I believe Toco8 can improve hair growth... there's a few studies in the "Journal of Dermatology" and other clinical publications testifying for its ability to do so. But what most of us are looking for is hair regrowth or hair loss prevention. That's a TOTALLY different ballgame because it involves hormonal pathways (specifically inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to DHT at scalp 5-ar receptors). It's mainly why women seem to benefit significantly more from these "nutritional" hair supplements. Men's hair loss, or any rate of "pattern balding" is going to DHT/androgen-related 99% of the time. Yup, 99% of the time (source: Dr. Victor Hasson and Dr. Jerry Wong)
"The hair loss usually occurs in one of several specific patterns and hence it has been called male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia. Only about one percent of hair loss is caused by other conditions. These include various nutritional, metababolic and hormone disorders.
Male pattern baldness involves a genetic susceptibility of some of the hair follicles to the hormone dihydrotestosterone, (DHT). This hormone acting over time on these susceptible follicles causes a gradual shrinking, (miniaturization), and finally death of these follicles."
The treatments you should take should focus on inhibit DHT synthesis. Finasteride, Minoxodil w/ 5% azelaic acid and a Ketoconazole Shampoo are my suggestions. I detail my specific suggestions on here - HairLossFromSteroids.com - Products that ACTUALLY Work
I regard (I get lots of emails and PM about it) to be an optional supplement that works to speed hair growth. Test and HGH work are good as anything to grow hair quickly though.My Little Site about Hair Loss & Anabolics-

Thank you for commenting and sharing your opinion. I will say though, that although Finastride would be effective, it's side effects stop me from recommending it to nearly anyone.

Been on a low dose propecia for a year now and no side effects what so ever, all of them are so exaggerated and most are placebo side effects.
2 of my other mates have been on it for over 3 years and no side effects. But it's really up to you, to get your hormones checked and take responsibility for what your taking.
Sorry to hear you have experienced terrible side effects though, have you got your hormones checked?

Absolutely none for what I can see. My libido is bloody good, the only side I got for the first two weeks was a bit "groggy"? But after taking it for so long, your mind just doesn't recognise it. The whole mind placebo thing is more powerful than the actual drug side effects itself

Is that why me and my mates have a high sex drive, been the leanest I have ever been in my life, and made gains at the gym no different than before? And my mates have been on for over 2-3 years, longer than me.
Just because you have read or said that it is important as testosterone after the ages of puberty does not make it true in any terms.
It's millions and millions of people taking propecia for long periods of time with none of these "men issues" and it's up to them to take it or not take it or not. It's a free choice.

2% chance of estrogen imbalances on propecia but people all around the world will pop PH and get gyno? But that's ok, that stuff doesnt "mess" with people's hormones and gets you jacked so...
If propecia is taken right and you get sides, come off. Simple. No one is forcing you to take the stuff, but there is also no need for those small minority of people that get sides to come on the Internet and go on a fear mongering fit.
There are millions of happy people on propecia that never go on hair loss forums or Internet to talk about their positive experiences. Why would they?
