As regular readers of The Beauty Brains know, we’re always on the look out for the latest breakthroughs in the science of hair growth. So, we were intrigued by this article from Science Daily about new research showing a protein that increases blood vessel growth in skin can also promote hair growth.
In testing done on mice, researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) were able to increase the size of hair follicles and boost total hair volume by 70%. This discovery may apply to humans as well since male pattern baldness is caused by shrinking follicles. This is exciting news for our male readers who are worried about baldness so stay tuned for more.
