Researchers find way to regrow hair story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Researchers have made a potentially huge breakthrough for millions of men and women who are going bald.

Doctors at Columbia University have found a way to grow new human hair.

In a laboratory, they figured out how to create new hair follicles from stem cells.

That's a big advance from previous methods that just transplanted hair follicles from other parts of the body.

This is just a start. So far the new follicle cells have only been tested on mice. It may be five years or more before the technique can be used on humans.
