Men, rub coffee on your heads!

I'm not so sure of the accuracy of this article. I sense a vast feminist conspiracy (and rightfully so) of women round the civilized world hoping to gain a little dignity back from the days, which will never quite disappear-thanks to old movies- of women lathered in cold cream and decorated like a Christmas tree with pink foam curlers. I think I read in another scientific journal (wink) that the coffee is more effective if frothed in foamy milk before application.

Coffee could hold the secret to curing male baldness, according to new research.

Scientists have discovered caffeine stimulates the growth of tiny follicles in the scalp in men who are starting to lose their hair.

The finding could lead to new treatments for a condition that affects half of all British men by the age of 50.

A recent survey of five European countries found that British men are unhappier about being bald than most of their European counterparts, but are too embarrassed to do anything about it. More than half said going bald made them feel old and less attractive.

The new study, published in the International Journal of Dermatology, found that caffeine works by blocking the effects of a chemical known to damage hair follicles.

But drinking plenty of coffee may not be the best answer. More here
