I guess if men were to have a holy grail of what they would like, it probably would be thick, bushy hair. I know, I'm one of them. For women it's the age old problem of cellulite.

But men despair no more, hope lies on the horizon.

A new study done recently shows that areas of baldness may not be void of follicle stem cells. For years it was thought that hair follicles were absent in bald areas. New research dispels that belief.

Indeed, bald men have a normal number of follicle stem cells, but the bald spots lack progenitor cells. The way it works is stem cells-progenitor hair. So some how, someway we need to "wake up" the stem cells to continue their way toward a full, bushy head of hair. More will follow, so stay tuned.
