I just came across this new article on some interesting findings regarding hair regrowth: http://food.ndtv.com...e-growth-753885

 

The study focused on (believe it or not) how plucking hairs out can actually trigger hair regrowth--more hair, and possibly in a wider area than was plucked.

 

Obviously this isn't going to work well for folks with no or too few hairs to pluck in the first place. And I can't imagine how tough it would be psychologically for someone to start pulling out their remaining hair anyway.

 

However (and this is where my question to Pat comes in), the study also pointed out this:

 

Tests showed that the plucked follicles signal distress by releasing inflammatory proteins, which cause immune cells to rush to the site. In turn, these send out signals to all neighbouring follicles indicating that it is time to grow more hair.

 

So Pat (or anyone else), given what you know about topical delivery systems and skin pentration of various molecules, etc, can you envision a topical delivery system that would work to deliver those same "inflammatory proteins" into the skin for the purposes of inducing the same response as actually plucking the hair? I'm assuming those proteins can be identified and produced in the lab too, of course.

its a good question, looks like youve done the research for Patrick, all he has to do is bring it to market and see if any guys start growing there hair back

proteins arent going to absorb well topically.   But maybe if the proteins can be identified than small molecule mimics or secretagogues can be developed

Thanks Pat! I was thinking too maybe there's a way to trigger those same inflammatory proteins in the skin without plucking, but I can't really imagine what triggers might work.

 

And no comment about the other thing, lol
