A new solution to hair loss is giving hope to people who do not want to take medication or use hair plugs.

Researchers found that they can take the cells that create hair follicles and clone them.

They discovered that those cloned cells sprouted new hair, unlike other methods that move hair from one part of the head to another.

This treatment actually adds new hair to the mix.

Experts say research is still in the early stages and more studies are needed.

However, they are hopeful this method will work for women, who are often not candidates for hair transplants.
