    Dr. Coleen Stice usually performs surgery on humans, but this week she had an entirely different type of patient — a bald eagle. Stice, an Omaha plastic and reconstructive surgeon, lent her skills to help the injured bird, found this spring with a mysterious head wound. The eagle was discovered on the ground south of Syracuse, Nebraska, in May and brought to Fontenelle Forest’s Rehabilitation Center near Elmwood, where it’s being cared for. Raptor experts were baffled over what caused the strange mark on the bird’s head, a spot that should be covered with white feathers.

    **SNIP** Experts say they’re seeing more people like John and Mabel: men and women as young as 18 who are freaking out about going bald. San Francisco dermatologist Andrea Hui says balding millennials are coming to her more than ever, asking her for everything from natural supplements like Nutrafol to more invasive procedures like PRP, which involves injecting your own plasma into your scalp. New York City stylist Angelo David has seen a “tremendous” number of young and balding clients too: “The new hair extension story is no longer short to long but thin to thick,” he says. “People want...

    Wispy, thinning and suspiciously free of grey, François Hollande’s boring hairstyle has never been held to much scrutiny,..But now the balding pate of the French president is at the centre of an embarrassing scandal dubbed coiffeurgate after the weekly paper Le Canard Enchaîné revealed that his personal hairdresser is on contract for almost €10,000 a month, paid from the public purse.The publication of the contract with the hairdresser, named as Olivier B, has sparked a row over extravagant spending by a Socialist president who once liked to see himself as “Mr Normal”. “I can understand the questions, I can understand...

    BOSTON (CBS) – Scientists at Yale may have discovered quite the off-label use for an FDA-approved arthritis drug. During a trial, which stretched for eight months, a 25-year-old man with almost no hair on his body grew a full head following treatment with the drug. He reported no noticeable side effects. The patient was suffering from a rare, highly visible disease known as alopecia universalis, which has no cure or approved long term treatment. The disease causes the loss of almost all body hair. According to scientists involved in the trial, the patient also grew eyebrows, eyelashes, and facial, armpit,...
  • A Viagra follow-up? Drug used to treat glaucoma actually grows human hair

    If you're balding and want your hair to grow back, then here is some good news. A new research report appearing online in The FASEB Journal shows how the FDA-approved glaucoma drug, bimatoprost, causes human hair to regrow. It's been commercially available as a way to lengthen eyelashes, but these data are the first to show that it can actually grow human hair from the scalp. "We hope this study will lead to the development of a new therapy for balding which should improve the quality of life for many people with hair loss," said Valerie Randall, a researcher involved...

  • Jab to end baldness 'ready in five years' using fat cells from sagging bellies

    09/01/2011 11:53:54 PM PDT · by rawhide · 16 replies ^ | 2nd September 2011 | Fiona Macrae
    An injection that gives middle-aged men the hairline of their youth could be available in just five years, scientists predicted last night. The jab would use fat cells from the tummy to pep up hair growth on the scalp. The required amount of fat would not be enough to make a noticeable difference to waistlines. In a series of experiments, researchers from Yale University in the United States looked at what triggers the hair growth. They found fat cells to be key, with immature fat cells producing chemical signals that ‘wake up’ dormant follicles, leading to the production of hair....

    "We were very scared, because it was the first time we had seen this," Castellano said. Keepers in Ecuador put that bear, which had previously been fed human food—including Coca-Cola—on its natural diet of fruits and bamboo, and added enrichment items, such as toys and exotic foods, into the bear's enclosure. Four months later the fur grew back.

    JUNE 10--Now that he is a ward of the California state prison system, wig-loving murderer Phil Spector has been forced to return to his au naturel state. As seen in the below mug shot, the 69-year-old Spector's dome is no longer covered by one of the fright wigs he wore during his criminal trials (the most recent of which ended in the music producer's conviction for killing actress Lana Clarkson in February 2003). Spector, who was sentenced last month to 19 years in prison, was photographed after arriving last week at the North Kern State Prison Reception Center in Delano.

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- The state Ethics Commission will investigate the scandal in which top aides to Gov. Eliot Spitzer used state police in a plot to discredit Republican Senate leader Joseph Bruno, according to a letter obtained by The Associated Press.

The letter addressed to Cuomo was provided by a state official on the condition of anonymity because the investigation hadn't been officially...
