There's more out there than those late-night commercials touting the Hair Club for Men and Rogaine. There's an entire underworld of home remedies, mystery pills, cow pee (really), and mythological easy fixes for baldness. You can now add this one to the list: Wasabi.
Kinin, a Japanese wasabi purveyor, has announced wasabi can help regrow hair on your fleshy pate, according to Sora News 24. The company is, of course, talking about the real stuff, not the dyed horseradish served in 99 percent of American restaurants.
If you're a frequent sushi eater and ready to call bullshit, well, that's fair, but Kinin contends you're doing it wrong. You're not supposed to eat the wasabi. Instead, you should massage it into your scalp. Their study says wasabi helps regrow hair more efficiently than minoxidil, the active ingredient in Rogaine.
