    I've been reading that Off Topic thread about urine therapy and i was wondering if urine has all those vitamins and things vital for life, should we use it in our hair? Has anyone used urine in their hair???

    Here's an article about urine as our own perfect medicine: http://www.all-natural.com/urine.html

    I haven't heard of that. But I think I'll be sticking to what I've been doing. Sounds a little off to me. But, who knows?

    Many of your hair products (skin products too) have urine in them. Just look at the label. Urine, also called urea, is a natural moisturizer and has been used for a long time now in beauty products.

    Urine and Urea are not exactly the same. Urea is a chemical that is found in urine, but it can be made synthetically in the lab. (it was actually the first organic chemical to ever be synthesized in the lab - I know i'm such a geek) I get your point isis, but I disagree with saying that excretory byproducts are found in our beauty products just because the chemicals are the same.

    Yet it is true NubianAngel, at least according to research (I'm a geek too). Urea has been used for a long time for beauty products and it really is the same. I'm aware of such a thing as synthetic urea but it is not moisturizing as the real thing. Not to go off topic but urea is also used in numerous other products, such as Murine eye drops (that's where the name comes from) for its moisturizing properites.

    Isn't urea suppose to be bad for your hair? I recall seeing a post or two about avoiding products that contain urea, because it drys your hair out.

    Oh, I wasn't disputing any studies on the effects of urea, just pointing out that since urea is just one component of urine, it could be misleading to use the two words interchangeably. But if you are saying that the effects are the same and thats' why it's urine in these products and not urea, than I guess it's just semantics and another story. Anyway....back to the topic.

    Man, this is sick. I don't do Golden Showers.
    If I wanted long hair that bad, I'd just get a weave and be done with it.

    What's next? Doo-doo hair mask?

    Y'all are sleeping on the effects of urine. I put it on my face and it is soo soft and the bumps are going away and the dark spots are evening out. I have a natural glow to my face. Poohbear I will use the urine on my hair and let you know how that goes. Urine is sterile there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, for you extremely closed-minded individuals.

    hey, I'm not close minded. I'm hesitant... extremely hesitant.

    My pee pee doesn't look good enough, smell good enough and doesn't come out of a good enough place for me to drink or put on my body... unless this pee is going to give me super woman skin and hair, I don't think that it's worth it.

    Urea is not the same thing as urine...

    Urea is a soluble weakly basic nitrogenous compound CO(NH2)2 that is the chief solid component of mammalian urine and an end product of protein decomposition; is synthesized from carbon dioxide and ammonia, and is used especially in synthesis (as of resins and plastics) and in fertilizers and animal rations.

    Urine is waste material that is secreted by the kidney in vertebrates, is rich in end products of protein metabolism together with salts and pigments, and forms a clear amber and usually slightly acid fluid in mammals but is semisolid in birds and reptiles.
