Placenta shampoo promises to give dull hair a re-birth, but would you use it?
As placenta-based beauty products take Hollywood by storm, a number of new affordable afterbirth cosmetics, have been born, but will real women ever use them?
You did read that right; animal placenta is the hottest anti-aging ingredient around at the moment and promises to rejuvenate cells and leave skin and hair like new.
Whilst Victoria Beckham is said to be a big fan of ‘sheep placenta’ facials for £320 a pop, us normal folk can now get involved too as placenta products hit the mainstream. After The Daily Mail reported the new beauty fad we found it too strange to be true, but surprisingly these products are fast becoming the new cosmetic must-have.
After a quick internet search you can buy HASK cow placenta hair care for as little as 99p to give ‘ravishingly beautiful’ locks, along with a number of supposedly ‘miracle’ anti-agers with sheep placenta extracts to give you an 'instantly youthful' appearance.
Now, it’s not uncommon for mothers to believe in the benefits of afterbirth, with some going as far as to eat or drink it – but would you really use it as part of your everyday beauty regime?
