Scientists however seem to have made a breakthrough in curing Alopecia and hair thinning and found a baldness cure: Treatment for alopecia and baldness as ‘stem cells’ RE-GROW hair. HAIR loss is being reversed with a new treatment that cures baldness, scientists say.
"Hair follicles have been grown from progenitor cells, which are similar to stem cells, according to researchers form the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine.The cells transform into skin cells that sustain hair follicles, they said. After creating the new follicles, the scientists placed them onto mice. They found the mice were able to produce hair afterwards.
In humans a patient suffering from hair loss would give scientists their own progenitor cells, and the hair follicles would be grown in a lab. Once fully grown, they could be transplanted directly onto the patient."

The general term for hair loss is alopecia. There are many types of hair loss, including male- and female-pattern baldness, scarring alopecia and alopecia areata.
Pattern baldness affects about half of all men by 50 years old. It starts with a receding hairline, and then progresses to a thinning on the crown and temples.
Scarring alopecia is normally caused by other conditions. The condition involves the hair follicles becoming completely destroyed.
Coin-sized patches of baldness is usually a sign of alopecia aerate. It’s caused by problems with the immune system.
