Electrically Conductive Hairspray - does what it says on the can.

Now you can go back to your tinfoil hatless appearance and maintain protection against brainwave thieves.

Also available with dye under the name 'Just for Paranoid Men'.

       Maybe it's Maybelline... maybe it's Faraday.   

       +1 for [2fries].   

       Incidentally, red hair is fairly electrically conductive, due to the presence of some form of melanin that forms a natural organic conductor. So, we ought to be able to discover whether redheads are less susceptible to thought control. It's also been noted that redheads are disproportionately represented amongst victims of lightning strikes (3.8% of lightning strikes causing death or hospitalization, as opposed to 2% redheads overall).

       Tip: Use product after going through the airport screening machine, if you want less hassle when traveling.

       But the effect only last f'r a day.

       ^There's a Detective Coulombs joke out there somewhere..and I thought molar conductivity was when a piece of tinfoil lands on a filling..

       Spray-on tinfoil would have many culinary uses as well.

       They are - because they're so obsessed with mirrors that nothing else gets through.

       What if it actually works?
beanangel, Dec 19 2016
  

       It probably would. It's unlikely that anyone wearing conductive hairspray would have their thoughts remotely controlled or monitored.

       //Incidentally, red hair is fairly electrically conductive, due to the presence of some form of melanin that forms a natural organic conductor// - I thought it was because of the high proportion of metallic copper

       Fillings are definitely weak spot. Anything that can pick up radio can be used for subconscious mind control. Good news: I had my last mercury filling removed; Bad news: my root canal pins are picking up Fox News.

       I misread this as Electorally Conducive Hairspray.

       I misread it initially as "ants eating small gorillas", but I may need to see my optician, or try to.

       Just dont forget to ground it. Tin foil hat withount grounding actually acts as an antena and may redirect evil waves into brain. And, with that, have a think about lightning safety-conductive and grounded hair would attract lightning soooo well...

       //I may need to see my optician,   

       I had a sight test over here, I couldn't read even the top lines.

       Polish guy goes for an eye test. "Can you read the bottom line?" "Read it? I know him!"

       electrically conductive hairspray might go down well with the longer haired humans. Would stop all that static-y fly away nonsense they tend to complain about. I suggested some light drizzle as a solution* but this was met with much wailing and gnashing of teeth by my long haired human. Research suggests electrically insulating properties are desirable in hair care products... leading to "volume" "bounce" and "lightness". I assume this is some form of rudimentary imitation of fiberglass loft insulation for the head, although coming with incredibly high maintenance. My gift of a 2 cubic ft sphere of rockwool with a head-sized hole in the bottom is going to be a revelation on her birthday.   

       *If drizzle were a resource of any kind, Macclesfield will be boom town again!
