    I've seen studies where there was/can be a correlation, but If i'm not mistaken it was at therapeutic doses. I'll try and dig those up. I think those doses would exceed what you would use.

    Hi there,

    Well hair loss may occur through several conditions, however the only form related to testosterone levels is known as androgenetic alopecia.
    It is a hereditary disorder characterized by thinning of scalp hair, androgenetic alopecia occurs in both men and women through an androgen mediated mechanism. While this syndrome is technically a low testosterone state, in fact the body experiences high androgen levels due to the mechanism of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a metabolite of testosterone with potent androgenic effects.

    It won't raise testosterone levels to the point of further aromatizing to cause spikes in DHT. Your hairline will be fine, what might be the goal you are looking into l-dopa for anyway?
