Testosterone and hair loss: myth or truth?

Testosteron und Haarausfall: Mythos oder Wahrheit?

Hair loss is a topic that concerns many people and often leads to uncertainty. A common myth is that testosterone is responsible for hair loss. But what is behind this claim? In this article we want to shed some light on the topic and clarify some of the most frequently asked questions about testosterone and hair loss.

What is testosterone?

Testosterone is a hormone found in both men and women, but is produced in significantly higher amounts in men. It plays a crucial role in the development of male sexual characteristics and influences muscle mass, bone density and red blood cell production.

The Myth: Testosterone causes hair loss

Many people believe that high testosterone levels directly lead to hair loss. However, in fact, this is not entirely correct. The real culprit is a derivative of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is created when testosterone is converted by the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. It is this DHT that attaches to hair follicles and causes them to shrink, ultimately leading to hair loss.

Who is affected?

Genetic predisposition plays a crucial role in how sensitive a person's hair follicles are to DHT. This sensitivity is inherited and is the reason why some men experience hair loss at an early age, while others maintain a full head of hair even in old age.

Are there solutions?

Fortunately, there are various approaches to counteract hair loss:

1. Medications: There are medications such as finasteride that can block the conversion of testosterone to DHT. However, these must be taken regularly and can have side effects.

2. Hair transplant: For many sufferers, a hair transplant represents a permanent solution. Procedures such as FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) have proven themselves and offer natural results.

3. Our products:

The myth that testosterone is directly responsible for hair loss persists, but the truth is more complex. It is the DHT that is produced from testosterone and, in conjunction with genetic predisposition, leads to hair loss. However, there are numerous options for those affected to counteract hair loss and improve their quality of life.
