What Can We Do for Female Hair Loss?

It’s frustrating to try and find decent studies for female hair loss. Because it tends to not be only partial rather than complete, so many more studies are done on males. Here’s the summary: 68% of women on these supplements had hair regrowth compared to 28% in the control group over a period of six months. The supplements were: ” a daily dose of 460 mg fish oil (exact amounts of eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA] were not specified), 460 mg blackcurrant seed oil, 5 mg vitamin E, 30 mg vitamin C, and 1 mg lycopene. ” The underlying issue seems to be a decrease of inflammation.
