The article I read said the anti-foaming agent, something like dimethylsiloxane, prompted formation of new folicles buds. But I'd swear that shiat is everywhere, including hair care products.

It is. It's the go to silica in organic chemistry or something.

Japanese study: Using silica nano-matrix in stem cells, we created a method for folicle growth in mice.

"The key for the mass production of [clusters of hair-producing stem cells] was a choice of substrate materials for culture vessel,"

my local mcdonalds did a limited run of those hair-producing stem cell clusters. they just basically tasted like mcrib

Do you eat hair care products?

Spraying them on existing hair would not give the same results as the article made up as click bait.

I am absolute scientific proof that McD's fries do NOT cure baldness.

I cover my bald head in a natural gelatinous substance and cultivate patches of mold to simulate hair.  They call me Sammy Agar.
