    TLDR Minoxidil improves quality of life for women with hair loss.
    The study aimed to assess the quality of life (QoL) of female patients with female pattern hair loss (FPHL) and determine the effectiveness of topical minoxidil treatment in improving their QoL. The QoL of the patients was severely impaired by FPHL, and the results of the study demonstrated that topical minoxidil improved the QoL of the patients. The study found that there was a correlation between the severity of hair loss and the DLQI score, and that the DLQI and VAS scales were negatively correlated. The study suggests that FPHL impairs the QoL of female patients to the same extent as certain lifelong skin disorders such as psoriasis, and that topical minoxidil treatment can improve the QoL of FPHL patients.
