    TLDR Minoxidil effectively treats female pattern hair loss.
    The document is a review of interventions for female pattern hair loss (FPHL) and includes information from several studies. The review found that minoxidil is effective in treating FPHL, but there is not enough evidence to support the effectiveness or safety of other interventions. The document recommends investigating other potential causes of hair loss and considering telogen effluvium as a possible diagnosis for FPHL. The document emphasizes the need for standardized scales to assess treatment efficacy and quality of life in future trials for FPHL interventions. The review concludes that minoxidil is the only effective intervention for FPHL.
