Cons or Downsides to Colored Hair Gel

I'm thinking of getting this as an option for DD at her Harmony Barbershop appointment....

The colored hair gel w/glitter.

We're going in December so the question of it "melting" isn't an issue, right?

Any downsides to getting colored hair gel/glitter? Does it become sticky (and then tangle up the hair) Does it "run"? Will it get all over her clothes? Is it hard to wash out? Is the glitter hard to remove?

Her appt is in the early morning, so she'll have it in all day.

I'd like to avoid a meltdown later in the day if something goes "wrong" with the colored hair gel.

Thanks!

It has been a few years since we have done it, but when DD did it the glitter was all over everything! She has white blond hair and they told us not to leave the gel in too long because it could stain her hair and not come out, so she was really in a panic about that!

It was very stiff and uncomfortable for her and I don't think she would get it done again, but her hair was long and thin and that could have been why it was so stiff, they had to use extra to get it to stay!

The colored gel was eliminated a few months ago.

No they still do glitter, just with clear gel. Rumor had it that a) the company they got the colored gel from stopped making it or went out of business, something like that, b) it was too difficult to work with and people complained about stains, and c) people were opting for that over BBB and Disney wanted to eliminate the less expensive option.

I am glad I found this board because I did not realize that you could make a reservation. Does anyone know what the cost is for a cut and/or a cut with the glitter?

Thanks,
Kristen
