    This is interesting because dexpanthenol is an analogue of vitamin b5, which is said to help acne but cause hair loss

    It's also available OTC so should be easy enough to get your hands on to experiment with.

    Some things to note, these people were given weekly injections of 500 mg dexpanthenol, and I'm not sure if you need a special type of dexpanthenol to inject. Also the improvement was assessed by a patient questionnaire and there wasn't any kind of objective analysis done. I'm not sure if this is available OTC in America, but if anyone knows it is then I'm interested to hear about it.

    There are pictures of two patients in the full article.

    You're right about the injection bit. Not sure if the OTC creams are gonna match up if you use them topically.

    Taking Panthetine orally will do the same thing. (Highly absorbable and biologically active form of pantothenic acid ). Precursor of coenzyme A .

    And you think this will work in the same way that dexpanthenol would?

    Yes, Dexpanthenol is an alcohol derivative of pantothenic acid. Pantethine is an active form of Pantothenic Acid. *Pantesin is an highly absorbable form of Pantethine. The problem is how much do you need to take to match the IV injections.

    hair talk will never end, it is like an expanding universe!

    society needs a new business ideology.

    I'm gonna give the Pantethine a shot. If it doesn't do anything for my hair maybe it'll at least do something for my skin. I'm taking 900 mg a day but I might adjust the dose later on. I have a feeling that dosage is very important for this because hair loss is often cited as a side effect of megadosing b5 and yet this study exists suggesting the opposite.

    Take it with L-Cysteine for better results. Mandatory precursors for Coenzyme A.

    I’ll look into the l-cysteine
