Botox for Hair's male model has gone into hiding.

Hairdressers across the UK have widely accepted the latest beauty treatment to come out of L'Orful, the US beauty product developers, called Botox For Hair.

"It's a fantastic solution to the problem of limp hair," said Vital Saloon, hairdresser to stars like Chico and Paul Daniels. "It brings hair to life! It adds a ba-doing to every strand of hair. Like the shocked look that people who have had Botox on their face have, there is a similar effect on hair."

Bringing hair to life suggests to the UK's Hair Products Safety Executive that this latest fad is not Botox.

"Botox is a toxin," said Sally Buffoon, who has requested permission to study this latest US hair beauty product. "If anything, it would make hair lifeless."

According to Buffoon, if Botox (or Botulism Toxin to give it it's more scary full name), were added to the scalp the result would be baldness.

"It's not recommended," said Buffoon. "However, L'Orful have refused us permission to study their latest product."

The Hair Product Safety Executive have long campaigned for more rigorous testing of hair products before they can be sold in the UK. They were formed after the disastrous spate of coppered bleaching products that produced an entire generation of ginger people.

"We don't want a return to the bad old days," said Buffoon. "Think back to the eighties and all that permed hair. The eighties were renowned for it. We hope to avoid future generations looking back at the tenties and calling it the 'bald era'."
