Scientists at Japan's Yokohama University have found dimethylpolysiloxane can grow hair on bald mice and they think it could do the same on bald humans. According to the study, hair follicle germs using the silicone additive were transplanted onto the skin of the bald mice, and black fur sprouted within a few days. “We demonstrated that the integrity of the oxygen supply through the bottom of the silicone chip was crucial to enabling both HFG formation and subsequent hair shaft generation,” Prof Junji Fukuda,...
