When you transplant hairs, you're importing a substantial amount of skin. The dermal papilla of the transplanted hair is physiologically different. If it is all the same, why isn't it androgen sensitive?

You need to read more carefully. We all know that the Wnt pathway is implicated in cell differentiation. However, the idea that simply injecting Wnt into skin will initiate HF neogenesis has been discarded. If it was that simple, we wouldn't be bald right now. If you want Wnt to grow hair you need to wound the skin. However, it has never actually been demonstrated that wnt applied to a wound can grow mature hair follicles.
I think Elaine Fuchs, who I believe is the author of that article has spoken out against this very notion.
