Want to achieve an awesomely retro updo like Adele? Then it's time to ditch your shampoo. The Grammy-winning songstress tells Glamour that the secret to her bouffant 'do is only washing her hair with water. "I washed my hair with shampoo for the first time in two months," she said during the interview.
That might sound a tad grody, but compared to some other celebrity beauty tips it's nothing. Here's a guide to the Hollywood beauties with the weirdest grooming habits:
In addition to eating apples or strawberries after a meal in hopes that the acid in them will lighten surface stains, Catherine Zeta-Jones has replaced her conditioner with two products most of us try to keep out of our hair. "I do condition my hair with honey and beer," she says. "I smell like the bottom of a beer barrel for days afterwards but it's very good for the hair."
You might expect Nicole Polizzi's beauty regimen to go something like: "Apply self-tanner. Pouf hair. Repeat." But, But, Snooki's skin care tips are even odder. “Some exfoliates have rocks in them and it makes your skin really smooth, and cat litter is a good substitute,” she says. “I haven’t broke out at all yet!”
In the '90s, it was a constant reminder that drinking milk "does a body good," but Cindy Crawford took things a step further. The supermodel reportedly spritzed her face with dairy throughout the day to give her skin a dose of proteins and vitamins.
Jessica Simpson is a big fan of the overshare, but perhaps she should have kept this one to herself: She doesn't like brushing her teeth. She explains, "Because my teeth are so white and I don't like them to feel too slippery, but I do use Listerine and I do floss everyday. But, I don't brush them everyday. I'll use a shirt or something. I know it's gross but I always have fresh breath. It's really weird but I have great breath."
Demi Moore says she likes to stay on the "cutting edge of things that optimize your health and healing" — by using a technique popular with the Founding Fathers. "I was in Austria doing a cleanse and part of the treatment was leech therapy," she says. "These aren't just swamp leeches though — we are talking about highly trained medical leeches. These are not some low-level scavengers — we're talking high-level blood suckers." Supposedly letting the "high-level blood suckers" have at her helped "detoxify" her blood.

Lonely Hearts is really two stories set in post WWII America. The main story is about Ray Fernandez (Jared Leto) a small-time swindler who bilks war widows out of their insurance money and life savings by getting them to fall in love with him. He then marries them and kills them once he has control of their assets. His neat little scam is thrown off kilter when he discovers that one of his targets Martha Beck (Salma Hayek) is penniless. He tries to dump her but she figures out his scheme and they become lethal lovers and partners in crime. The other story is about the detective (John Travolta) who tracks them down. He is picking up the pieces of his own tragic life after his wife commits suicide. His son (Dan Byrd) is a distant and difficult teenager and his girlfriend (Laura Dern) is trying to help him get on with his life. Jared Leto (Requiem for a Dream) is excellent as the greasy playboy who seduces and kills lonely women. He plays the sleazy charm and indecisive weakness of Ray Fernandez perfectly. But the standout performance of the film is Salma Hayek. Although Martha Beck on her best day never looked anywhere near as good as Hayek does on her worst the actress makes the cold-blooded character her own doing whatever it takes to get her hands on the ill-gotten gains. The image of a bloody and frustrated Hayek in a frumpy housecoat sucking on a cigarette with a hacksaw in hand complaining about the tenaciousness of one of their victims is priceless. John Travolta is either miscast or misused as the tortured tough guy detective Elmer Robinson. This wasn't a cool character and Travolta is a cool star who seemed to be straight jacketed by a character who is almost completely reactionary. James Gandolfini and Laura Dern do their best in their supporting roles. Writer-director Todd Robinson turns in a serviceable job behind the camera but falls down on the script. Lonely Hearts' main problem seems to be his inability to wiggle away from the facts to create an engaging movie. Robinson is actually the grandson of the real-life detective who brought Fernandez and Beck to justice. Robinson never gets beyond the made-for-TV luridness of the basic story. Gandolfini gets stuck in the role of narrator which would have been much more engaging if Travolta's character would have been the one talking to the audience. Robinson never lets the audience inside the characters long enough to make the film a more emotional experience. This is a problem with true stories; the writers are often not able or willing to be creative with the lives and motivations of the characters who have done extraordinary and well-documented things.
