Researchers in the UK may hold the magic potion to getting back your hair if you're balding.

A study conducted by the University of Manchester's Center for Dermatology Research found a compound could halt the effects of a protein suppressing hair growth within follicles.

The original drug (Cyclosporine A) that helped reverse hair loss had side effects that were too severe. After working with it, the researchers came up with a compound that not only treats osteoporosis, but promoted hair growth without dangerous side effects.

Is there any amount of money that would be too much to regain your hair? Or, is bald beautiful?
