Is it possible to get a high off of hairspray?

I've read that hairspray has butane in it so i tryed to huff it, i sprayed some in a bag and inhaled a couple of times but all i felt afterwards is a little tiredness which could be due to the fact it was night when i tryed it. has anyone else ever tryed this?

Re: Is it possible to get a high off of hairspray?

SWIM imagines that different manufacturers may use different propellants, but yes, some may use butane.

SWIM would urge OP to think twice about huffing butane. SWIM used to do lighter gas to the point that he wasnt just hallucinating, he was in a different world altogether and long term it started to fuck him up. He became obsessed that the universe ran in cycles, that everything repeated over and over and that under the influence he was sat at Gods side looping the universe for eternity. Fucking crazy ass shit. So take it easy dude.

Huffing hair spray is down right stupid. While SWIM does not recommend it, it would be safer to buy lighter fuel. Think of what hair spray is meant to do, and you are filling your lungs with it, on purpose!

Re: Is it possible to get a high off of hairspray?

Butane is the most commonly misused volatile substance in the UK. It is an organic compound found in natural gas and produced from petroleum. Highly flammable, it is a colourless, odourless, easily liquefied gas.

Butane gas is sold bottled as a fuel for cooking and camping. When blended with propane and other hydrocarbons, it is referred to commercially as LPG. It is also used as a petrol component, as fuel for cigarette lighters and as a propellant in aerosol sprays such as deodorants.

Propellant gases used as inhalants include Freon and compressed hydro fluorocarbons, which are used in various household and office products that come in aerosol spray cans, such as air freshener, computer keyboard cleaner spray (gas dusters, sometimes erroneously called "canned air"), non-stick cooking spray, aerosol insecticides, and aerosol hairspray.

The most common propellants are mixtures of volatile hydrocarbons, typically propane, n-butane and isobutane. All these have the disadvantage of being highly flammable.

Death from inhalants is generally caused by a very high concentration of fumes. Further concern is the additional toxicity resulting from either the physical properties of the compound itself, or additional ingredients present in a product.

How do solvents and volatile substances work?

When the fumes/chemicals from products are breathed in on purpose, they are absorbed through the lungs into the bloodstream. The chemicals in solvents are fat soluble and so pass rapidly to the brain and other body organs, making the effects kick in very quickly.

The effects from sniffing can vary from person to person. This depends upon their size, age, health, product sniffed, whether the person is used to sniffing and the environment they are sniffing in - for example, whether the person is on their own, with others, at a party, etc. The effect on the ‘sniffers’ emotions can also depend on the mood of the individual before sniffing. For example, if the ‘sniffer’ is happy beforehand then the ‘high’ will be greater.

Due to the rapid entry of the fumes/chemical into the bloodstream through the lungs, the effect will kick in within 20-30 seconds and last for the next 30-40 minutes.

However, the ‘high’ usually last only a few minutes. The duration of the experience depends on the product sniffed, for example, glue has a longer duration than butane.

The person sniffing solvents will often experience an initial feeling of euphoria, well-being and relaxation, as well as possible confusion and unsteadiness. The symptoms and effects from sniffing solvents are very similar to alcohol intoxication, although the speed of onset is much more rapid and can include the following:

• Drowsiness: the initial excitement is often followed by drowsiness
• Sickness
• Dizziness
• Slurred speech
• Loss of co-ordination
• Buzz - buzzing in the ears
• Light-headed - floaty feeling
• Chronic headaches
• Numbness and tingling in hands and feet
• Breathing difficulties
• Hallucinations
• Visual distortions - flashes of lights before the eyes
• Violent/aggressive behaviour
• Mood swings
• Loss of inhibitions
• Paranoia and anxiety
• Blackouts

(Some of the above effects are as described by current and ‘ex-sniffers’ during consultations.)


Info taken from re-solv more info and support can be found on their site.

Space makes some excellent points, please do reconsider and SWIM safely.

Re: Is it possible to get a high off of hairspray?

Good god, why are people still huffing BRAIN DAMAGING substances?! Is retardation trendy now? I hear all the kids like pretending to be human vegetables...

With legal, easily obtainable gaseous substances like Nitrous Oxide and poppers around, there is NO fucking reason to huff shit. Fuck, go huff some pure oxygen or carbogen; stop killing yoself!

Or OP likes to troll harm reduction people, haha.

Re: Is it possible to get a high off of hairspray?

This is a harm reduction site, therefore harmful methods of getting a high such as inhalants should not be discussed. The 'euphoric' effects can be inseperable from permanent brain damage. If SWIY is that desperate for a high, he should seek medical or psychological help because he most definitely needs it.

Re: Is it possible to get a high off of hairspray?

It's possible to get high off fumes of just about anything. I read somewhere about someone who got high off of chlorine tablet fumes, which seems incredibly stupid.

If one insists on getting high off of huffing something, they should consider buying some canned oxygen. It is legal for human consumption, it gets one high, and it is perfectly safe.
