So Botox for your hair is now a thing…
So, we’ve probably all heard of women getting Botox to zap wrinkles, mend migraines and stop excessive sweating, but now, they’re using it to prolong the life of their blow-dries, too.
According to Yahoo Beauty, women are getting Botox injected into their scalps so they can exercise without ending up with sweaty, frizzy strands.
Dermatologist Patricia Wexler says the procedure works to “inhibit the eccrine glands”, meaning the patient is likely to experience less frizz and may find they don’t have to wash their hair as often.
“It has few side effects if given in a safe dilution and dose,” she explains. “It should be discriminately placed along the hairline and frontal area where frizz is most prominent.”
This may seem like the most bizarre use of Botox, but just when we thought we’d heard it all, we came across this fun fact: women in the UK are reportedly injecting it into their calves to make their boots fit better. Say whaaat?!
Would you get Botox to extend the life of your blow-dry?
