Baldness Breakthrough 2017?

It seems like we’ve been waiting for a hair loss breakthrough for a very long time. Every year, sufferers of male pattern baldness are told that a cure is just 5 years away.

Hair multiplication and cloning was expected to revolutionize the way that hair could be restored. The basic premise was that you can take a hair from the back of the head and simply clone it, making multiple hundreds or thousands of similar hairs.

These hairs, when taken from the back of the head are not affected by DHT and don’t suffer from miniaturization, meaning they’re there for good.

This diagram shows the simplified process of cloning the dermal papilla.

This diagram shows the simplified process of cloning the dermal papilla, which can then be replanted into the scalp creating the ‘starting block’ for a hair follicle. The initial hair follicle is usually isolated from a hair follicle that isn’t affected by DHT meaning it won’t be lost due to pattern baldness even when inserted into the front of the scalp.

Unfortunately, this hasn’t happened yet, or at least it isn’t available to the public, and scientists and researchers are still saying it’s 5 years away before this kind of procedure will be possible.

On the other side of the spectrum, ‘big pharma‘ the large pharmaceutical companies have been working to improve on the currently most effective drug, propecia.

Unfortunately, as many men who have tried it know, propecia (also known as finasteride) can have some very undesirable side effects, such as loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, and reduced ejaculatory volume, (plus many more.) Propecia can also cause shedding to begin with.

Loss of libido and decreased ejaculatory volume are just two of the side effects coomonly associated with propecia and are both ones that the author has experienced first hand. (Excuse the pun)

I personally experienced these side-effects when I tried the drug and it’s clear to me now that the small reward just isn’t worth the risk. Many men don’t even experience hair re-growth at all, and some continue to see a decline in hair coverage anyway.

Luckily there are much more effective ways to beat hair loss without using drugs. And the only side effects are glowing health, increased libido and plentiful energy.

Side effects that come about through balancing your body and providing it with what it needs to grow hair, whilst removing the toxins and waste that causes hair loss in the first place. But more on that later.

The truth is, if you’re waiting for a hair loss breakthrough to come in the form of the drug you will be sorely disappointed.

Hair loss is, on a fundamental biological level, an imbalance in the body that causes hair to shed. Just look at how rates of male pattern baldness have increased over time, and correlate strongly with modern sedentary lifestyles and poor diets.

Where ever industrialization goes, over time, male pattern baldness follows.

The good news about this is, it means there is a lot you can do to slow down the process, and even reverse it. Back to the point though.

As pattern baldness is caused by biological imbalance, trying to make this right with a pharmaceutical is only covering things up. Yes it may work in the short term, but ultimately your body will pay the price down the road.

We all need to listen to what our body is telling us so that we can learn how to heal it for ourselves, naturally. In the long term, any drug will do more harm than good.

Why take the risk of interfering with your body and fighting the symptoms when you could easily correct hair loss naturally anyway. Whether it’s a drug that inhibits 5-alpha-reductase to stop the production of DHT, or if it’s a new drug that inhibits Janus Kinase (JAK) (which puts hair follicles into a dormant phase) the result will be the same.

Tampering with the body in an unnatural way.


Mice re-grew hair using a topical solution (tofacitinib and ruxolitinib) that inhibited janus kinase. Unfortunately, these mice didn’t suffer from male pattern baldness in the first place so it’s unlikely the same affect will occur will humans who have lost their hair due to pattern baldness, even if the FDA gets around to approving the drug for use on humans.

For me personally, and for most of the readers of this blog, we don’t want to wait, and we don’t want to interfere with our body in an unnatural way.

We’ve decided to try and cure our hair loss naturally. And for those who have already lost a significant amount of hair that is unrecoverable (the scalp heals over preventing any new hair from possibly growing) hair cloning may offer an acceptable solution.

In the mean time, the quickest way to combat hair loss is to remove the DHT from the scalp directly and then follow the lifestyle and dietary changes that I write about at the Hair Loss Revolution.
