Yeuch! That urine thing .....

A few days ago I told everyone that one of our guests is using urine therapy and drinking his own morning wee. For the last few days he's been smelling very strongly of what smells like a floral perfume. I commented on it this morning and discovered it's neroli oil. Nice. But then he admitted that he's been slathering himself with it to hide the smell of stale wee as he's been rubbing ten day old urine on his head to try and counteract his baldness. Eeeeeeech! TEN DAY OLD pee? Really? On your scalp? OK, I'm not suffering from baldness so I can't really comment, but really I think I'd rather wear a hat! How about you?

Ewww 10 day old urine, nasty. My father stinks of urine, not because he uses it on himself, but he's too lazy in that department if you know what I mean. If it was a choice of going bald or using urine on my scalp, I'd rather go bald, no stigma in being bald, however there is if you stink of pee!

I don't know. I have heard about this urine therapy but I can't imagine myself doing it. Just the thought of it makes me feel ill.

Some people drink it and swear that it will cure cancer and all sorts of things. I just can't imagine it. I think there is a reason why our bodies get rid of waste.

Well, the urine therapy is not for everyone. There are indeed some people who would rather take their own pee than down concoctions of meds and other supplements. I think they're really just strong in the stomach and also they have this strong desire to get well. And a strong faith in their own capability, I guess.

I think there's a massive difference between using urine for something worthwhile, your health or wound healing, and using the stale stuff for the sake of vanity! Personally I don't use it at all, but I don't think the first is so bad if that's what folk want to do. Stale pee though must absolutely stink!

O, Wow. I can't believe someone would be this desperate. This is probably one of the most disgusting things I've even heard about in a while. The guy must be really desperate to go to such length as to use urine. I don't think I could have him around if that's what he's doing because I wouldn't be able to help myself I'd have to stare.

All in the name of vanity! I could understand it if it was something important, but it's not!

Eewee!!! ha ha, that's really desperate act ha ha sorry but there are several ways to cure baldness but not that kind of thing, that's very strange, my father has also problem from his head very few hair he's been using coconut oil to his head and also shampoo for hair grower, tell him to try this thing first before doing those again.

Yes it's 'Eeeeeeeeech!' Thank goodness I still have my hair. Even though a lot of them are turning white, I still have a good set on my scalp. And even if the only remedy for balding would be urine, I still think I wouldn't go that way. I don't think splashing perfume or oil would ever be enough to cure 'pee on skin(scalp)'.

Baldness is socially acceptable, but stinking of stale pee isn't!

I think I'd do something else about going bald or just go bald. Urine is bad enough, but 10 days old? How it has to stink! No wonder he's using a scent. He probably can't stand himself.

You are not serious? Lol.. actually putting wee on his head? The mind boggles it really does. I have never heard of that before even, let alone known anyone to do it lol! Maybe you just have some sort of weirdo magnet inside you? lol!

I can't imagine. I really can't imagine. He should at least buy something that would help his hair grow back, like on TV shopping online or it is better to buy a wig to cover his baldness because I really can't imagine what he's doing or maybe he should wear a hat, like you said.

I originally expected you to say that he had started to exude the smell of uirine that he had been consuming, which I suspect would happen if a person constantly added this to his metabolism. I doubt if he would notice himself since he is obviously accustomed to the smell on a daily basis, but someone could have mentioned it. As for putting stale urine on my scalp, there is nothing that could entice me to do this. Fortunately I can be quite philosophical about my age and despite my hair being very grey and receding I accept it as a natural process to ageing. I am 63 years old and see no point in colouring my hair or attempting to restore the growth in order to look younger. The simple fact is that I am not younger, so I would be foolish to try to deny it.

Once it's gone, it's gone, and I don't believe that any amount of urine will bring it back. I can understand if someone wants to use it for health reasons, but just for vanity seems extreme. And why wait until it's ten days old? Perhaps the smell makes your eyes water so much it takes your mind off what you're doing!

Pee? Are you serious. I really don't get it. When I was younger, they used to say that if you put a baby's urine soaked pamper on your face it would help with acne. I never, ever tried it, though, and don't know anybody who has.

oh, and I also heard that back in the day, before there was plumbing, people would pee in pots and save it. After a while, the pee would turn into something that they would clean their living spaces with.

I imagine the ammonia in pee would do the trick in both those cases. If I were to put pee on myself, I must be honest and say I'd rather use my own than an old nappy though! Yuk.

Yeah. Ammonia on your face... omg. I guess I'm just a bit squimish. I was in the doctor's office once and the assistant put on gloves to handle a urine sample. The doctor asked her why she was doing that. He was like, "What do you think is going to happen to you?" I don't blame her, though. I would have worn gloves too. I would appreciate gloves in handling my own urine.

I just can't believe we're all talking about pee here. The whole subject is so funny and now this guy is waiting "10" days to put it on his scalp??? It's just so darn disgusting to me, haha, but I can't stop laughing. Your comment to Asylum got me giggling hysterically and every time I think of it I'm laughing my head off. What's actually going to happen is he's going to put this on his scalp and get most of it in his eyes. Now we'll have a man with tons of hair but can't see. I hope he realizes all the yucky bacteria there is in this after 10 days and I'm guessing you can get some sort of disease from this crap, no?...UGH!!! ..can't even imagine. Who is he anyways?

There are certain things I think once they go they go.. such as hair and skin (sagging skin). I don't think pee or any other product will bring it back. Hubby started going bald in his early 20's.. by 25 he decided to just totally shave his head and he looks better than he did when he had hair.

Yeah, once it's gone, it's gone and you can put as much pee on your head as you like but I reckon it will stay gone. This guy also shaves his head, and he looks good like that. I don't see what he's worried about personally.

Hubby and I were just discussing this. He was watching one of those hair growing infomercials. I asked him if he had the money would he do it. He said at one point he'd thought about it, because I used to comment that I wish I could run my hands through his hair. When I said it I meant nothing by it, didn't realize he'd think otherwise. I told him he looks better now without hair than he did when I knew him with hair.. because it was already receding quite a lot when I met him. I've never seen him with a full head of hair, and not sure how that would look but I'm so used to it now I don't want him to change it.

Oh my gosh if someone was a guest in my home and doing that I would be really mad and ask them to stop while they were staying with me. I find this so disgusting. I was with a guy who wanted me to urinate in his mouth. I thought for sure he would vomit but he didnt. Instead I was the one trying not to vomit from watching him swallow it. Ugh its turning my stomach to think about it.

That's grim. As for the guy who's staying here, so long as he's keeping his stale pee to himself he's welcome to carry on. It doesn't affect me so I'm not bothered.

I hope you don't have to put up with this wacko much longer. Some years ago, I read of a bald farmer whose hair regrew after a cow took to licking his scalp each morning when he came to milk her.

10 days? I'm pretty sure pee that old would have a lot of bacteria in it and smell horrible. Have you asked why he does this? It makes no sense to rub it on yourself. Get that boy some lotion or something! For real, he needs to go to therapy, on TV they said drinking your pee can kill you eventually.

Providing he keeps it on his own scalp, it's fine by me. I mean, it doesn't affect me other than the fact that he whiffs of neroli oil at the moment. Had he not told me, I'd not have guessed. It's grim though, and I can't imagine wanting to do something like that!

I have never heard of that before it sounds absolutely disgusting I can't understand why anyone would resort to such desperate measures just to avoid going bald.I would definitely prefer to go bald than to stink of urine.Though im surprised that their does seem to be some evidence for it having an effect.From looking on the internet I have even seen claims that it can help treat acne though I would be even less likely to try this.Putting urine on my face would probably make me throw up.The only time I would consider using urine as some kind of treatment is if there was evidence that it could help a live threatening condition thay I had as the possible benefit would have to massively outweigh the disgust of using urine.

I can imagine that it may help urine as I would guess it would have a drying effect. I've never tried though and never intend to! For baldness though? I just can't come up with any logical reason why it would work.

I don't believe it will work agains baldness. Also not that it's healthy to drink your own morning (the first) urine. Some say it's healthy but after a whole night you will find a lot of toxics in it as well. That can never be healthy (might be the whole idea/positive thinking will help?). for sure is that if this should work world wide many people would do it (which is not the case). They also say that putting your feet into your own (morning) urine will help against "winter toes/feet". BTW the strong smell already proves enough that there is a lot of toxics in it.

I don't believe it will help baldness either, but each to their own.
