1990 Jul-Aug;2This comparative, controlled study demonstrates the positive biologic effect on hair regrowth of a pulsed electrical field administered according to a regularized treatment schedule over 36 weeks. Mean hair count comparisons within the groups significantly favor the treatment group, which exhibited a 66.1% hair count increase over baseline. The control group increase over baseline was 25.6%. It is notable also that 29 of the 30 treatment subjects (96.7%) exhibited regrowth or no further hair loss. The process is without side effects and untoward reactions. The rationale of this phenomenon is unclear but is considered to be due to an electrophysiologic effect on the quiescent hair follicle, similar to that documented with respect to bone fracture and soft tissue repair enhancement. The electrical pulse may cause increased cell mitosis through calcium influx, involving both the hair follicle sheath and dermal papilla cells.

22 September 1990Once a week, 50 balding men sat for 12 minutes under a device that resembled a beauty salon hairdryer. Inside the hood were four pairs of positively and negatively charged electrodes – powered by a 12-volt battery – positioned between 1 and 5 centimetres from the person’s head. When the machine was turned on, no current flowed,as it would in an electromagnetic field; instead, the person’s scalp was bathed in an electric field.
The researchers gave active treatment to 30 of the men; the other 20 in the group did not experience the electric field.
The researchers monitored progress by counting the number of hairs in test patches on the temple and crown of each man before therapy began and after 12, 24 and 36 weeks. Of the 30 men who received the therapy, 29 had stopped losing hair by the end of the 36 week blind-trial. On average the men gained two-thirds more hair than they had at the start of the trial.
Science: An electric solution to losing your hair
BALD heads could be a thing of the past, according to Canadian dermatologists. About 35 to 45 per cent of all men, and 20 to 25 per cent of all women, suffer from 'male pattern baldness', or alopecia. Now, Stuart Maddin and his team from the University of British Columbia have found they can...
Scientits are working on making a hat which passes these electric pulses to the scalp
An electric patch makes hairless mice grow fur and may reverse balding in men when fitted inside a specially designed baseball cap.
Stimulating the scalp with electric pulses has also been shown to restore hair growth. However, it isn’t a very practical treatment because it involves being hooked up to a machine or battery pack for several hours a day.
To overcome this hurdle, Xudong Wang at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his colleagues have developed a wireless patch that sticks to the scalp and generates electric pulses by harnessing energy from random body movements.
When the flexible patch was attached to the backs of rats, their movements caused it to bend and stretch, activating the triboelectric effect. The resulting electric pulses stimulated faster hair re-growth in shaved rats compared with minoxidil lotion and inert saline solution.
Next, Wang’s team tested the patch on mice that were hairless because of a genetic deficiency in hair growth factors. After nine days, 2-millimetre-long fur grew on their skin under the patch, whereas only 1-millimetre-long hair grew on adjacent skin areas treated with minoxidil and saline solution. Hair density was also three times greater for the patch-treated areas than those treated with minoxidil and saline.
Studying the skin of the mice under a microscope revealed that the patch seemed to work by stimulating the release of natural chemicals that encourage hair growth such as keratinocyte growth factor and vascular endothelial growth factor.
However, the hat will only work in men who are currently losing their hair or have recently become bald

A hat that zaps the scalp with electricity helps reverse male balding
A scientist has designed an electric skin patch that stimulated fur growth in hairless mice and reversed his dad’s balding, and has now been made into a hat
