3D printed hair follicles

Will we be 3D printing custom hair solutions in the near future?  The most likely answer is yes!
The printing process involves bouncing a pulsing laser off a mirror and through a lens. When it hits a ribbon containing the bio ink a droplet of the matter falls into place. About ten thousand micro-droplets are created every second. The resulting organic tissue would then need time to mature before these hair follicles are ready to grow.

Masturbation and hair loss in men

As you continue to age, the body decreases its production of important neuro-chemicals. On the other hand Masturbation limits the endocrine system which controls the release of such hormones.  With excessive masturbation, the body can go through accelerated damage to the tissue cells and organs. Men who keep masturbating excessively will eventually reach an exhausted state in which their bodies produce more inflammatory hormones and proteins, including prostaglandin E2 and DHT. These in turn might be the cause of pain and hair loss.

Does less hair mean more beard?

Scientists were curious to find out if men with beards are more susceptible to balding!

Interestingly; one basic difference that bearded men had with all the other people was that their rate of sweat evaporation differed. 


Their bearded area did not evaporate so much as their forehead, whereas, in the other groups, rates of sweat evaporation were identical. Scientists were suspicious about that fact, and the decided to keep track of these men for 10 years straight (now that's a geek life).

Excessive swimming and hair loss. Is there a link?

Any pool chemicals or ocean salt poses a threat to your hair health, whether or not you suffer from a hair loss condition. These agents tend to make hair feel dry and brittle, which is easily remedied by reducing your swim sessions and practicing routine deep conditioning hair masks



The water of the swimming pool essentially contains chlorine, which work as an effective anti-bacterial and anti-algae agent, helping the pool water to stay clean and hygienic. The problem is that, no matter how good it is for keeping the pool water hygienic, chlorine takes a negative toll on your hairs. It damages the cuticles of the hair shafts, which triggers hair fall through breakage and in addition to that chlorine can also harm the hair follicles on the scalp which can cause extreme hair loss.
Being a natural product, ocean salt (sea water) should be less damaging to hair than chlorine
Either way, in this article you will find some useful tips on caring for your hair to minimise the damage.

Hair Loss Cure for Men - Any recent advances?

The magic fix-all for hair loss is still far out of reach.  However advances in research can help us understand key contributing factors such as DHT.
Dihydrotestosterone, also known as DHT, is a concentrated form of testosterone that plays a determining role in the biological function of men. Despite the positive note that DHT is essential in the development of males, it seems ironic that the search for dihydrotestosterone blockers have been neglected.
