90 % Of All Hair Loss In Both Men And Women Is DHT Related
DHT hair loss – or male and female pattern baldness is a complicated process, but here are the basics… We have many hormones in our bodies, but when they are balanced they keep our bodies and our hair healthy. One of the most important hormones is Testosterone. While it is considered a men’s hormone, both men and women need it to grow and heal bones and muscles. We also have enzymes in our bodies which transform and optimize hormones. One specific enzyme, 5-Alpha Reductase (5AR), rests in the tissue around your hair follicles and has only one purpose. It turns Testosterone into a super concentrated, super strong Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Normally men have a tiny amount of DHT which is more than enough to grow facial hair, deepen the voice, and increase sex drive. If you are losing your hair, it means something has gone terribly wrong and you have a DHT problem. For many reasons, your body is making too much 5AR and too much Testosterone. Your body is storing the excess Testosterone on your 5AR-filled scalp. When the two meet, your scalp is flooded with DHT.
This excess DHT on your scalp causes your hair follicles to swell (just like your body would swell as a reaction to a bee sting or a twisted ankle). This swelling puts pressure on your hair follicle and overtime it slowly begins to choke it out. The swelling caused by DHT reduces blood flow and restricts your follicleâ€™s access to proteins, enzymes and hormones that are essential to healthy hair. As this swelling continues, your hair follicles will become sicker and weaker and your hair begins to grow-in thinner and finer... all the while your follicle is exerting more and more energy to produce these smaller, thinner hairs. Eventually, the hair follicle simply cannot survive. It shrinks into nothingness and dies. So... how can you over-come this process and re-gain the healthy, active hair follicles you need to grow full, thick hair? Well, you arenâ€™t left with a lot of options...
