Scientists have discovered caffeine stimulates the growth
of tiny follicles in the scalp in men who are starting to lose
their hair. But drinking 60 cups a day of coffee to reach
the significant amount of caffeine at follicles in the scalp
may not be the best answer. Alpecin, a German cosmetic
firm, has developed a caffeine-rich solution that may help
hair growth by rubbing it on the scalp.  [1]

Researchers believe that high levels of testosterone will
lead to high levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Too
much DHT shrinks the follicles, the hair becomes thinner
and grows for less time than normal. This results in hair
loss or baldness. [1]Dr. Fischer TW and co-workers from
Friedrich-Schiller-University, Germany. cultivated hair
follicles from male androgenetic alopecia patients for
120-192 h in vitro containing different concentrations of
testosterone and/or caffeine. They found growth
suppression in hair follicles treated with 5 microg/ml
testosterone, while this growth suppression was
counteracted by caffeine. And, treatment of these follicles
with caffeine alone led to a significant stimulation of hair
follicle growth. [2]

Note more studies are needed to confirm the results. Side
effects of applying caffeine on skin are not known. This article is
