Hello!

Just when you thought you’d seen every possible baby-related product on the planet comes Girlie Glue - an adhesive designed to stick bows and hair accessories to a baby’s head.

Some babies are born with a full head of thick hair, others are bald for the first few months of their lives. And if you’re a mum who’s been itching to put accessories in your bub’s hair, it can be frustrating! So one mum decided to come up with a solution – and it has opinions divided!

Katie Hydrick came up with the idea of Girlie Glue after she ‘got tired of slippery uncomfortable headbands and bows’. She says her babies didn’t have enough hair for clips but still wanted to use cute accessories. So she went to her kitchen and whipped up a batch of what would become Girlie Glue, so she could stick bows to her babies’ heads.

Girlie Glue is made using natural ingredients including Agave nectar, and claims to be safe for skin and hair. Just pop a dab on a hair accessory, put it in place, and when you want to take it off, it washes away with water.

While Girlie Glue has been around for some time (and caused a stir when it was first launched), it was recently thrust back into the spotlight after a mum shared a video of how she uses it on her daughters, and it went viral.

“After trying headband bows on my babies I realised quickly that they either pull them off or I have to constantly adjust them. That’s when I started using Girlie Glue!” Amy Lynette shared.

The negative comments came flooding in, with other parents furious that the product exists.

“How ridiculous. Your babies don’t need sh*t glued to their head to signal what genitals they have,” one person commented.

Another said: “Is this a f**king joke? We are sticking things to our babies heads now to affirm their gender? As if those bow headbands aren’t stupid enough, we’ve graduated to gluing things? This is some dumb bs. I know it’s not harmful ingredients but thats not the point.”

“Imagine not being able to wait for your kid to have hair long enough to style so you just start gluing shit to them,” commented another person.

Amy addressed the comments, saying: “I’m not sure why this is making people so upset. It is corn syrup, agave nectar, and sugar. So similar to what our moms used in the 80s and 90s. If you didn’t grow up with that, you might think it’s odd but let’s not bash a great product that a lot of people love.”

The product is also marketed at anyone wanting to attach accessories to their children’s hair for crazy hair day … and even their pets!

  • Not something I would do. The little ribbons look like bandaids to me.

  • Definitely not something I’d use but as long as there’s no harmful chemicals in it, I’d probably use it at Easter or Halloween to dress up for the day

  • I wouldn’t use it I just love their heads without bows and ribbons etc so much time for that when they are older

  • I lived in the US over 20 years ago and this was a normal thing except honestly, they used honey like stuff. It’s nothing new. As a mum of a girl who had NO hair to clip bows or ribbons on, I loved the idea of it. YEs, you don’t need to indicate to anyone what gender your baby is but for me, I got TIRED of everyone asking “is it a boy or a girl” – they do it anyway. Plus, bows and ribbons are cute IMO.

  • Don’t think I’m a fan. Can’t they just wait a few months to use proper hair accessories without glue? ????‍♀️

  • I worry about it being able to be pulled off by bub these look small enough to be choking hazards if bub can pull them out.

    Reply

  • Each to their own. But I don’t see the point of this, just wait it out till headbands or bows can actually stay on their head

    Reply

  • Ok for dress up days but unnecessary for babies.

    Reply

  • I don’t have a problem with this product as long as it is not toxic. I would worry though about babies pulling their small bows and trinkets off and swallowing them.

  • I’m not sure if we really need this.

    Reply

  • Mmmm. I’m not a fan of this, but then I don’t like headbands on babies either.

    Reply

  • Ummm not necessary really.

  • Just wondering if indeed all the mums that commented with no …actually had babies with a lot of hair ?

    Reply

  • Each to their own ideas and problem-solving issues. Not for me, but thats my thoughts.

  • I must say I’m not in love with this concept…

  • Why are parents, most likely mothers, so insecure that their baby, already dressed head to toe in pink need to have another sign to the world they have a baby daughter? If u get offended by the mere fact people mistake your bald baby as a boy, then that insecurity is on u.. not the baby. Most babies are beautiful without a lot of lame accessories bought for them

  • Ridiculous, not needed

  • It’s great for those families that enjoy terrorising their. infants with putting things in or on their hair. Personally I wouldn’t use it on a baby but yes for a school kid who has a crazy hair day and wants to stick googley eyes or other things on their hair. My daughter never had hair till she was about 1 and even then I never put clips or bows in her hair.

  • Not needed but kinda cute. Hey if it makes you happy then go for it. I was lucky that all my 3 girls had a great crops of hair

    Reply

  • I wonder who you’re trying to please or impress when sticking these things on your baby’s head ?
