What once was seemingly impossible for an irreversible change like hair loss, now has been made possible with a talented Japanese research team who claim to have grown hair follicles in the lab

This can be the next big thing for hair loss and a moment of victory for bald individuals, especially men.

How was this made possible?

The system revolves around organoids, which are tiny, basic replicas of organs that researchers grow using stem cells in lab culture dishes.

By accurately simulating the interaction between the two types of embryonic cells, this team was able to produce hair follicle organoids. They then adjusted the cell spacing until they found a layout that encouraged hair follicle growth.

A step closer to eradicating hair loss

This study can lead to effective hair growth drugs and medications that can affect hair color pigmentation.

What’s left to do is employ human stem cells for drug development and regenerative medicine applications to reconfirm the results and make them suitable for human consumption.
