In brief: Maybe

Platelet rich plasma is thought to have growth factors and cytokines that rejuvenate skin and perhaps hair follicles and matrix.
As mono therapy it probably isn't so great but it may help hair transplantation Propecia (finasteride) or Minoxidil work better.

PRP is a relatively new treatment for hair loss which is showing good promise and substantial results in many reports.

Scientific HairCheck measurements can track the results.
