Using hair for fertilizer

November 16, 2005

My father keeps telling me to add hair to my soil mix as a slow-release fertilizer. As in, human hair - particularly my kids' because it doesn't have all the chemicals that are in mine.

Has anyone actually tried this, and do you know if it works? I remember that my dad's gardens looked great, but I'm having trouble thinking of hair mixed in with my soil!
