A hair follicle is part of the skin that grows hair by packing old cells together. Attached to the follicle is a sebaceous gland, a tiny sebum-producing gland found everywhere except on the palms, lips and soles of the feet. The follicle cells that extrude hairs from just below the surface of the skin are simply too hard to bring back to life, and even preventative therapies didn’t seem to be able to do much to keep them alive. But research on inducing stem cells to grow into follicle cells could change that forever.
