Research Shows that Fatty Cells in the Scalp May Spur the Renewed Hair Growth

Researches from the Yale University have found out recently that fat cells in the skin can initiate hair regrowth by interacting with dormant stem cells in the hair follicles of the bald scalp. Bald people still have stem cells in the roots of their hair follicles that normally grow hair but they are for some reason unable to regenerate hair so that they went to sleep.

Researchers have been able to prove that when hair dies, the layer of fat in the scalp shrinks. And vice versa, when hairs start growing again the fat layer grows too and they identified the molecule that is involved in spurring the renewed growth of fatty stem cells in the scalp. They are now working on identifying other factors that play their role in regulating the new hair growth.
