BotoxRemember way back when Botox first started being talked about? It seems like ages ago ... and now Botox is EVERYWHERE. People are still using it in their faces to deal with wrinkles and supposedly look younger, but it's also being used for other purposes like maintaining a blowout. Yup, that's right, apparently there are women Botoxing their scalps so they won't sweat and mess up their hair because--oh my Dios--that would be the end of the world … NOT!

Why would anyone want to do such a thing? Well, Botox has been used by some to treat excessive sweating from armpits or feet, and it does work for that, so I guess someone with a really great blowout had the bright idea to get someone to inject her head full of Botox so that her head wouldn't sweat and make the blowout go bye-bye. And of course there's always someone willing to get paid to inject Botox any old place so a new use for Botox came about. INSANITY!

To begin with, you must have some kind of money if being able to Botox your entire head is no big thing. Also, according to dermatologist Dr. Francesca Fusco, "Scalp injections should hurt more than facial Botox injections because the scalp is thicker." OUCH!

I'm sorry, but that's just too far to go for vanity. It's absurd in my opinion. So what if you do mess up your blow out when you work out? Deal with it! You're supposed to sweat when you work out, it's normal and natural.

Amigas, unfortunately women will do ridiculous things in the name of beauty. Trust me, this Botoxing your head thing is just the tip of the iceberg. Click through the gallery to see nine more insane beauty treatments. –Additional reporting Johanna Ferreira
