Is coffee the cure for hair loss?
WHO would have thought that warm frothy brew that works so many wonders of a morning, could also be the cure for hair loss.
Coffee has emerged as the latest cure for baldness according to scientists, but drinking it isn't quite enough.
A study was carried out at a Germany University, which found when you treated an extract a human hair organ from a person's head with testosterone and caffeine in a test tube, the caffeine made the hair grow faster.
But for it to have any effect, you would have to consume 50 cups of coffee a day, which would be toxic to the human body.
So, scientists have made a shampoo from concentrated caffeine which promises to reduce hair loss by 20%.
And sorry to those already a bald eagle, they say it won't work for you as the hair follicles have already died, but for those who think they may be starting to thin out a little on top, this may be the answer.
