Grease: Live might have looked like a polished and glamorous affair to the untrained eye, but little did viewers know that the cast were running around with a load of lube slopped into their hair.
If you've ever idly wondered just what it takes to retain a perfect quiff while making a song and dance for a couple of hours, the answer apparently comes in the form of a slippery sex aid. But, don't take my word for it, check out the insider secret from Ana Gasteyer who played Principal McGee:

"This definitely works, and it's totally safe. It adds a lot of shine, and it will have the smallest amount of hold. It doesn't get crunchy."
And if you have a sudden urge to dump a load of KY Jelly onto your dome right now (each to their own...), Gasteyer also helpfully gave us a sneak peek of the aftermath of her lubed up locks. She captioned the Instagram pic below:
Suddenly the word 'Grease' has entirely new connotations and I'm not sure I like them!
