Post New Baldness Cure???

Quote:
Shampooing with a drug designed to treat brittle bones could help cure baldness within days, research suggests.

Scientists found the therapy promotes speedy sprouting of hair in lab tests.

It works by blocking a naturally occurring protein that kills off growth and plays a key role in male baldness.

Experts are “optimistic” the treatment, known as WAY-316606, could one day help millions of men.

Researchers found the drug, originally developed for osteoporosis, boosted growth from human hair follicles in just two days.

Re: New Baldness Cure???

I think I read somewhere that testosterone promotes the growth of beard hair in some genetic make-ups.
However, the same testosterone on bearded men eventually causes baldness (without losing the beard).
So, the current research is on testosterone blockers for the scalp.

So, if you have a beard... you'll be bald eventually.

I guess I don't have that beard problem and a full head of hair.
