Beauty & Style went around the world finding the most outrageous beauty treatments that this Sistah wouldn't be caught DEAD trying but wanted to share and see if I was alone. They are STRANGE and kinda funny but...do they actually work? Not sure but not gonna find out either. Here we go...
Bird poop facials
Smearing your visage with nightingale excrement sounds about as fun as, well, getting pooped on by a flock of seagulls.
The aptly named uguisu no fun (Beauty editor's note: "No fun" -- How fitting... ), a Japanese powder made from songbird feces, was used by 18th century geishas and kabuki actors to wipe the heavy white makeup off their faces.
Ant Body Wash
JapanA refreshing and energy-giving wash -- or is it?
Ants contain high levels of formic acid, which is energy-giving. In fact you'll find that in some cultures, ants are part of a daily diet.
The Natural Expired Fruits Acids help remove dead skin and oil residues, and according to the website, this body wash will awaken the senses and provide an overall feeling of balance. It's also perfect for people with oily skin or sluggish metabolisms. See those ants marching through your kitchen? They're not the enemy after all.
Bull sperm conditioner
Some things you just can't make up. Case in point -- a conditioning treatment made out of bovine sperm.
Offered by Hari's, an upscale salon in London, the Aberdeen Organic Bull Semen Treatment combines the semen of Aberdeen Angus bulls with Katera root to create a protein-rich hair mask that drenches follicles in gobs of moisture.
The result? Shiny, full-bodied locks that have its devotees heralding it as "Viagra for hair." $85 will buy a treatment.
I don't know, I think you could visit any local farm and, by exercising some elbow muscles, get the same result for free. No? Too much?
