London, United Kingdom, January 12, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Medical Hypotheses journal reports a possible breakthrough in our understanding of hair loss which could one day lead to a baldness cure.
Paul Taylor from HairGrowthSOS.com spent seven years of independent research into androgenetic alopecia following concerns about his own hair loss. In his article he explains how both male and female hair thinning, hair loss and baldness involves the continued growth of certain skull bones which lie directly beneath the scalp where hair loss develops. He calls this bone growth, "skull expansion."
Skull expansion seems to have finally solved certain mysteries that have been baffling hair loss boffins for years. These include why the same shape (or pattern) of hair loss will always develop in men with severe baldness. When baldness develops at both the front and crown of the head, eventually, just a small horseshoe shaped area of hair growing at the back and sides will remain. Skull expansion explains why this happens, something the current theory for hair loss cannot do.
Another mystery involves the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Male pattern baldness has been linked to DHT, but this hormone also causes body and facial hair to grow at puberty. Skull expansion explains how DHT is connected to both hair loss and hair growth.
If this new theory is confirmed, it could lead to a total redirection of genetic research, affect future treatment methods and might eventually lead to a baldness cure.
