sorry about this. I tried the link and it didn't work for me either, requiring payment, so I retraced my original steps. I found the article referenced in a monthly email I get Dermatology Practice Update. I clicked on the link, got to the Wiley site and then was able to click through to the article which I can't seem to copy and paste. Here is the first link I used. Tell me if that doesn't work and I will email the author to try to get it!!

It's a 12 page article - too many pages to do screenshots. The oral supplements that they conclude have some positive effect on human hair growth are Vitamin E, possibly zinc, possibly iron, and horsetail, MSM, AminoMar marine complex, possiblySynergen complex, and possibly Nourkrin. Some other supplements have limited benefit with specific hair loss conditions only.

Here are the two pages that cover their summary conclusions:
