at least we know it is no bulls*it because it is patented by Elaine Fuchs who has made very important findings in the hair biology field. if she says it is worth looking into it then it is worth it.

I haven’t looked into the role of that protein but the original article states that in order to grow hair it must be expressed whereas in the patent it says that you need to downregulate it.

maybe we should find the connection between that protein and other known factors (wnt/ß-catenin for example) and then make a conclusion how dangerous that stuff it and find a way to modulate it. I am just saying …
unfortunately I don’t have the time to research it at the moment.
