If anyone suffers from hair loss, it can be devastating. Understanding the available causes and solutions is the key to holding hair, thick, full, healthy hair, and boosting your self-esteem. Hair Restoration laboratories have developed research and products to combat hair fall and thinning. This article will help you to understand what they found and how they can help you slow or reverse your hair loss.
DHT is the leading culprit in the fight against hair loss, but what is DHT? What role does it play, and what can you do about it?
Male and Female Pattern Baldness & DHT
Dihydrotestosterone is a byproduct of testosterone in the body. The body converts some of the testosterone in the body into DHT, which can affect the function of the hair follicle. Over time, excess DHT impedes the hair growth within the follicle causing slower growth, thinner strands when the follicle produces hair and eventually blocks growth altogether.
Approximately 10% of testosterone in the body is converted into DHT and further explains why women also experience pattern baldness and severe hair thinning (although DHEA, which is a hormone found in women, can also convert to DHT).
DHT is an androgen that binds to the androgen receptors (AR’s) in your body, which vary from person to person. There are also individual-level variances in the enzyme that convert the testosterone into DHT. Thus, the amount of testosterone hormone in the body is not necessarily an indicator of DHT levels. Every individual’s conversion rate is different due to the differences in AR receptors and conversion enzymes, so even though high levels of testosterone may not be present, there may be higher levels of the enzyme that convert it, causing a higher DHT level within the body.
So what do we do about it?
Science has proven that you can slow and even reverse hair thinning and loss by using products that block the DHT. Research shows that the use of certain non-prescription, DHT blocking ingredients, you will see results. By using DHT-blocking shampoo, conditioners, and styling treatments and removing the existing DHT from the scalp surface, you will see thicker, fuller, healthier-looking hair.
Hair Restoration Laboratories uses their scientific research and unique blend of DHT halting technology to rid the scalp of buildup, reduce hair loss, promote new hair growth, and give you the results as you are looking.
