False daisy, hibiscus and giant dodder may stop alopecia » TechnoCodex

Giant dodder — a sprawling, Ayurvedic plant — has been shown to help treat alopecia.

According to one study, giant dodder treated alopecia caused by steroid hormones by inhibiting the 5a reductase enzyme.

The 5-alpha-reductase (5-AR) enzyme converts testosterone into DHT – a major driver of hair loss.

If 5-AR levels increase, more testosterone will be converted into DHT, and greater hair loss will result.
