New research could help reverse baldness

New scientific information about what makes some men go bald could lead to the potential reversibility of hair loss.

The study at the University of Pennsylvania found that men go bald because of the dysfunction of stem cells in their hair follicles.

The cells don't evolve the way they're suppose to.

Scientists knew the problem was in the hair follicles, but not exactly how it began.

Experts say this finding will begin a whole new area of baldness research.
