head.

Though I have to admit, novelty hair experiments are rather fun. Once I'm done with my Kingpin comb-over I think I'm going to go with a perm!

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
