The only clinical studies I've seen on dexpanthenol in regards to hair growth are of poor quality (I've linked them here). Unfortunately, for now, the mainstays are still minoxidil and finasteride. I've asked some folks with biochemistry/hair loss science backgrounds and they're equivocal about it as well:



Both studies used subjective measures (Dermatologic Life Quality Index (DLQI) and a modified hair growth questionnaire) to gauge success, which isn't useful. They should have used objective measures such as measuring improvements or lack thereof in terms of hair density. It could be promising, but they need better methodology to gauge actual effectiveness.
