DHT and Hair Loss
DHT hair loss affects both men and women.
DHT stands for Dihydrotestosterone which is the resulting product of direct contact between the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, found in the skin and the scalp, with the hormone testosterone.
DHT hair loss is caused by the DHT binding to receptor sites on the scalp and hair follicles which interrupts and interacts with the normal chain of events involved in continual healthy hair growth.
To put it another way, DHT hair loss happens when DHT takes over the receptor cell (the cells on the hair follicle that bind to DHT) and sends false signals to the functioning cells responsible for proper hair growth.
Men usually lose hair first in the temporal area, second in the crown, and third, in the vertex or top of the scalp. This is due to the concentration of sweat glands that carry DHT in these areas.
Women on the other hand generally thin in a diffuse manner.
Nisim International, leaders in hair science for over 20 years, produce NewHair Biofactors shampoos which stop DHT hair loss within 1 week guaranteed!
The deep cleansing scalp shampoo removes unwanted oils, sweat, dirt and excess sebum as well as neutralizing surface DHT. The stimulating extracts penetrate further into the scalp to neutralize DHT in the scalp thereby creating a healthy scalp environment needed for hair growth.
Balding is something that happens to most men and some women. While many men adapt to the fact that they are losing their hair, others seek remedies and treatments to help prevent the hair loss and even to replacement procedures.
