Scientists May Have Cured Baldness By Accident

Shampooing with a drug that was created to treat brittle bones just might be the future cure for baldness. 

 

Scientists may have accidentally found a drug therapy that actually promotes the growth of hair. 

Researchers are very optimistic that WAY-316606, a drug that was originally designed to help osteoporosis patients, when applied to the scalp actually helps boost hair follicles in only 2 days.

The drug blocks a protein that kills off growth and is one of the main causes of male baldness. Researches hope to create a topical cream, gel or a shampoo that would help promote hair follicle growth.

They hope to initiate clinical trials on men in the near future.
