    TLDR Scutellaria baicalensis extract and baicalin may help prevent hair loss.
    The study found that Scutellaria baicalensis extract and its active compound, baicalin, inhibited the translocation of the androgen receptor (AR) and promoted the proliferation of dermal papilla cells, which are important for hair growth. This suggests that they could be used to prevent and treat androgenetic alopecia.
