Summary of "The Psychology of Gray Hair."

Stress has long been associated with hair graying, yet there is little evidence to substantiate this claim. In a recent issue of Nature, Zhang et al. (2020) show that stress induces the release of noradrenaline from sympathetic nerves, which depletes the stem cells that give hair their color.

Lgr4 deletion delays the hair cycle and inhibits the activation of hair follicle stem cells.

It is known that Lgr4 plays an important role in hair follicle development, but the impact of Lgr4 on hair cycle is still unclear. In the present study, we have found that K14-Cre-mediated skin epithe...

An osteopontin-derived peptide inhibits human hair growth at least in part by decreasing FGF7 production in outer root sheath keratinocytes.

Given that unwanted hair growth (hirsutism, hypertrichosis) can cause major psychological distress, new pharmacological treatment strategies by safe and effective hair growth inhibitors that do not de...

Hair grooming and cleansing aids or other products meant for topical application to hair, usually human. They include sprays, bleaches, conditioners, rinses, shampoos, nutrient lotions, etc.

Auditory sensory cells of organ of Corti, usually placed in one row medially to the core of spongy bone (the modiolus). Inner hair cells are in fewer numbers than the OUTER AUDITORY HAIR CELLS, and their stereocilia are approximately twice as thick as those of the outer hair cells.

Sensory cells in the organ of Corti, characterized by their apical stereocilia (hair-like projections). The inner and outer hair cells, as defined by their proximity to the core of spongy bone (the modiolus), change morphologically along the cochlea. Towards the cochlear apex, the length of hair cell bodies and their apical stereocilia increase, allowing differential responses to various frequencies of sound.
