Red Clover (Trifolium Pratense) for Hair Loss: How it Works and How to Use It

Red Clover extract may reduce hair loss when applied to the scalp due to its anti-inflammatory properties. At least one study has shown positive results on micro-inflammation in the dermal papillae.

Microinflammation in the vicinity of the dermal papilla appears to precipitate or at least contribute to male pattern alopecia. To mimic inflammatory events that may prevail in this context, NHDFs were stimulated with IL-1α in the presence or absence of red clover extract alone, or a mixture of red clover extract and acetyl tetrapeptide-3, at two different concentrations (0.5% and 1%). DMS, a glucocorticoid with anti-inflammatory properties, served as positive control for inhibition of IL-8 secretion.
