The Genius Trick You Need If You Decorate Your Home With Pampas Grass

Do you love the aesthetic of pampas grass but dislike the excessive shedding? You're not alone. While these dried plants make stunning indoor decor, they are notorious for leaving behind a trail of fluff. Luckily, there's a smart solution to this problem — hairspray. By applying the holding spray to each stem, you can finally stop the shedding of pampas grass without compromising its captivating appearance.

For years, these fluffy plumes have been a favored choice for decoration. They quickly gained notoriety in the 70s thanks to a myth associating them with the swinger lifestyle. Nowadays, whether this urban legend holds any truth or not, it doesn't dismay the growing popularity of pampas grass. It's easy to see why there is such demand for these plants. They are long-lasting, low-maintenance, and add a stunning touch to any home. However, the shedding problem is a significant drawback. As soon as you unravel the plumes, feathery fragments are dispersed... everywhere. But with a quick spray of hairspray, you can finally end the frustrating spread of fluff.

Tame shedding with hairspray

Upon receiving your pampas grass, gently separate the stems and give them a light shake to remove any excess fluff. If the plumes appear compressed, you can place them in the sunlight for a few hours to encourage natural opening before proceeding with the hairspray application. Once ready, grab your preferred hairspray and give each stem a spritz. This will effectively minimize shedding without compromising the beauty of the pampas grass. If shedding persists, you can reapply the styling mist every six months.

In addition to using hairspray, it is best to arrange your pampas grass in a decorative vase that is out of the reach of children and pets. Also, avoid positioning the dried plant in areas with strong drafts, such as near vents or open windows. Even with the holding mist, choosing a location that prevents excessive movement is advisable; that way, you can keep the shedding to a minimum and maintain the desired aesthetic of the pampas grass.
