My hair has been on my mind lately. It seems that if I can’t get Botox/Radiesse injections and often as I need my hair is really my best defense against wrinkles. I know it probably doesn’t make sense but I’m stuck on this idea that that if I have great hair, it will diffuse what’s going on on my face. The boys are getting used to seeing me walking around the house with velcro rollers and spraying my hair with Elenet before I go out for teachers conference. And today this press release arrived in my in box.
Subject: The Vitamin B5 Blowout
Cut drying time by 50% while power boosting youth back into hair with Peter Coppola Keratin Concept’s Vitamin B5 Blowout
To rewind the strands of time and achieve a younger looking, blow dry each and every style time, the next big blowout trend has arrived: The Vitamin B5 Blowout. With products containing the ingredient of Pro Vitamin B5, this powerful beauty vitamin is celebrated for its moisturizing, detangling and thickening features, while its ability to reflect light will make tresses shinier and glossier.
Now mind you a I’m not easily swayed. I swear. Yesterday I turned down and invitation to have a “Mouth Facial” because my bogus beauty radar is in working order. I googled vitamin B5 because I didn’t really know if it’s an actual vitamin. According to WedMD (the online medical school where I’ve earned my self-diagnosing doctorate) it is a real vitamin and is used to treat a stunning array of health issues such as: acne, alcoholism, allergies, baldness, asthma, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, burning feetsyndrome (WHEN DO YOU GET THAT?!), yeast infections, heart failure, carpal tunnel syndrome, respiratory disorders, celiac disease, colitis, conjunctivitis, convulsions, and cystitis. It is also taken by mouth for dandruff, depression, diabetic nerve pain, enhancing immune function, improving athletic performance, tongue infections, gray hair (THIS IS A GOOD SIGN), headache, hyperactivity, low blood sugar, trouble sleeping (insomnia), irritability, low blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, muscular cramps in the legs associated with pregnancy or alcoholism, neuralgia, and obesity…and believe it or not much much more.
So if the vitamin can do all that, it’s worth a spritz or two and who knows what else it can help with.
