Scientists Grow Hair on Disgusting Bald Mouse

I know more than a few of you out there are bald. I guess it’s easy for me to say please avoid the comb over, since I’m not bald. But seriously, you aren’t fooling anyone with that haircut. Especially when the wind catches it and you end up with a giant punk rock mohawk on the side of your head. Thanks to advances in science, there’s new hope that you can get some of that hair back on your chrome dome though without resorting to hair sculpting.

Scientists in Japan have taken a bald mouse and successfully regrown its hair. Even more interesting is that the scientists were able to control the color and density of hair. You see that on this particular bald mouse that appears to have eyelashes growing out of his neck. Mice are so ugly.

These researchers cultivated two different kinds of mice hair follicles and then transplanted them onto a mouse. It took about three weeks for 74% of the follicles to grow hair. The scientists then transplanted the hair follicles on the mouse’s back, and it grew human hair.¬†Certainly, if they can grow human hair on a mouse, they’ll be able to grow it on human heads before long.
