Jessica Simpson Goes Goofy For Ear-Candling!
No, Jessica Simpson hasn’t (completely) lost her mind and isn’t sacrificing herself to the hair-extension gods. Rather, the ditzy blonde had friend and hairdresser Ken Paves film her as she gives herself a little ear-candling treatment. Supposedly, the process is a natural way of clearing out the nasty wax and gunk that clogs your ear canals. You buy the candles at a health food store, stick ‘em in your ear and light the top on fire — the smoke is supposed to travel down the ear canal and then suck out the debris. I’ve done ear candling a few times (with the assistance of friends) and have found it to work — the best part of the whole process is cutting open the candle at the end and seeing all the crap that was sucked out. It’s really satisfying if you’re into nasty stuff like I am. However, our lovely style editor, Erin, has informed me there are some who think that the process could damage the ear drum or something, so either go to a professional or, you know, avoid it entirely and just watch this vid.
