WTF Alert: Shailene Woodley’s “Beauty Secrets”

To say Shailene Woodleys alternative lifestyle has gone extreme is an understatement, darlings. The Divergent star recently opened up on Into The Gloss about the things she does to keep her skin, hair and body healthy… and it’s quite a list!

Let’s start off with her locks. She swears that the less she puts in her hair, the better it is. But that means she not only skips products, but washes too! “I only shampoo it like once a month,” she revealed, “the oilier, the better.” I know my hairstylist Pierre is dying a little inside right now reading this.

Next up, Shai insists that the healthiest thing you can put in your body is clay: “I first heard about the benefits of eating clay from a taxi driver. He was African and was saying that, where he’s from, the women eat clay when they’re pregnant…. So, I’ve discovered that clay is great for you because your body doesn’t absorb it, and it apparently provides a negative charge, so it bonds to negative isotopes. And, this is crazy: it also helps clean heavy metals out of your body.” Yes. I think crazy is the word that best describes it….

And last but not least, she confesses to sunbathing her vagina. “I was reading an article written by an herbalist I studied about yeast infections and other genital issues,” the actress revealed. “She said there’s nothing better than vitamin D. If you’re feeling depleted, go in the sun for an hour and see how much energy you get. Or, if you live in a place that has heavy winters, when the sun finally comes out, spread your legs and get some sunshine.”

Wow. What do you think about Shai’s “beauty secrets”? Totally natural…or totally nuts?

    “Alternative medicine has either not been proved to work, or has been proved not to work. Do you know what they call alternative medicine that has been proved to work? Medicine.” -Tim Minchin

  4. Anne Said:

    i ALMOST want to try these and also feel like eating clay is probably not a good idea… hmmm maybe if i am feeling wild one day

  5. jasmine Said:

    The women in Africa eat clay when they are pregnant because they are anemic. Iron deficiency anemia is common during pregnancy and that results in Pica which is a disorder where people (regardless of whether or not they are pregnant) eat inorganic substances like Clay or paint chips (common presentation in the US). *shakes head*

  6. Stephanie Said:

    I think they are great we all have our ow n things that others might find crazy :)

  7. Afshaa Said:

    I love Shai. <3 And since she is so beautiful, obviously the tips are not nuts, it has to be good for your health and beauty. But I live in a tropical country, and if I plan to shampoo my hair once a month, then it will not really work for me. And eating clay, does not really sound like a good idea. BUT since, she is one of the most beautiful and amazing woman alive, these plans might work for her.

  8. Alice Said:

    Getting enough vitamin D and even sunbathing her vagina (in a private place, I hope) sounds OK too me, but I draw the line at oily hair. Washing your hair only once a month sounds pretty gross…..even unhealthy. Ditto for eating clay. YUCK!
