Meant for those who like the bald look, but need the warmth of a full head of hair. Never have a bad hair day again. Bows and ribbons that seem to float would be a new fashion trend.

       This would be extraordinarily useful for those who were thinking of shaving their head (due to, for example, a noticable thinning of the hair) but are unsure whether the shape of their skull would make them look like a Sean Connery, a Bruce Willis or a particularly belligerent English football thug.   

       Spray on and wash out transparent dye would be especially handy for such purposes. Also an amusing jape at parties.

       Sounds OK, but how are you supposed to make your hair invisible? Why don't you just use it on your whole body, like the Invisibility Cloak?

       [verobay]: Wouldn't that just render the top layer of your skin invisible?

       I'd like my hair to be transparent, *but*, it could be given different refractive indices or have prism-like properties.   

       When someone looks at you, it'll always seem as if your head is like a barbeque or a hot summer highway. Everything in the background will have that nice heat-wavy look. If you had long hair, you'd even be able to use it sort of like a periscope and peek around corners. Your head of hair could become a window ornament that splits the light into the colour spectrum.

       I'd like to compliment a few of the people that have made my day. I'd like to thank bpslob, waugsqueke, wes, verobay, and centauri. And if you covered your hair in transparent hair dye...wouldn't that have the same effect as...doing nothing? The dye is transparent... not your hair... how can you see through something that's solid? The invisible man idea could either get icky or sticky.

       Wouldn't this just leave your hair colour the way it is?? Actually, your hair will get worse, because thats what most dyes do.
