Let's talk about what is happening with premature hair loss. Male pattern balding, also called androgenic alopecia, is one of the most common reasons that men lose hair as they get older. Women can also experience this type of hair loss, but it’s much less common. About 30 million women in the United States have this type of hair loss compared to 50 million men.
DHT is derived from testosterone. Testosterone is a hormone that’s present in both men and women. It and DHT are androgens, or hormones.
As you get older, testosterone and DHT have many other benefits to your body, such as maintaining your overall muscle mass and promoting sexual health and fertility. Men typically have more testosterone present in their bodies. About 10 percent of testosterone in all adults is converted to DHT with the help of an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase (5-AR).
Once it’s freely flowing through your bloodstream, DHT can then link to receptors on hair follicles in your scalp, causing them to shrink and become less capable of supporting a healthy head of hair.
DHT’s potential to cause harm goes beyond your hair. Research has linked DHT, especially abnormally high levels of it, to:
slow healing of skin after an injury
coronary heart disease
Hair everywhere on your body grows out of structures underneath your skin known as follicles, which are essentially tiny capsules that each contain a single strand of hair. The hair within a follicle typically goes through a growth cycle that lasts about two to six years. Even if you shave or cut your hair, the same hair will grow back out of the follicle from the root of the hair contained within the follicle.
At the end of this cycle, the hair enters what’s known as a resting phase before finally falling out a few months later. Then, the follicle produces a new hair, and the cycle begins again.
High levels of androgens, including DHT, can shrink your hair follicles as well as shorten this cycle, causing hair to grow out looking thinner and more brittle, as well as fall out faster. DHT can also make it take longer for your follicles to grow new hairs once old hairs fall out.
Some people are more susceptible to these effects of DHT on scalp hair based on variations in their androgen receptor (AR) gene. Androgen receptors are proteins that allow hormones like testosterone and DHT to bind to them. This binding activity typically results in normal hormonal processes like body hair growth.
Variations in the AR gene can increase androgen receptivity in your scalp follicles, making you more likely to experience male pattern hair loss. OWAY Nocturnal Hair Remedy can help you while you sleep using this special formula. Plant Stem Cells from Basil inhibit the production of 5-alpha reductase—the enzyme responsible for the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Excess DHT is known to be one of the most common causes of men's hair loss. Helping to strengthen and retain healthy follicles and bulbs. Enjoy healthy hair, Laura
