News that scientists have successfully managed to grow new hairs from tissue samples has caused great excitement.
Baldness is an affliction which affects a great many adults – an estimated 70% of men and 30% of women are affected at some point during their lifetime.
Hitherto, those with hair loss have had very few choices as to how to treat it. Wigs are considered ‘naff’ nowadays with the risk of being exposed putting many people off. Hair transplantation literally moves hair from the back of the head to the scalp and often requires a lifetime of hormone based medication to avoid the hair being lost again.
However, being able to grow new hair is considered a big step forward, as it has proven quite difficult previously. Past experiments have found the human cells transforming back into skin instead of growing new hair. The new technique avoids this by clumping cells together so that they keep their identity. 5 out of 7 cases had formed new hair follicles after six weeks.
Yet the researchers warned that using these artificially grown hair cells within hair transplantation was still years in the future:
It’s closer, but it’s still some way away because in terms of what people want cosmetically they’re looking for regrowth of hair that’s the same shape, the same size, as long as before, the same angle.”
In the meantime, there are other approaches to the problem of hair loss showing excellent results without the cost, hassle or discomfort of a hair transplant.
