This Unusual Drug Has Been Found to Boost Hair Growth in Just Two Days



Hair
loss—whether subtle or overwhelming—is a super common affliction that’s often
hard to treat. While there’s plenty of options on the market claiming to boost
hair growth, it can still be rather difficult to find one that works for everyone, which is why we can’t help but keep our eyes peeled for the next big hair
loss-curing innovation.

The
latest find? A drug used to treat brittle bones. A study published in the
journal Public Library of Science Biology recently found that this drug—which
is intended to treat osteoporosis—can block a naturally occurring protein that
kills off hair growth and therefore prevent hair from shedding prematurely.

The
treatment, which is known as WAY-316606, could be a major breakthrough for
those suffering from hair loss, especially because results from the study found
that the drug was able to boost hair growth in just two days.

“The fact this new agent,
which had never even been considered in a hair loss context, promotes human
hair growth is exciting because of its translational potential: it could one
day make a real difference to people who suffer from hair loss,” said lead
researcher, Dr. Nathan Hawkshaw from Manchester University to The Sun. “We are looking at using it as
a topical treatment, a gel or shampoo that could reach the follicle.”

Although, it’s important to
note that the study focused on hair follicles donated by men and not women, so it’s
unknown if it would have the same effect on females. However, the bone drug
hasn’t been associated with any side effects, which is a major plus considering the
serious and possibly life-altering effects of other hair loss treatments like
minoxidil.

Researchers are hoping to
begin clinical trials with this drug on men with thinning patches in the near future, so we might see this solution hit the market in the next few years. We’ll be sure to update
with more information as it’s released, but until then, here’s a few other options for treating thinning hair.
