Hair Loss is linked to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT)

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT)

  • DHT is a common factor in both male pattern baldness and hair loss in women, according to the American Hair Loss Association.
  • If DHT attaches to hair follicles for very long, it can trigger receptors to shrink those follicles, which eventually leads to increasingly fine hair and, finally, to hair loss.
  • DHT can also make it take longer for your follicles to grow new hairs once old hairs fall out.
