Effect of DHT and hormone imbalance on the hair cycle:


Hair in our scalp are regularly grown and replaced by a constant hair cycle of activity and rest. A typical hair undergoes three growth phases:

1.        The first growth phase lasts for two to four years producing well-pigmented, thick hair. At any given time, up to 90% of hairs on the scalp are in this first growth phase.

2.       The second growth phase is a transient phase that lasts for a few weeks. The hair starts to become thinner and the follicle starts to shrink in preparation to shed the hair.

3.       The third growth phase lasts for two to four months. The thinned hair falls out making way for new hair. DHT has been shown to block new hair growth, causing hair loss. DHT and possible hormone imbalances cause hair follicles to shrink so that hair re-growth is limited and weak or may not occur.


What causes hair loss?
Hair loss, or alopecia, is a common disorder that can be caused by many different factors. Hair has three phases of growth and rest. The growth phase is called the anagen phase, up to 80% of the scalp hair is in this phase at any point of time. 20% of the hair is in the sleeping phase, which is referred to as the telogen phase. It has been estimated that the scalp normally contains about 100,000 hairs and the average number of hairs that can be lost in one day is about 100. The third phase is when your follicles shrink, hair thins and weakens and is eventually shed. Excessive hair loss can be caused by many different factors, everyone is different and the causes of hair loss varies from individual to individual. There can be hair loss in a coin-sized area at the top, or crown of your head. You may experience temporary hair loss due to stress or external factors that negatively impact your system. Or you may have hereditary male-pattern baldness. The most common cause for hair loss, male pattern baldness, can affect men as early as their late teens by gradual loss of hair. The loss of hair is usually on the top of the head (the crown) and at the hairline that frames the face. It is thought to be due to an imbalance of male hormones (such as excessive DHT) combined with genetic factors.

Does excessive stress cause hair loss?
Normal amounts of stress does not cause hair loss, but excessive amounts of stress may aggravate the condition.

How does DHT cause hair loss?
DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is an active form of the male hormone testosterone. Studies suggest that DHT levels can harm hair follicles in a genetically predisposed man, eventually causing baldness. The chemical conversion of testosterone to DHT, if blocked, can prevent hair loss. Natural hair replacement blocks the chemical reaction that converts testosterone into DHT, thereby making the hair follicles active again and able to grow strong hair.

Do genetics cause hair loss?
Genetics is not the primary cause of male-pattern baldness. Genetics does play a significant role in male-pattern baldness.

Can young adults experience hair loss?
Male-pattern baldness can affect men as early as 16 years of age. Hair loss in young adults may be due to genetic factors. Most men start to notice some hair loss in their twenties and thirties. The amount varies from person to person.

What can cause of a sudden loss of a large mass of hair?
Sudden loss of large mass of hair can be due to stress caused by illness, high fever, extreme weight loss or gain, and drug use; however, it is temporary and reversible. This happens when the hair cycle is disrupted and more hair shifts to the resting phase. This type of hair loss is temporary and complete re-growth should be expected.

Does Natural hair replacement have any negative side effects?
No. Because Natural hair replacement is all natural, it does not have any known negative side effects. You may experience tingling of the scalp or increased sensitivity of the scalp with the first 2 weeks of use. This is normal and indicates Natural hair replacement is working.

Is there anything I can do to help or speed up the hair growth process?
Yes. It is best to limit your exposure of sunlight to the scalp by wearing a hat or sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. It is also best to limit or quit smoking because nicotine restricts blood vessels and, therefore, blood flow to the scalp.

Do shampoos and hair products (gels, mousse, sprays) cause hair loss?
Some hair products contain strong chemicals and may cause an allergic reaction which can trigger hair loss. Shampoos are designed to be as safe as possible. However, sensitivity of the scalp and hair follicles differs from person to person. Hair dyes, bleaches, straighteners, and other products can certainly cause inflammation of the scalp and weaken hair which results in hair loss.

How much hair growth can I expect?
Everyone responds at their own rate to Natural hair replacement. Some men will experience new hair growth within 30 days, while it might take up to 90 days for some men to see results. The growth rate for new and existing hair will increase by up to 1/2 an inch per month.

Can certain hairstyles cause hair loss?
Certain hairstyles can contribute to hair loss, especially styles involving tight braids or pull-backs. This form of hair loss is called traction alopecia. This occurs when the hair is pulled tightly back or braided into tight braids or rows. Exposure to this type of hairstyle over long periods of time can result in a scarring alopecia, with minimal potential for re-growth.
