DHT and Hair Loss: A Deeper Insight and Natural Support Options
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is an androgenic hormone converted from testosterone and plays a crucial role in androgenetic hair loss. DHT binds to the androgen receptors of hair follicles and can cause them to shrink, resulting in a shortened growth phase and a longer resting phase. Over time, the follicles can become so small that they can no longer produce hair.
Hair loss can occur at different stages of life, often starting in the 20s or 30s and can continue for many years. The duration and severity of hair loss can vary greatly from person to person.
There are medical treatments to lower DHT levels, such as finasteride, but these can be associated with side effects such as reduced sex drive. Another common treatment is minoxidil, which does not affect DHT production but stimulates hair follicles to promote hair growth.
For those looking for more natural alternatives, the KÖ-HAIR Loading capsules may be worth considering. They contain natural ingredients that can play a supportive role in hair follicle health without the harsh chemistry of medical treatments. The KÖ-HAIR Redensyl Shampoo also offers a gentle, chemical-free option to promote hair health
