Hair follicles are known to contain a well-characterized niche for adult stem cells : Mesenchymal stem cells in the dermal sheath and the bulge, which contains epithelial and melanocytic stem cells. Stem cells in the hair bulge, a clearly demarcated structure within the lower permanent portion of hair follicles, can generate the interfollicular epidermis, hair follicle structures, and sebaceous glands.
