Results of phytochemical screening showed the ethanol extract of the roots of pakis munding tannin containing secondary metabolites compounds, polyphenols, flavonoid, steroids, triterpenoids, quinones, monoterpenoid and sesquiterpenoids. Hair growth activity test results use modified Tanaka method showed that the ethanol extract and water extract with a concentration of 40%, 20%, 10% can significantly nourish hair by testing for 18 days. The ethanol extract with a concentration of 40%, 20% and 10% and water extract with levels of 40% and 20% showed better results than the positive control is a drug that has been marketed minoxidil. Ethanol extract and water extract with the levels of 40% showed the best results cope with minoxidil.
