Scientists in Japan claim the solution to hair loss may be lying in the chemicals used to cook McDonald's french fries.

Researchers at Yokohama National University used dimethylpolysiloxane, a chemical used in the silicone added McDonald's deep frying oil, to mass produce hair follicles.

According to the study published in the journal Biomaterials, the experiment was a success when the follicles were transplanted onto mice, and is expected to eventually work on humans.

The research team said they experienced a breakthrough when they were able to simultaneously generate up to 5,000 hair follicle germs (HFG) on each rodent.
