I'm speculating about the reason for that nickname.

It's the maker's name. Jean-François Lazartigue was a French celebrity hairdressist of the 60s and 70s. His big thing was défrisage or straightening, in which the pianist Winifred Atwell had been a bit of a pioneer in Britain a decade earlier.

He later set up a company to sell the straightening products which he used in his salons, and one has to imagine that he did very nicely out of it. Still alive, as far as I can tell.

One hopes he took it somewhere more healthy than the Conk so vividly described by Malcolm X...

I have an unusually big tongue. I can make it long and really wide. It's not overly mobile, my nan can touch the tip of her nose with hers but mine refuses to curve upwards enough to do that without the help of my fingers. I had no idea it was anything special until one one my roommates freaked out about me licking an icecream. Turns out that most people can't stick it out much more than an inch. Mine isn't even that impressive next to someone like Gene Simmons, although he only ever goes for length - I've got way more girth.

Fortunately, he did.

You don't have to believe everything that you read in official corporate histories, but it seems that the desire to straighten hair without the use of caustic soda was his starting point. Precisely what's in the "natural butters" that he uses instead he probably wouldn't tell you, but his products are certified as sulfate-free, silicone-free (with one exception), and vegan.

Reading a book about forensic things and court cases, and I keep puzzling over why someone would have a dressing gown in court.

No, a third glance shows it is 'the judge gave her a dressing-down' - hyphen included in the original text.

On the other hand, that might have been Patricia the Stripper and she might have been complaining that she was feeling cold in her working clothes...

No, it's a Scottish anthropologist and the book is actually about the different parts/bones of the body.
With relevant court cases mentioned when appropriate.

R vs Miss P T Stripper, 1924, was the relevant case I believe.

DPP rather than R I believe...
