Background: Dietary supplements are traditionally used over-the-counter products for the treatment of hair loss. [...] Key Method Methods: A randomized, double-blind, placebocontrolled study was conducted over 6 months in 30 healthy women suffering from telogen effluvium. The efficacy of the supplement was evaluated by means of digitalized epiluminescent microscopy (TrichoScan) performed before treatment and after 3 and 6 months.Expand
A proprietary herbal extract against hair loss in androgenetic alopecia and telogen effluvium: a placebo-controlled, single-blind, clinical-instrumental study.
TLDR
Herbal formulations were found to be more effective in preventing and reducing hair loss than placebo at every assessment point, and eutrophic effect for scalp hair is interpreted as the final outcome of the entire content of the herbal formula.
Efficacy and Safety of a Food Supplement Containing L-cystine, Serenoa repens Extract and Biotin for Hair Loss in Healthy Males and Females. A Prospective, Randomized, Double-blinded, Controlled Clinical Trial
TLDR
Dietary supplementation with Lambdapil® Anti Hair Loss capsules for 6-months was safe and effective in both women and men suffering from hair loss.
Controlled clinical trial for evaluation of hair growth with low dose cyclical nutrition therapy in men and women without the use of finasteride
TLDR
The use of nutritional supplements showed consistent improvements in both treatment groups of men and women against the controlled groups with a correction of hair fall and minimum 18% increased density within 2 months with further improvement to a maximum of ABSTRACT.
Growing evidence of the beneficial effects of a marine protein‐based dietary supplement for treating hair loss
TLDR
A dietary supplement containing a marine complex and other natural ingredients can safely and effectively promote hair growth and decrease hair shedding in women and men with thinning hair.
Nutraceutical compound for the treatment of telogen effluvium associated with brittle nails syndrome
Introduction: The use of nutraceutical products in the treatment of chronic telogen effluvium of non-specific cause – associated or not with signs and symptoms of nail plate frailty – has been
Therapeutic Efficacy of Combination Therapy Using Oral Cyclosporine with a Dietary Supplement (Pantogar®) in Twenty-Nail Dystrophy
TLDR
Oral cyclosporine can be a valuable therapeutic option in patients with TND and had significantly more patients whose improvement was rated as almost clear, marked, or moderate compared to the control group (p<0.001).
Chemoprevention of doxorubicin-induced alopecia in mice by dietary administration of l-cystine and vitamin B6
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the combined oral administration at high dosages of l-cystine and vitamin B6 is an effective chemopreventive treatment against alopecia induced by doxorubicin treatment in C57BL/6 mice.
Nutritional Correction for Hair Loss, Thinning of Hair, and Achieving New Hair Regrowth
TLDR
It is experimentally proven that DHT causes accumulation of ROS which in turn releases TGF s1 leading to miniaturization, and this action can be successfully blocked by the use of antioxidants.
Complementary and Alternative Treatments for Alopecia: A Comprehensive Review
TLDR
A comprehensive review of the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of CAM, including natural products and mind and body practices, in the treatment of hair loss suggests there is a need for additional studies investigating CAM for alopecia with more robust clinical design and standardized, quantitative outcomes.
Hair Restoration in Androgenetic Alopecia: Looking Beyond Minoxidil, Finasteride and Hair Transplantation
TLDR
The relatively newly understood pathophysiological factors behind the genesis of AGA apart from the hormonal factors like the Wnt/β-catenin pathway, follicular micro-inflammation, prostaglandin imbalance, loss of extracellular matrix and oxidative stress are dwell upon.

Melatonin increases anagen hair rate in women with androgenetic alopecia or diffuse alopecia : results of a pilot randomized controlled trial
Background In addition to the well-known hormonal influences of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone on the hair cycle, melatonin has been reported to have a beneficial effect on hair growth in
Lack of efficacy of finasteride in postmenopausal women with androgenetic alopecia.
TLDR
In postmenopausal women with AGA, finasteride 1 mg/day taken for 12 months did not not increase hair growth or slow the progression of hair thinning.
[Systemic therapy of diffuse effluvium and hair structure damage].
TLDR
Given their good tolerance, no adverse effects were observed with the two active medications and the overall evaluation of efficacy by investigator and patient was in good agreement with these results.

Growth and quality of hair was studied after treatment with Pantogar, another prescription (Verum-2) and placebo for four months in 60 patients with diffuse effluvium capillorum and agnogenic
Melatonin increases anagen hair rate in women with androgenetic alopecia or diffuse alopecia: results of a pilot randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The effect of melatonin on hair growth in humans has not been investigated so far, but the effects of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone on the hair cycle are known to have an important role.
Does tissue iron status have a role in female alopecia?
TLDR
Bath P W A seems to be a highly efficient and well-tolerated regimen in the treatment of LyP, and may be less carcinogenic than oral PUVA.
There is no clear association between low serum ferritin and chronic diffuse telogen hair loss: reply from authors
  • R. Sinclair
  • Medicine
    The British journal of dermatology
  • 2002
TLDR
The usefulness of serum ferritin in the routine investigation of women with chronic diffuse telogen hair loss is unclear, as is the role of iron supplementation therapy in the management of hair loss.
[Photographic documentation of the effectiveness of 1 mg. oral finasteride in treatment of androgenic alopecia in the man in routine general practice in Switzerland].
TLDR
A 6-month, prospective, open, multicenter cohort study in 265 men with male pattern hair loss treated with oral finasteride 1 mg/day (Propecia) was conducted in the office of 52 Swiss dermatologists, and the office-based Polaroid photographic system allowed reliable assessment of change during treatment of male patternhair loss with Propecia.
Quantitating hair loss in women: a critical approach.
TLDR
Subjects complaining of hair loss proved to shed a higher number of hairs than those with various degrees of baldness, suggesting the PT is a poorly sensitive method, while telogen percentage is not correlated with the severity ofhair loss.
Biochemical and trichological characterization of diffuse alopecia in women
TLDR
It is proposed that diffuse androgen‐dependent alopecia is the appropriate name to describe this condition in these women, and hair changes were similar to those observed in genetic hair loss in men, a proven androgendependent condition.
