What Is DHT & What Is Its Role In Hair Loss?

Posted by DHI Australia on July 20, 2018

You may already know that DHT plays a role in hair loss, but what exactly is it? DHT stands for dihydrotestosterone and it is an androgen, or hormone, responsible for giving men their male characteristics, such as body hair, increased muscle mass and deeper voice. The 5a-reductase enzyme synthesises DHT from testosterone in areas such as the prostate and hair follicles. DHT is considered to be a contributor to male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia as it is thought to cause hair follicles to miniaturise.

Treatments that block DHT may be able to prevent hair loss. For those already suffering from hair loss, a hairline redesign or hair transplant could be an option for a permanent solution rather than prevention.

Given the potential for severe psychological distress caused by baldness, more, but most importantly safe, hair loss solutions are needed.

With today’s increasingly significant emphasis on health and natural solutions, taking hair loss medications or a daily hair loss prevention routine may not be suitable for everyone. We explain the similarities and differences between Ashley & Martin (A&M) and DHI hair loss prevention and solutions.
