Curly hair gene has been discovered by scientists
Curly hair gene has been discovered by scientists. Depending on the variation of this gene, humans have either straight or curly hair.
This discovery may help predict whether a baby will have straight or curly hair, and will also help the criminal detectives through the use of DNA to construct a profile of suspects and victims.
Studies have shown that 45% of Europeans have straight, 40% wavy, and only 15% curly hair. Another interesting fact is that the curly hair is hereditary in 90% of cases.
Scientists hope the discovery of this gene will help to create treatments for straightening or curling the hair, without treating the hair directly. They think about discussing this possibility with a large cosmetics companies.
The discovery of this gene will change the lives of many women.
