Do anti-aging hair care products really work? Episode 130

Hair and skin have some things in common but there’s one big difference: skin is alive and responds to so called “anti-aging” ingredients while hair is DEAD. Check out this encore episode where we give you the straight scoop on hair care products that claim to make your hair younger.The_Bocksten_Bog_Man_1

    Hi from Sydney! I love this podcast – it’s my best new podcast discovery (well, apart from west wing weekly). I had to laugh when you were puzzling over the teenage selfie + head lice phenomenon. Have you never noticed kids squeezing together to get into a group selfie shot together? Such as: https://mobile.twitter.com/theellenshow/status/440322224407314432?lang=en

    In my day (lol) there was no reason for us to routinely bump our heads together!!!

    Maybe you’ve done a show on this (just working my way through the back catalog), but I would love if you could talk about exactly how a modern woman (full time worker) can do a full face of skincare & makeup and keep up with reapplying sunscreen during the day??? Do we just ditch foundation altogether?

      Thank you for mentioning that, Hanna! I guess men and boys don’t participate in selfie culture as much as women and girls. My first thought was “duh, you put your heads together to fit in the camera frame.”

        Yeah, I guess Perry and I were scratching our heads over this one. (Get it?)

    Hey! You guys are always awesome! I’m not a scientist but am an appreciative skeptic. When I got acupuncture as part of my workers comp treatment for herniated discs and carpal tunnel pain, I thought, what a waste of time. The acupuncture totally was nuts and pointless – BUT – the practitioner also did cupping, which I think Americans probably think is about flushing toxins and wackadoodle-y woo as Perry mentioned in the show. However, it was amazingly effective at helping me stop slouching and sit up straight. It is pretty great and helped me a lot and ignore the ridiculous claims. It is fabulous for helping chronic computer-slouchers 🙂

      Hey Joan. Thanks for the interesting comments on cupping. I too thought it was all “wackadoodle-woo.”
