YAY! No More Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow? A Touted Solution To Hair Loss & Thinning.

Exciting news from South Korean scientists about the discovery on how to end baldness.

Thanks to researchers led by Choi Kang-yeol of Yonsei University in Seoul baldness and thinning hair may soon be a thing of the past.  The South Korean team created a new biochemical agent they say not only prevents hair loss but actually promotes the growth of new hair.


The new miracle compound is called PTD-DMB.

The research team found that two protein found on the scalp that binds together causing the loss of hair and prevents new growth.   The new biochemical agent, PTD-DMB, effectively blocks those two proteins from binding together.  Hence preventing hair loss and allowing for new follicles to develop.


When Choi and the team applied PTD-DMB to the bare skin of mice for 28 days, researchers saw it led to the growth of new hair follicles. When adding a substance (used in the treatment of epilepsy, bipolar disorder, and migraines) was applied with PTD-DMB, new hair growth among the mice was even faster.

The team is currently testing PTD-DMB for any toxicity.  This news is exciting for me because it may be a way I can grow thicker hair.  I’ve never had thick hair, so I am very hopeful.
