Hinoki Cypress Oil for Hair Loss: Increases Scalp IGF-1 and VEGF

I’d never heard of Hinoki Cypress before, but I recently discovered a study that found it significantly increases IGF-1 and VEGF: two growth factors that are closely linked to increased hair growth.

For insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) mRNA expression in the skin tissue, at week 4, the MXD and CO groups showed a significantly higher expression by 204% (p < 0.05) and 426% (p < 0.01) respectively, as compared to the SA group. At week 4, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in the MXD and CO groups showed a significantly higher expression by 74% and 96% (p < 0.05) respectively From: PMC
