"It was cat hair I plucked off Millicent Bulstrode's robes. Look at my face." -Hermione Granger
Official Harry Potter Polyjuice Pin Badge
Containing among other things Fluxweed, Knotgrass and Lacewing flies, Polyjuice is a complex potion that enables those who take it to assume the physical appearance of another person. That is only if it also includes a part of that individual’s body! Everyone is different so depending on the individual's nature, the taste, texture and appearance of the polyjuice potion change.
Polyjuice potion first appears in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, when Hermione has an idea to sneak into the Slytherin Common Room and investigate Draco Malfoy, who they suspected was the heir of Slytherin. Harry, Ron and Hermione get hairs to mix with the polyjuice potion to pass off as members from the Slytherin House. Ron and Harry change into Crabbe and Goyle. Hermione on the other hand mistakenly had cat hair and turned into a cat! She spent some time in the Hospital Wing to recover.
If you plan on doing some investigations of your own, this Polyjuice Potion Pin is a helpful resource. Be sure to triple check, the hair you are planning to use!
