Blotox injections

More women are opting for Botox injections in their scalps to make their hairstyles last longer, according to a report in Us Weekly.

Active women find that getting Botox injections -- called Blotox -- in their scalps decreases sweating and maintains their blowouts and silk press hairstyles longer.

“I have been doing Blotox for about eight years," dermatologist Dr. Michelle Henry tells Us Weekly. “I had a number of patients that were resistant to working out because they didn't want to ruin their hairstyle or blowout.

She added: "It makes a huge difference for the working woman who wants to be fit but still look great. For patients with curly or kinky hair, their hair will remain straight longer."

Dermatologist Dr. Cindy Bae has also seen an increase in clients asking for scalp injections.

“They won’t sweat as much so their blowout will last longer and their hair won’t feel or look as greasy,” Dr. Bae tells Us Weekly. “It’s interesting to see how much Blotox has taken off.”

Botox is only FDA approved for facial wrinkles, but dermatologists have found off-label uses for Botox in other parts of the body.

For instance, men and women get injections in their armpits to treat excessive sweating. And men get Scrotox injections to make their nether regions less wrinkly.

    "Did you know that millenials under the age of 34 will take over 25,000 #selfies in their lifetime? Many of our patients show us their selfies to effectively communicate to us what bothers them..... "

    Wow. You'd be a dummy to go to these two. That statement alone seems to indicate that they will play on your every insecurity until they have you looking like Jocelyn Wildenstein.

    Black women it's not for u, they just trying to keep them lice from hatching eggs in their scalps

  • Noirluv45

    Do people think about what they are putting into their bodies? It's insane to me that people are willing to inject Botox into their system just so they can keep a damn hairstyle longer. SMH.

  • Yardgirl

    This is some crazy shyte!! It’s bad enough the toxins in relaxer goes into the bloodstream, now they want to introduce botulism?????? I sweat a lot so on the rare times that I do a silk press (last time 5 yrs ago) the stylist struggles with my sweaty scalp. However I just go with it as it’s just a temporary style. I bought one of those heated brushes and it does a great job straightening my hair. People are nuts!!!

  • 100milesperhour

    2 quacks. Sweating, menstruating, urinating...all ways the body rids itself of toxins. Pigs don't sweat either. One of the filthiest animals on earth.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    There are parts of my body, I leave to God's on accord: eyes, vagina, anything near my brain

  • Ariel

  • Allihave2say

    Washing and rinsing your hair with rice water will push gray hair back to80 years. The story of the Rapunzels or the women of Yao tells us this. These women begin using rice water from birth. They cut their hair at age 18 years old to cut look for a husband. Their grandmothers keep the cut hair until they're married.

    After marriage the women get the but hair back and weave it in to their growing hair (the origin of weave). They continue weekly using fermented rice water. Their hair doesn't turn gray until age 80 years old.

  • Kayke

    Y'all serious? SMH. Because most of us don't mess with our faces, they're trying to get Botox in you via your insecurity.

  • Kayke

    Pigs do sweat

  • Ebony Starr

    Because black women aren't coming in droves to get there face done they figure that they can appeal to their hair "issues "! What about humidity. We have begun to embrace our natural hair. No thank you!

  • Karen Brady

    There you go! They said we gotta find a way around that damn melanin to get to their azzes. Half of us (maybe more) are embracing natural plus none of us are falling for this. *LOUD BUZZER SOUND* - TRY AGAIN.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Botox is used on the scalp to help with migraine headaches. It's also used for paralysis as well. Not sure about this one, will need to research it more.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What?! Whose IG?

  • Stacey J

    Okay I thought me sleeping on my face so I didn't mess up the sides of my hair was a bit much....but this right here takes the cake!

  • Nonya Bizness

    My Dr offered me BoBo for my Migraines,and I looked at her like she was nuts. If I'm not getting in my face, why would I want the poison in my skull? Then Neurology kept repeating themselves, asking if I wanted it, and when I repeatedly said "No", they pretty much acted like they were done with me. My mom heard of a woman who had Botox for migraines and it made them worse. I read about a husband and wife who went in together for Lasik Eye Surgery. He came out fine, she came out blind. I still wear contacts and glasses because of that story. I don't need 100 examples of why I shouldn't do something. 1 is enough.

  • CaramelDrop

    Both dermatologist

  • dontgetblocked

    As first I was shocked by this. But if you sweat a lot...this would be a good idea.

  • hottlanta

    Anytime you go to a doctor's office and they are dressed like they are ready to go to a party, RUNNNN!!!!!!

  • SummerBaby

    This is so stupid! ?

  • Keepin’IT100

    What will be the next trend?!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    It’s not medically approved to be used for that though...

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    All is vanity...

    Trading in one side effect for another. Would you prefer messy hair in the morning or an inflamed neuro condition which can paralysis and/or cause brain damage?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    You're so right!!! I love seeing so many women going's beautiful healthy hair, and it's fine for those who don't like myself, but I still love it, the cultural shift!

  • ?Royalty?

    ?You just took me way back. ??

  • Anunnaki

    The body was made to release, why stop it from doing what it naturally do....wytfolks gonna be the death of my people. ...we are not like them, when will we learn....just dumb

  • Solstice

  • PlayerP

    This can't be life...

  • T3

    Wow!!! What next?!?!? I am too scared od needles for this. I'll continue to fight my battles with my hair and working out.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Two things real men don’t give a d@mn about on women:
    1. Hair
    2. Stretch marks

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    True, but the doctor specifically said: " For patients with curly or kinky hair, their hair will remain straight longer."

    That is not a reference to Wytfolks. ijs

  • ebonics

    I am not trying to morph into a pig.. humans sweat for a reason. People are so dumb and vain. They gonna die a horrible death getting those injections.. smh.

  • Toni ToniToni

    Sounds like its too late for me then . I'm 40 and my greys are coming thru on the sides. Sigh

  • Toni ToniToni

    I ran into my convenience store owner this weekend and he was telling me that he uses Henna because it lasts longer and it is safer than the stuff in stores... They are from India. Good info.

  • Dowoop

    Scrotox....LMAO. Wouldnt it be cheaper to get your hair blown out again than to get an injection in your head?

  • Dowoop

    No but we trying so hard to be like those yt folks with straight hair.

  • Dowoop

    I had sweaty palms and feet even in winter. Doctor told me get Botox injection in my hands and feet. Last time i went there.

  • Dowoop

    I cant even do contacts...The thought of something touching my eyes freaks me out.

  • Guest

    What tf did I just read? smh.

  • Allihave2say

    They will be shiny and turn slightly golden. You can save the rest!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    So we're just going to FORCE this one on White people. It wasn't referencing people with straight hair...

    nvm, this whole "let me find someone to blame for my own stupidity or choices" is ridiculous!


  • Dowoop

    ACTUALLY it says that the Botox helps people with kinky hair keep their blow out longer. Who blows their hair out into curls?

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    So a black woman blowing her hair out is only credited to white people?


    once again, respect but I disagree

  • Dowoop

    Well we will have to agree to disagree.
    On another note - I appreciate that we can disagree without it getting nasty. Some folks on here act like they were raised in the wild.

  • IndaHOUSE

    let me fix this...title should be "reason women will look like squidward in future"...smh
