Drinking Hair Gel
« on: 16/08/2006 09:45:27 »
My friend actually drinks Hair Gel!! She hold it like 5 cm from her mouth and then squeezes the sachet for around 1 second and she drinks it! I saw her do it. At first she gets stomach upset and then she does not experience any more problems!

How is this possible [?]

Don't make me angry, I have advanced "Green Technology".

Hi Artistic (how are you today ?)




Does she have a hairy tummy ?

Or perhaps she has a hirsute anus and prefers to apply the hair gel in this way !

How is what possible ?...the fact she gets a tummy ache when consuming a hair product ?...hmmm !!...let me see !!!

Well...I am not an expert but the last time I looked Hair Gel was not being served as an aperitif or indeed as an after dinner drink in any restaurant that I know....this leads me to the extraordinary conclusion that hair gel is generally not recognised as a drink and is in fact best served on the hair !

I expect that hair gel is not fatal to the human body when ingested in small quantities but also does no good whatsoever too...hence the temporary tummy upset.

I am really interested as to why she consumes it Artistic....was it just to gross you out ?..or is it her favourite tipple ?...can she recommend any other cosmetic for consumption ?



For the record....this site does not condone the consumption of hair gel or any other cosmetic type product..

Men are the same as women, just inside out !

Some hair care products contain alcohol.

Mouthwash has a high alcohol concentration:-

" Active ingredients in commercial brands of mouthwash can include...water, sweeteners such as sorbitol and sodium saccharine, and a significant amount of alcohol (around 20%). Because of the alcohol content, it is possible to fail a breathalyzer test after rinsing one's mouth ".

Hair gel usually consists of:

  • water, providing most of its mass

  • a humectant and plasticizer, usually a sugar alcohol, eg. sorbitol

  • water-soluble polymer that binds to the hair, usually a cationic polyelectrolyte like polyvinylpyrrolidone. Other commonly-used polymers include polyvinyl alcohol and hydroxypropyl cellulose.

She drinks Gatsby and finds it tasty. She drinks it and does not get any of those above.

Perhaps you should be asking why she does this at all and not why it doesn't cause her problems.

I had a friend who used to eat persil tablets and other clothes- washing products. She would also lick salt out of the palm of her hand.
