A new study shows how to use nanotube technology to treat hair loss using a simple process.
The researchers, led by Professor Mark Cramer from the University of Technology Sydney, say they hope this could lead to an alternative to topical hair-replacement drugs.
The study, published in the journal ACS Nano, also shows the use of nanoparticles to treat a variety of conditions, including burns and cancer.
“There’s been a lot of talk about the use, or the potential use of nanotechnology for the treatment of hair loss,” Dr Mark Cramer, a senior author on the study, said.
The study looked at how a nanotub is formed and how it can be used to improve the properties of the hair. “
Nano technology has a number of uses in cosmetics, but there’s also a lot that’s going to come from it for other areas of medicine, which is a very exciting area of research.”
The study looked at how a nanotub is formed and how it can be used to improve the properties of the hair.
“The nanoparticle is created by mixing two layers of different substances, and then the surface of the nanoparticle gets coated with a surface layer,” Professor Cramer said.
The surface layer can be made from a polymer, which helps to form the nanotuber, or it can form from a semiconductor or gold, Professor Cramers said.
A nanoparticle that can be coated with nanoparticles has been used to create some of the most common types of hair-repair treatments, including gel-based treatments, to treat scalp infections, burn scars and hair loss.
Nanotubes were also the subject of a previous study, and Professor Crams said it was clear that nanoparticles could be used in this way for other types of treatments.
“What we’ve done here is show that nanotuseles can be a very effective and safe treatment,” he said.
Nanotechnology has been a hot topic in hair care for a while.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is warning against hair-based cosmetics that contain nanoparticles, but the technology has been around for years and has a long history of being used in other industries.
Professor Crums said the study could lead other scientists to the same conclusion.
“We’re finding a lot about how nanoparticles are forming,” he told ABC Radio.
“If it’s being used for cosmetic use, it might be used for hair loss.”
