Hi. Ok, here is the absolute LATEST (As of November 2006):
I myself have been following this discovery's progress since I first heard about it about a year ago. So where exactly is L'Oreal currently in its design? In the "Trial and Error" phase. No success as of yet, and even if there was, The process of determining Side-Effects and other dangers and THEN getting it approved for mass-sale, is one that takes MONTHS and MONTHS! This pill is NOWHERE near ready and wont be for years. Something else that is quite interesting, is that there IS already a drug that causes Permanent hair straightening AND AN EXISTING GEL THAT STRAIGHTENS HAIR FOLLICLES PERMANENTLY! The downside is that it (the drug) is EXTREMELY dangerous with side effects such as Sterility.. It's called "INTERFERON ALPHA" and is used by Hepititis C Patients. So obviously thats not an option!!!!!!!! Something worth considering though is a product called "PRINCEREIGNS SHAVING GEL". Expensive yes..but absolutely harmless. This shaving gel, actually straightens the hair follicle so that future hairs will NOT be "ingrown"!! Problem solved, Or so it is thought.. 2 Things before trying:
Anyways, hoped this help. I, fascinated as can be by the concept of changing one's natural hair-structure, will keep on researching and post the latest here in a few months.
Take care all!
