    TLDR Natural products like saw palmetto, caffeine, melatonin, marine extracts, rosemary oil, procyanidin, pumpkin seed oil, and cannabidiol oil could potentially treat male hair loss.
    The review article "Natural products for male androgenetic alopecia" discusses the potential of natural products in treating male androgenetic alopecia (AGA), the most common cause of hair loss in men. The authors conducted a systematic search of various databases and selected 11 clinical studies for detailed review. The conventional treatments for AGA, topical minoxidil and oral finasteride, have limitations such as long-term application and potential side effects. As a result, natural products may serve as alternatives or supplements to these treatments. The reviewed studies suggest that saw palmetto, caffeine, melatonin, marine extracts, rosemary oil, procyanidin, pumpkin seed oil, and cannabidiol oil could be considered in the treatment of male AGA.
