If you are looking for an answer to hair loss, you will probably already have encountered lots of different and conflicting information about what is the best way to treat it. There are many different ways of approaching hair loss treatment, but one option which can be bought over the counter and without prescription is with a DHT Blocker Shampoo. In this article, we explore what DHT is, how the DHT Blocker Shampoo works and whether it is the answer to hair loss.
Both men and women can suffer from hair loss. It can be a distressing situation when you first look in the mirror and realize your hair is becoming fine and/or patchy.
Many hair loss sufferers try to cover up the problem by wearing a hat or headscarf, or disguise it with a wig or a spray on dye. These methods are quite unsatisfactory, therefore it is better to look for a more permanent and effective solution.
Many years of scientific research have gone into discovering exactly what causes hair loss, and why some people suffer with this problem more than others. As well as stress levels, diet, hereditary (genetic) factors and skin complaints, DHT has been found to be to blame for up to 95% of all hair problems.
DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) is an androgen, and is produced when an enzyme called 5Alpha Reductase metabolises testosterone. Men are more likely to suffer with hair loss problems caused by high levels of DHT although it can occur in women as well. Women suffering from DHT related hair loss issues may also experience secondary problems relating to high levels of the male hormone in the body including developing facial hair and a deeper voice.
DHT attaches to the hair follicles which it prevents the absorption of the nutrients hair needs to grow strong, such as proteins, vitamins and minerals. DHT also causes the hair follicles to shrink in a process known as miniaturisation. Over time this causes the hair to become weaker and fall out at the root. Often people suffering from hair loss don’t even notice until bald patches appear. Most commonly, hair loss caused by DHT is seen at the temples and crown of the head.
