Placenta Hair Care (I Kid You NOT!)

29 August 2012

Okay, okay - how far would you go in the quest for perfect hair?  This is, of course, assuming you don't already have wash-and-go hair, and if you do...I don't think I like you any more!

I do NOT have wash and go hair; it's naturally curly, goes frizzy in damp or humid weather and regularly suffers abuse by hairdryer and straightener.

I've been growing my hair for the last 18 months or so and then, somehow,  really managed to 'kill it' a couple of weeks ago.  So much so, in fact, that I made an emergency appointment with my hairdresser and had him cut off the three inches, or so, that I had irreparably damaged!

The latest beauty craze, originating from the States (of course), are facials and face creams that contain extract of placenta - nope, I'm not kidding! - and now this new 'miracle ingredient' is all over the place in various hair treatments and shampoos!

It promises to restore and repair abused hair to the sort of glory that only godesses could ever dream of - the question is: even if it did deliver on its perfect hair promise, could you get over washing your hair with extract of placenta?  And can you imagine the look on people's faces when you casually replied, "oh, it's placenta shampoo!" having asked you what your hair care secret was!

Well, I could AND I've ordered a bottle of Hask Placenta Leave-In Conditioning Treatment, for £3.49 (plus £2 postage), to really put my hair where my mouth is (although I won't be putting placenta anywhere near my mouth, EVER; but that's a whole other 'what do you think?' post!) - I'll review it and let you know how I get on!

I can only find La Bella Placenta Shampoo on Amazon - and it ships from the States which, at £13.74, makes it rather expensive.

SO, would you - could you (I sound like Dr Suess a'la Green Eggs and Ham!) wash your hair with extract of placenta?!

"I would not wash it with placenta, I will not part it in the centre!  I could not, would not even dare, to put placenta in my hair!"

    Lol Sarah. Placenta is fairly common in beauty products. It always amuses me that people are grossed out by their own placenta, but will put other people's on their skin :D Some NHS trusts sell/ used to sell them to cosmetic companies - it was 'big' news in 2008! Would love to know how you get on with it!

What do you think?
