According to a new study, plucking your hair out may be a good way to fight baldness. By doing this, not only the removed hairs grow back, but new ones sprout nearby. The team of researchers was led by Cheng-Ming Chuong, Principal Investigator of USC (University of Southern California) Stem Cell and their research was based on the “quorum sensing” principle.
The researchers have shown that plucking 200 hairs in a particular density and pattern can generate 1,200 hairs to grow. The experiment was conducted on a mouse. This study began a couple of years ago when Chen came from Taiwan at USC.
