Egg whites* wouldn't be as heavy as those bottles of salad dressing.

*Soap bubbles don't last long enough to shape and shoot even without the heat from the lights so egg white was/is used. Now, for the sake of all the gods don't go around telling everyone that I've let out one of Hollywood's secrets or they'll be sending someon

There's a chemical you can add to polymerize soap so the bubbles last almost indefinitely. The problem with it is that when it sits too long, it's practically a plastic, and you have to use acetone to dissolve it.

My grandmother used Prell for years and had the frizziest hair second only to Buckwheat. I'd bet that it could be used to remove road tar from your car.

I have used Prell before but we just get Suave all the now. I can't remember it making my hair frizzy though.
