Manga Head: Hair Product, Manga History (Dessert Topping, Floorwax Still to Come?)

New from Garnier UK: Manga Head, a hair product lets you "create your own superhero hair," as BoingBoing noted today.

The web site for the product contains not only information on seven types of "manga hairstyles" for you to try but also a section called "Manga Story" (subtitled either "What's Manga All About?" or "Why Is Japan So Coooool?" [sic], depending on where you are in the site), done up as a kind of six-page mini-manga. The whole web site's presented in flash, unfortunately, so I hope they keep this curiosity up here.

For maximum fashion potential, of course, you'll want to use Manga Head in conjunction with Nadesicco Black, "inky black [contact] lenses that make [eyes] look like they have gigantic monochromatic pupils" (Wired 13.5).

NB: Manga Head's "Win a Trip to Tokyo" contest is only good for residents of the UK, dangit...

Given my medical condition, CDS (coiffure-deficiency syndrome), I wouldn't know. Ask Kate or The Queen, though - as users, they should have the scoop...

Well, Perilous One, I also use Got2Be's Hair glue & both wash out nicely with paint thinner.....no, wait, that's what I DRINK when I'm washing my hair with clarifying shampoo. Followed up with a good conditioner chaser. Coconut, of course, as they haven't made olive-flavored yet....

Thank you, Wombats!
