HANOI (AP) Some Vietnamese girls are growing a little bit of a hair out of their heads, and the only way to make it grow back is to keep the fungus out.
Vietnamese women can now grow hair out from their heads with an experimental fungus known as bhajnhuan (hair fungus), which looks like hair but has a head-like shape and a fungus on its surface.
Videos of the fungus growing on Vietnamese girls’ bodies have been posted online.
Some girls are wearing them in the classroom.
But others are not wearing them at all, because they don’t want to offend their parents.
The girls can be identified by their distinctive hairstyles and colors.
The fungus can also be removed by simply washing them with warm water.
The Vietnamese government says bhajiuan has helped to eliminate hair loss in children and adolescents.
The World Health Organization has also called it an important tool in reducing infections and diseases.
Vetements de l’affaires in France have sent a sample to a laboratory in Belgium.
The lab is expected to make a report about the findings next week.
