Cure Baldness by Turning-on Your Hair Follicles

Scientists have recently discovered that we share more in common with our hair than we might think. Both humans and hair have “turn ons” it seems. And while the things that turn-on men and women are very different than the things that turn hair follicles on and off, the basic principle remains the same. Specifically, there are certain events that can turn hair follicles on, priming them to support normal and health hair growth. However, hair follicles can be turned off too, sending them into a dormant state in which hair growth does not occur. In light of this new research, scientists hope to someday cure baldness by manipulating specific “pathways” to turn dormant (bald) areas of scalp on, thus re-growing hair and saving men and women from the mental, physical, and emotional stress of hair loss.
