When the drug WAY-316606 was created, it’s intended purpose was to treat osteoporosis, which causes brittle bones. But it may cure baldness as well.
As scientists from the University of Manchester observed in lab experiments, it had a dramatic effect on hair follicles donated by men with male pattern baldness. It caused hair to grow a third longer than it normally would, achieving two millimeters of growth in just six days. It also helped maintain hair growth for longer.
