Sorfora and hair

In a mouse study, the topical application of an extract of Sophora flavescens dried root induced increases in growth factors such as insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) in dermal papillae cells and inhibited type II, 5-alpha-reductase activity. This result suggests that sorphora has potential as a natural hair growth promoter.
