Stopping DHT In Its Tracks

Losing your hair? Meet DHT. Actually you’ve already met DHT. DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is the leading cause for hair loss in men. This little hormone can cause a huge amount of problem for a man who loves his hair, and is, in general, the culprit for men around the world losing their hair. But what is DHT, and is there any way that you can stop it from causing male hair loss?


DHT is a hormone that occurs when the alpha-5 reductase enzyme meets testosterone. Testosterone is responsible for helping the body to look male. It is the testosterone hormone, when introduced into the egg, that causes a boy to emerge from his mother’s uterus instead of a girl. As a man grows older, testosterone starts to change and to act different. When testosterone is transformed into DHT, a man is very likely to lose his hair. The DHT settles into the hair follicles, usually at the temple or at the crown of the head first, and causes the hair follicles to shrink and to stop producing hair. Once there is no more hair produced, there is nothing to replace the hair that falls out, a condition that occurs naturally. But what are you to do if you have a family history of DHT and you do not want to lose your hair?

Fighting Back

The first thing you need to do is to use some form of male hair loss treatment to block the DHT. There are a number of options available to those who are looking to stop the DHT in its tracks. The first type that many men are likely to look to is the natural method. There are a number of natural DHT blockers that are created using vitamins and minerals that are found naturally in nature. These blockers are designed to stop the DHT from causing problems in the scalp. Many of them also include ingredients which are there to help a man to grow his hair back faster than he would grow it back if he were to allow it to grow on its own.

There are also pharmaceutical means to help a man who is looking to stop male hair loss. These methods are usually prescribed by physicians and work much in the same way that the natural methods do, by blocking the DHT from causing problems. Not many of them, however, include a hair stimulant to help a man to grow his hair back faster.

If you’re worried that you will be plagued with DHT like your ancestors have been, you need to take an offensive position. Fight back against the DHT before it becomes a problem and you will never have to worry about losing your hair.
