TIP: if you are worried about the shaving cream getting into the egg shell, you can do the same process with Cool Whip and food color. See how to make COOL WHIP EASTER EGGS here. 

Every Easter we think of fun ways for the kids to enjoy dying and coloring their Easter Eggs. When you Dye Easter Eggs with shaving cream, the kids can get right in there and have fun in the shaving cream.  And the shaving cream will actually even help clean up the mess afterwards. And second to the fun tie dye colors on the eggs, the shaving cream is so cheap! You can pick up the shaving cream in most stores for under a buck! Make sure it is shaving cream and not shaving gel. The gel will not work like the shaving cream will.

Here is how you can dye Easter eggs with shaving cream to make swirl Easter eggs.

First get the normal food coloring out of your cabinets. Or make sure you pick up the cheap liquid food coloring dye at the store.

Get one or two cans of shaving cream – remember it has to say cream, the shaving gel will not work.

A glass pan or flat bottom bowl or dish to roll the eggs in. A metal pan will work too if you don’t have glass, it is just the glass will not absorb the color like the small pits and scratches in metal might.

You can follow the directions on the back of the food coloring dye to make fun new colors. Make sure you place it in a glass cup or small bowl so it won’t leave a stain behind.

Next spray a layer of shaving cream in the bottom of the glass pan. You only need it no deeper then one inch. Anything more then that will just be wasted.

Here is a great deal on Foam Shaving Cream It needs to be “shaving foam” not the “shaving gel”

Spread the shaving cream some what smooth so the coloring does not run down steep slopes and pool together.

Then with as many colors as you want to use, we found between 2-4 works best or it just blends together too much and creates brown or ugly green.

Our favorite food coloring Dye – McCormick Assorted Food and Egg Dye

Place the drops of the food coloring in random spots all over the layer of shaving cream. The more random the better the colors will swirl.

Next with a thin toothpick, or a small narrow stick or even a lollipop stick, drag the stick through the shaving cream in random lines. Large swirls and loops will give the layering effect.

Once you have the swirls the way you think looks great, place the Easter Egg in the shaving cream on one end.

Gently roll the Easter Egg in a straight line from one side to the other.

Carefully pick up the Easter Egg and gently place it on cardboard so it will not roll.

You can leave it there till the shaving cream starts to dry up. Usually about 5-10 minutes and you can then clean it.

To clean it take a paper towel and gently dry off the shaving cream off the egg.

Don’t worry the food coloring has already done its magic.

After you have all the eggs cleaned off and dried, now you can roll them around and check out your artistic work!

Our kids enjoyed every part. With the old tablets and vinegar, they always got bored and thought it smelled.

Using shaving cream our kids thought it smelled great and had fun at every part of the project!

Getting to watch the shaving cream fly out of the can when they sprayed it into the pans, and then even had fun smoothing it all out.

It was fun for us to watch them strategically place each dot of food coloring.

They will tell you the best part was the rolling it in the cream and then the drying part when they got to see their fun work!How to dye eggs with shaving cream, Shaving Cream SWIRL eggs, Easter Eggs, #Easter, How to make swirled easter eggs

So make it a fun night with your kids. Share this with your family and learn how to dye Easter Eggs with shaving cream. They will make fun bright designs that will win any Easter Egg coloring contest out there!

And then when you are all done you have some fun looking eggs ready for egg salad sandwiches, potato salad and all the fun things you can make with hard boiled eggs!

What I liked about it:

My daughter has long, thick naturally wavy hair.  As you can see in the before photo below it gets a little frizzy. We plugged in the Hair Straightener Brush and put it up to about 355 degrees.  I will be honest I did NOT really think this was going to work very well. With one pass of the brush through her hair, we both were in shock.  We both began to smile and quickly brushed through the rest of her hair. Could it really be that easy? In less than 5 minutes her hair went from frizzy waves to silky smooth.

After a full 8 hours of school her hair still looked amazing. But in cross country practice they ran in the rain. Her hair did start to get a bit frizzy and from the rain, but still looked better than it normally would have.  In my 11 year old daughters words,  “The brush is amazing”.

We were sent the brush to try out, but all opinions are our own! I would tell you if we did not like it, lol. But actually we happen to LOVE it!

UPDATE: We tested it with very curly hair!

Hi, Tami here. I work for Sarah and got the chance to try this awesome straightening brush out on my daughter Courtni who happens to have thick, curly locks. Perfect for a real test on any straightening product.  She actually really does love her curls thankfully, but enjoys straightening her hair some times too. Unfortunately it can take us an hour and half at the least when we go to do it using the straightener we have. which runs about $50 at the store.

First off, make sure you are going to use a heat protectant on your hair, very important! That brush gets hot. I will suggest also if you have thick and/or curly hair you may want to brush through it first. We used a wet brush, (the only brush we will touch these curls with) because it tangles really easily and when the straightener got to those tangles it hurt her head.

While overall this may not have done the job the one our hairstylist uses on her does, it did just as good as our straightener we have at home. We didn’t have to go over each section as many times as we do the straightener either, so that saved us a lot of time. I was really impressed with the amount of time we spent. You ready for this? It only took us 45 minutes! That cut our straightening time in half! I was really impressed with that.

Courtni felt like it did better on the ends of her hair and left them less wiry looking too, I think I agree with that. I did find that holding the hair tight really helped a lot. Also going in larger sections than I traditionally can do with the straightener helped it too. It seemed to straighten better that way. Go nice and slow and you should be able to get great results.

Overall I would say this is definitely worth the price and a good product you have. It takes a bit to get used to, but Courtni is 13 and could’ve done it on her own I am sure.

I also think it will make the day two touch ups easier than they are with the straightener, another bonus!
