    TLDR Finasteride improves hair growth and reduces hirsutism in women, but side effects and optimal dosages need further research.
    This document is a systematic review of studies on the efficacy and use of finasteride in women for various hair-related conditions such as hirsutism, androgenetic alopecia, and frontal fibrosing alopecia. The studies varied in design, dosage, and length of treatment, but overall, finasteride was found to be effective in improving hair growth and reducing hirsutism in women with these conditions. However, caution should be taken due to potential side effects and more research is needed to determine optimal dosages and long-term safety.
