New pill to make hair curly or straight

Posted on: December 15, 2009

Flat irons may become a thing of the past as researchers for L’Oreal in Paris say they’ve identified what causes curls.   According to their findings, the answer lies below your scalp in the hair bulb — which is hook-shaped for curly hair and straight for straight hair.

It’s believed that those bulbs could be altered using hormones, meaning that a simply pill may one day be able to turn curly hair straight and vice versa.

“I think this could be potentially revolutionary if it actually changed the shape of the bulb within the hair follicle,” said Dr. Diane Berson, a dermatologist at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

L’Oreal said its findings could also lead to a pill that reverts gray hair back to its original color.
