How DHT Blocking Shampoo Works :
The Phases of Hair Growth
To understand male pattern baldness, we need to understand hair growth. The following is a brief summary of normal hair growth.
Hair growth is split into three phases: anagen, catagen and telogen:
Anagen: the growth phase. Hairs remain in this phase for 2-6 years. The longer this phase lasts, the longer the hair grows. Normally around 85% of the hairs on the head are in this phase
Catagen: this phase lasts only 2 weeks and allows the follicle to renew itself
Telogen: this is the resting phase where the follicle lies dormant and can last from 1-4 months. Normally 10-15% of hairs are in this phase. Once this phase is over and anagen begins again, the existing hair is pushed out of the pore by the new growth and naturally sheds.
In male pattern baldness, follicles slowly become miniaturized and the anagen phase of the hairs is reduced. Due to the shortened growing phase, the hair’s maximum length is reduced. At the same time, the telogen phase lengthens. This cycle slowly becomes more and more weighted toward the telogen phase. Over time, the anagen phase becomes so short that the new hairs do not even peek through the surface of the skin.
Miniaturization of the follicles causes the shaft of the hair to become thinner and thinner with each cycle of growth. Eventually, normal (terminal) hairs are reduced to villus hairs.
Here are some key points about dihydrotestosterone (DHT):
• Testosterone is turned into DHT by enzymes.
• DHT is five times more potent than testosterone.
• More than half of men are likely to experience male pattern baldness mediated by DHT.
• DHT is an androgen and helps give males their male characteristics.
• There is no known role of DHT in female development.
• DHT causes hair follicles to miniaturize.
Androgens are responsible for the biological characteristics that typify males – deep voices, hairy chests and increased muscle mass, for example.
Testosterone is converted to DHT by specific enzymes. Roughly 5% of free testosterone is normally converted into DHT. DHT is a particularly potent androgen, five times more potent than testosterone. It attaches to the same sites as testosterone but with more ease and remains bound for longer periods of time.
Zinc PCA offers several advantages for hair loss or chronically oily scalp and hair. Zinc PCA helps regulate the sebaceous glands that secrete sebum (oil) on our skin and scalp. Equally effective, Zinc PCA also helps block DHT, the primary cause of hair loss in men and women.
This DHT shampoo will improve your overall scalp while helping encourage new hair growth in the process.
