What if you could use a printer to regrow your thinning hair…
Well, researchers have just discovered a way to grow hair follicles in a petri dish using stem cells and plastic molds made on a 3D printer. The molds recreate the environment that human hair cells live in.
Follicle cells from human donors were placed on the plastic mold, along with cells that produce keratin. The cells were then “fed” and within just three weeks, the lab-grown human hair follicles starting sprouting hair.
It sounded great…
Until I read that the study author believes the breakthrough can “enhance drug discovery practices at pharmaceutical companies.”
Luckily, you don’t need this discovery — or the Big Pharma drug they hope to create and profit from — to restore your full head of hair.
You see, the scientists growing follicles in a petri dish are right about one thing. The real source of healthy hair lies in your follicles.
And the only way to revive your hair is to start at the roots. Your hair follicles are alive and well. And they control how full and vibrant your hair is.
Fortunately, there is a solution for hair loss that can help you regrow new hair — today.
It’s called PRP stem cell therapy and I’ve been using it to help my patients regrow hair naturally.
You know that stem cells are your body’s master cells. They’re the basic building blocks of your entire body. These undifferentiated cells turn themselves into any other kind of human cell — including hair cells.
And research proves it works…
In one study, 11 patients with male pattern baldness had no luck with hair-loss drugs. After PRP hair thickness increased by 31%.1
The results were even more impressive in a new study from Greece. Researchers used either PRP or minoxidil on 40 patients. At the end of three months, they analyzed the results using digital camera photography and dermoscopic scans.2
The results were dramatic. The PRP patients had significantly more hair growth. Without any dangerous or unwanted side effects.
The whole session from collecting stem cells to injecting the PRP takes only a few hours. There is no downtime. And there’s no risk of rejection because we’re using your own stem cells.
The effects are fast and lasting.

Reverse Hair Loss and Regrow Lush Locks
There are also ways you can restore hair loss and regrow thicker, fuller hair right now. Here are two ingredients that will nourish your stem cells to bring back a full head of thick hair.
- First, feed your stem cell follicles with this B vitamin. In your body, vitamin B3 (niacin) breaks down into a molecule called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). NAD+ is found in every cell in the body. It converts nutrients from food into energy that fuels your body — including hair follicles.
But levels decline with age. So your body sends NAD where it’s needed most, like your heart and lungs. As a result, your hair follicles don’t get what they need. Fortunately, you can make NAD+ from a B vitamin called niacinamide.
In one study, women with hair loss rubbed this vitamin into their scalps daily. While the placebo group saw no results, those who used niacinamide grew saw new hair growth in less than 30 days. Remarkably, the new hair started to grow in places it hadn’t grown in years.3
Look for serums that contain niacinamide to apply directly to your scalp. Make sure any product you buy has at least 5% niacinamide. You should see results in four to six weeks.
- Then, use fenugreek and black cumin seed oil to keep your follicles active. The seeds and leaves of the fenugreek plant contain a form of niacin (vitamin B3) called nicotinic acid.
Niacin is a vasodilator. It increases blood flow to the capillaries that feed your hair root. In one study of a serious balding condition called alopecia, women were given either niacin or a placebo. After six months of applying it topically, the niacin group had a significant increase in the fullness of their hair.4
The oil from black cumin seed (nigella sativa) is rich in beta-sitosterol. In one study, a group of people were treated with black cumin seed oil for three months. Results showed 90% of the black seed group had increased hair thickness compared to only 7% in a placebo group.5
