Kate, Dutchess of Cambridge, has been credited with many a fashion and beauty trend. (Did anyone see how fast her ASOS maternity dress sold out?) We have to say though, this is one Kate-inspired beauty trend that’s perhaps a little, well, weird.
Cosmetic surgeons have reported an increase in the number of women approaching them requesting Botox injections – just not for their face.
Rather, clients are seeking out the benefits of Botox in the quest for Dutchess-worthy frizz free hair. Yep, Botox for your hair. (Post continues after gallery.)
Reportedly, Botox injections directly into the scalp are said to prolong blow dries, de-frizz the fuzz and keep hair fresher for longer.
The idea is that Botox prevents sweating – which is actually one of the original uses for the drug. It works by inhibiting the sweat glands and therefore reduces the amount of perspiration a person experiences.
It’s been used to treat conditions like hyperhidrosis (or excessive sweating) for years, and now it’s doing the same for the sweat glands on your head.
