User avatar Hello,
As an alternative/herbal supplement treatment, we have little scientific information about this product. It is not regulated by the FDA so we can't recommend or refute this treatment. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.

There are many hair loss treatments that are scams so be careful. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

If you are suffering from hair loss, you should see a doctor to determine if you have anemia, hormonal deficiency such as thyroid or PCOS or even an autoimmune disorder or chronic illness contributing to the condition, in which case legitimate treatments might be available by prescription. Androgens may be too abundant and there is medication to counteract this condition. It is important to find the cause and treat it appropriately so if you haven't already done so, please get help from a doctor.

Some hair loss can also be helped through your stylist but it is important to be sure you have excluded possible physical conditions that might be underlying. Get a complete workup by a doctor who specializes in female pattern balding.

Best wishes.
