Does estrogen increase hair growth rate? I was told by a friend that I should crush up some BC pills and put them in my hair oil and apply to my scalp in order to increase hair growth. She said that is what BB super gro (old formula) really worked, it had hormones in it but the removed them after the hormone replacement backlash out of fear of a lawsuit. Has anyone else heard this. I have some pills left over in a pack and wanted to know before I crushed them up.
