Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


What's in a name?

While at the grocery store today, I was kind of drifting up and down the aisles, and when in the shampoo area., I spotted this product on the top shelf:

Ummm.  Wow.  Placenta shampoo.  I had to do a little bit of research on the computer when I got home, just in case there is some other definition of 'placenta' out there, but no...it means just what you would think it would mean. 

The only thing that makes this slightly less horrifying than it might otherwise be is that it is made with 'placenta enzymes' rather than the real thing.

Makes me feel less bad about the possible ingredients of Head and Shoulders.  


  1. I never thought placenta is also for the hair. Is this for real?

  2. I've done placenta treatments on my hair a time or two. It's actually a really great conditioner. Or else the rest of the stuff they put in with it is.
