Japanese scientists say they’ve found a new treatment for hair loss using a silicon that McDonald’s adds to its french fries to prevent oil splatter.

According to a paper published in the journal Biomaterials, scientists were able to regrow hair in mice using the method.

The chemical helped the scientists mass-produce something called hair follicle germs which are a key ingredient in hair growth.

Preliminary research suggests the same method will be just as successful when it’s used on people.
