Is there treatment for hypotrichosis simplex? Is there hope for hair growth in the future?

Individuals with hypotrichosis simplex experience a gradual loss of scalp hair that begins during the middle of the first decade and results in almost complete loss of hair by the third decade. A few sparse, fine, short hairs may remain in some individuals.[1] There is currently no treatment for hypotrichosis simplex.[2]
