    How can Pregnenolone cause Hair loss?

    Ive seen several people in this forum saying that pregnenolone causes them to lose hair. Charlie says so as well. Shouldn't increased metabolism reduce or even reverse hair loss? And shouldn't pregnenolone fix the hormone imbalance many claim is the cause of hair loss? I don't understand this.

    How prolactin causes hair loss

    The hair seems to be a target AND source of prolactin, this is what the researchers found in this study. They also showed that increasing prolactin in the hair follicle basically kills the hair follicle by removing it from the blood supply (a.k.a catagen phase). In my opinion prolactin is a...
