Can Drinking Testosterone Turn You Super Hairy? - VIDEO


If someone slipped testosterone into your drink, would you start sprouting massive amounts of body hair the way you might have when you went through puberty?

Not exactly, according to The Medicine Journal, a YouTube channel dedicated to demystifying the secrets of the human body. 

In short, it might not cause you to develop hair growth all over your body. It really depends on your genetics and how many of your remaining hair follicles are still capable of sprouting new stalks of fur.

Razor Industry: We're Suffering Because Men are Growing Beards


Beards are killing razor sales, Bloomberg reports:

P&G’s grooming business, which includes shaving cream, razor blades and deodorant, generated $2.12 billion in revenue during the quarter ended Dec. 31 and accounted for 9.5 percent of the company’s sales. Though the division’s sales rose 3 percent, excluding currency effects, John Faucher, an analyst at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in New York, said in a Jan. 13 note that sales of non-disposable razors and blades fell 7.8 percent in the 12 weeks through Dec. 21.

The reason: “Increased interest in facial hair,” he said.

So I guess there's one more way to protest P&G's sponsorship of Sochi.

Queen Orders Prince Harry to Shave His Beard: VIDEO


Prince Harry has been ordered by the Queen to (“sooner rather than later”) shave the bushy polar beard he grew while on his charity trek in Antarctica, the Express reports:

He returned to Britain just in time for the festive celebrations at Sandringham but although his brother William and sister-in-law Kate said they loved his “Windsor whiskers” his grandmother was apparently not amused.

Harry has said beards are a royal tradition and told a well-wisher watching his family walk to church on Christmas morning that he intended to keep his. “The rest of the family liked it and were taking the mickey, especially his cousin Zara who dubbed him ‘Prince Hairy’,” said a royal insider.

“But the Queen soon let her displeasure be known. She doesn’t mind royal men growing beards when they are away in the Armed Forces or out in the wilds like Harry was in the Antarctic, but she expects them to be clean-shaven when they get home.

The founder of Scruff, Johnny Skandros, was brought on to HuffPost Live to offer his theories as to why men are once again embracing their beards.
