In Which I Cannot Believe This Is Real

I'm not often stunned by something I see. Surprised that it exists, sure, but slack-jawed stunned? Very infrequently does that happen. What does it take to rock me back on my heels, you ask?


Placenta hair conditioner? PLACENTA. HAIR CONDITIONER.

People do a lot of freaky things with placenta, and honestly, what those people decide to do with the chunky carnage that is afterbirth is their own choice. Different strokes for different folks and all that. I also understand that there is a market of people with hair problems that want a more holistic remedy. But putting animal placenta in your hair? Hell, no. From what I was able to find briefly online, there are lot more uses for placenta than I care to know about. I just can't fathom putting it on your hair in attempt to bring more life back into it. 

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go try to find alternative uses for my toenail clippings and earwax.

Placenta? Oh and a bargain but sadly I am all stocked up on pig brain hair shampoo.

Earwax lip balm maybe?

Natalie said...

Where do you shop?

Jennifer said...

that. is. disgusting.

Ms Amanda said...

I'm sure it's just cow placenta, it's fine...

Chuck said...

Gee, all CAlifornia had to do was add a little "i" and they got a city named close they came to your ridicule they will never know!

Marty said...

Oh my god, I was stocking stuff at work (at TARGET) and *saw* that, and had that very same complete disbelief reaction. And then had to read the ingredients to see if it actually included "placenta" (turns out it's 'placenta enzymes').

Yikes. Not that it makes it any better, but my aunt had a student with that name. The worst part? The child's last name is Brown. No joke.

Poke The Rock: I'll pass.

Natalie: This was found at Big Lots. We don't go there often.

Jennifer: Agreed.

Ms Amanda: Just cow placenta?

Chuck: Right on.

Marty: Still plenty barf-worthy.

Cary: Poor kid.

Dude, how do you and JV manage to see so many weird items?

Now seriously, a placenta is considered to be the tree of life, so what's wrong with ingredients from trees in conditioner? (Hack, cough, gag, blech...)
