Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Decrease of hair loss in a pull test and thickening of hair on a polarized light video-camera as a measure of Efficacy [ Time Frame: 90 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Measurement of the decrease of hair loss by pull test and pulling some hair with the fingers and of the thickening of hair with the polarized light video-camera.

    Measurements estimated and reported every 15 days.
