Egg yolk, vinegar, avocado, mayonnaise, olive oil, beer: just a few of the indignities your hair has endured in the name of optimal shine.
Next up: bull sperm.
It’s not a load of bullocks. A new, intense conditioning treatment at Hari’s uses organic pedigree Angus bull semen, fresh from Brooklet Farm in Cheshire. The substance’s pure protein, combined with katera, a protein-rich plant root, penetrates each shaft and deeply nourishes the hair.
After a shampoo and head massage, your locks are slathered in a thick masque and placed under a steamer. Twenty minutes later, after a rinse and blow-dry, it’s soft, shiny and unusually thick, as well as remarkably light and bouncy. The results should last for months.
Don’t worry: no animals are harmed in the process of procuring the necessary ingredients.
And, thankfully, the only head you have to give for it is your own.
