Birth control pills in Shampoo

February 17, 2007 1:43pm CST
I was told by a friend that diluting birth control pills on your shampoo would make your hair shinnier, softer, more manageable and would grow faster. I've tried this and it works for me. I don't have to use a conditioner anymore. I was wondering if there are other people who tried this. If so, did it work for you? or did you experience negative effects from it?

I've never heard of this being done before and I don't quite understand why you'd obtain a prescription for birth controll pills and not use them for their intended purpose. Not to mention that their more expensive than conditioner!

I use them on my shampoo and my hair does grow faster than when I don't put the pills on the shampoo. But i don't think it makes all the hair manegable just the new hair that grows after using the pills. I personally prefer to put the pills on my conditioner because I massage it on my scalp and leave it on while I shower. but I aslo put pills on my shampoo. A fiend of mine told her doctor about it and the doctor prescribed her pills for that purpose. you should ask your doctor about it. I heard about this BCP on your shampoo from a Latin singer her name is Thalia. And No side effects.

This is really interesting.I have never heard of it.I would definitely give it a try but i am worried about my hair(worried that it may fall off!).Well this may not workout for everyone.But it is worth giving it a try.

Wouldn't it just be easier to use a good conditioner? I have to pay money for birth control pills, it's not a lot, but it's more than what I yearly pay for conditioner.
