Many factors can led to pathologically increased hair loss. The pathologic dynamics of hair loss can be related to disorders of hair cycling. Management of diffuse hair loss depends on the causes and underlying pathomechanism in its relation to the hair growth cycle. Once the diagnosis is established, treatment appropriate for that diagnosis is likely to control the hair loss. The aim of the paper has been to study, during a period of 3 months, the efficacy and the tolerability of the shampoo-cream (Mellis Beta) in subjects with hair loss. All the subjects underwent pull test, wash test, evaluation of symptoms (dandruff, pruritus, trichodynia). Tolerability and cosmetic tolerance were evaluated at the beginning of the treatment and after 30 and 90 days. In the patients the improvement of pull test has been continuous becoming negative in studied population after 90 days. Symptomes decreased in all patients. The cosmetic tolerance was also referred as positive in 100% of the cases. In summary the results of this study demonstrate that the shampoo is effective in the clinical and therapeutic management of patients with hair loss.
