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.
