More evidence that this stuff works.

Japanese researchers have successfully grown hair on hairless mice by implanting follicles created from stem cells, they announced on Wednesday, sparking new hopes of a cure for baldness.

Led by professor Takashi Tsuji from Tokyo University of Science, the team bioengineered hair follicles and transplanted them into the skin of hairless mice.

The creatures eventually grew hair, which continued regenerating in normal growth cycles after old hairs fell out.

We all know stem cells are the most likely answer but how and when no one knows.
