Cold Hands Embalming Tip of the Week: Use Lanol Care to help straighten coarse, curly or ethnic hair of the dead

Lanol Care is an aerosol spray lubricant that was formulated especially for use on the skin of the 💀dead.

Today’s tip is a Desairology tip and will focus the product use on the decedent’s hair. This tip works especially well for coarse, curly or ethnic hair types that may require the use of a flat iron or hot comb.

Pro tip:

Lubricate the scalp and hair with Lanol Care by spraying 5-6 inches away. Apply heat but use care to keep the iron moving at all times to prevent burning the hair. This product will leave an oily residue so keep that in mind when spraying onto the hair.

Today’s tip was collected from our guest tipster ⚰️🖤🎩 Madeline Lyles LFD and LE.

Hope you like this week’s Embalming Tip! Until next week happy embalming! 🥼🧤🖤💀⚰️
