TLDR Topical minoxidil helps treat female pattern hair loss, but more research needed for other treatments.
The study concluded that, despite some studies having a high risk of bias, there is moderate to low quality evidence supporting the efficacy and safety of topical minoxidil in treating female pattern hair loss (FPHL). No significant difference was found between the effects of 2% and 5% minoxidil. The study found finasteride to be no more effective than a placebo, with this conclusion being based on low quality evidence. There were mixed results from studies evaluating laser devices, although some improvement in total hair count from baseline was noted. More high-quality randomized controlled trials are needed for other commonly used treatments such as spironolactone, different dosages of finasteride, dutasteride, cyproterone acetate, and laser-based therapy.View this study on cochranelibrary.com →
