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

Yes, it is just as gross as it sounds. This ancient practice of orally consuming one’s urine was used to help heal the body, whether of diseases or to ward off wrinkles. What?! Some locas today even massage 4-day-old urine on their skin and scalp to help condition hair and deeply hydrate their bodies. What the heck is wrong with people?

As if women weren’t already completely obsessed with their vaginas, now there’s a plastic surgery out there that will leave yours looking just like Barbie’s. What does that mean exactly? The entire labia minora (the lips of a woman’s vulva) are removed so that the outside of your vag pretty much looks as smooth as a Barbie’s dolls. Now, why would someone think that’s a good idea?

Because apparently getting facials for your face just isn’t enough. Similar to a traditional facial, butt facials cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes. They also take it one step further by de-blemishing and massaging your ass to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

In Israel spa gurus like to use non-venomous snakes to help massage their client’s backs. The snake kneading and trembling apparently helps relax  muscles and support blood circulation. Right … sounds more like torture to me.
