Remember where you heard about this FIRST.

There was a huge advert in today's METRO (which they wouldn't let me copy) - so here's a German version.

They call it 'Doping for Your Hair' and it's available at BOOTS.

Allegedly ... 'Alpecin has been proven to successfully eliminate the negative impact of testosterone on the scalp.'


Don't say I never tell you anything - eh?
NB (re previous post) - The Audenshaw boys were aquitted -
Police and prosecutors have been strongly criticised for pursuing the case

"I never tell you anything - eh?"

Now I've said it, what happens?

Scarily quick there!
I know you never tell me anything. So it's a good job I know everything already.
Ha ha ha!!!

Should I apply instant coffee directly to the scalp as a cheap way of eliminating the impact of testosterone on the scalp?

Will they be bringing out body wash as well???
Shame not to cover all the angles so to speak...

I'm reminded of the man who wanted a Tony Curtis haircut (Yes,I'm old.)

That Yul is shameless! First, there was this, now he's hawking hair products!

What effect does it have when used as an enema?

I assume it's not meant to be taken orally...?

MJ - it is no use at all, you might as well stick it up your arse.

I have no desire to eliminate the impact of testosterone on any part of my body. Fortunately I don't drink coffee.

'testosterone on the scalp '? woW.........Sometimes, Things Go Way Over My Head.......

so, what happens to all the spare testosterone that doesn't get to the scalp then?

Blogger KAZ said...

If I were you I'd just pour a can of Red Bull over my head.

Just remind me not to use it on my face!

idle thoughts.
I bet I'm older.
I know that story too

Poor Yul - thank goodness I never started smoking.
Did you?

I confined my research to the head. Other areas are better left unhairy.

Well you wouldn't drink 'Head and Shoulders' would you?

I love it when you talk dirty.

You are such a rampant beast.

Well I know you like to keep its effects below the belt.

We'll send it to Dave.....not that he needs it of course.

I'm sorry but caffeine is a drug to be taken orally, in a large mug, with a sprinkling of brown sugar and fake milk. Not to be shampooed with or shoved up your jacksie. That's just wrong.

Coffee is a gift from the Gods. It's allows my daily transformation from a snarling mass of slow-wittedness to a smiling, thinking blogger that is me. :-)

Do you think this magic substance would neutralise Jeremy Clarkson and produce water?

Where do I get it?!!!

Well - I agree.
But if you were a chap on the way to egg city I think you may feel differently.

It would probably turn him into Worsel Gummidge.

Are you on holiday?
I can tell by your cheery turn of phrase.

Given that I couldn't guarentee Patrick Stewart's safety should he ever get in my groping distance...

"thank goodness I never started smoking. Did you?"

Oh, no! Never wanted to. Why, what did you hear?

I prefer cocaine shampoo.

This is probably why I wander around looking like Joe Brown. Over confident follicles dontchaknow.

Not a good look.

I find that testosterone has no negative impact on my scalp. But it does stop me from sleeping on a Sunday morning.

Blogger Donn w/2 Ns said...

But what about the hair in "funny" places?
You know!?

Yul was always a sullen bare chested KING or PHAROAH and all of his "lines" were exclamatorial imperitives.
Nice work if you can get it.

What does it do to women? Can any dope use it?

But do baldies (I've checked and this is the politically correct term) wash their heads with shampoo?

Surely they just use soap or shower gel. This new product is surely only of any use to semi-baldies.

PS: Off topic, I've just borrowed a sat-nav and the default voices included a very charming Catalan woamn...unfortunately she was also speaking Catalan rather than with just a quaint accented English so I couldn't even find the way to Sainsbury's. Pah!

Patrick Stewart is a strange love object - but your passion will give hope to many chaps who visit here.

I never started but always wanted to - it just seems so glamorous.
My intuition told me you were probably a reformed smoker - so much for my intuition.

Oh it is a good look.
I remember that Joe Brown look - it isn't dissimilar to my own style.
Though perhaps the word 'style' is not appropriate in my case. Perhaps my hair sticks up because I drink so much coffee.

Lucky you - make the most of it!

'Exclamatorial imperitives'... that reminds me of someone.
Did you model yourself on Yul? Apart from the hair that is.

It depends on their testosterone levels.
Yours are zero as you are obviously all woman

Yes - I think a true Kojak type has left it too late.
Catalan Satnav - amazing.
Obviously it was bought in Lidl and they didn't want you to go to Sainsbury's.

Whilst I was lying awake worrying about the effects of Testosterione on my hair, I decided to browse through my bloggy friends latest posts. On clicking upon a seemingly innocent link, I found myself shocked and that someone would commit such an act to such a stunning man. I shall be talking to David about it personally. ( once they remove the restraining order)

Blogger KAZ said...

I must admit I thought of you when I posted the link - obviously David must have been using that shampoo for years.
I love David too.
Perhaps you'd prefer this link

As a slaphead I will be trying this out right away.. ha! no more chants from the kids of Tommy Tefel for me....

As for the 'Not Guilty' verdic I'm very pleased to hear that.... hopefully it will wake those to up... and maybe shock one or two more.

Thought so.

I see hair on that head - it looks nowt like a nose cone or a frying pan.

As we thought - it was all fantasy - and did you read that the coppers had a free (i.e. paid for by us) trip to Columbine to consult the US police? And the older lad was banged up in Strangeways for 6 months.
Hope they never read my diary.

Hi Kaz....
To be honest I have not read much about it... I had an idea it would turn out like this.. as for the police having a trip out there that sounds about right. I can imagine they thought it would be an high profile case and careers could be made by this.
As for him being on remand for six months he must have found that very tough... at his age I was a bad boy... I was used to stuff like that but I remember how tough it was being in remand the first time.. he would still have had to mix with 'all sorts' I hope that both lads can move forward and learn one of lifes lessons for this sorry mess.

9:17 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Thanks for this - good to have the opinion of one who knows - I had imagined it would be hard for a lad in Strangeways. He was obviously a pathetic fool who had never before been in trouble with the police.
Let's hope he turns out like you eh?
