Bizarre beauty treatments that people actually swear by

For centuries, women have been committing acts of medieval torture on themselves just to look, seem, smell or even just feel more beautiful. Here are the 10 biggest OMG WTF beauty rituals you might not know about... (and if you have tried one of them, tell us all about it because we haven't found anyone brave enough to try them yet!)

3. Bull sperm conditioner


Some things you just can't make up. Case in point -- a conditioning treatment made out of bovine sperm.

Offered by Hari's, an upscale salon in London, the Aberdeen Organic Bull Semen Treatment combines the semen of Aberdeen Angus bulls with Katera root to create a protein-rich hair mask that drenches follicles in gobs of moisture.

The result? Shiny, full-bodied locks that have its devotees heralding it as "Viagra for hair." $85 will buy a treatment.

I don't know, I think you could visit any local farm and, by exercising some elbow muscles, get the same result for free. No? Too much?
