How to reduce DHT on the scalp?

Reducing DHTin the blood causes the chemical message to “stop growing hair” to become weaker to a degree that it will not affect sensitive hair follicles.

The trick to reducing DHT levels is to consume a medication to stop the 5-alpha reductase enzyme from converting testosterone to DHT.

If testosterone is not converted to DHT, the message is not delivered to the cells in the sensitive hair follicles. These hair follicles will then continue to grow new hairs.

There are two types of 5-alpha-reductase that convert testosterone to DHT. While Propecia effectively blocks the type II 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, Dutasteride has been shown to effectively block both type I and type II 5-alpha-reductase.

While Propeciatypically results in a 65-70% reduction in DHT in the blood in men, Dutasteride has been shown to reduce DHT in the blood by 90% or more.

We are optimistic that Dutasteride will work better for women with hereditary hair loss than any other medication currently available – as well as for men who don’t get good results from Propecia.

Side effects of Dutasteride are thought to be similar to Propecia but the dose appropriate for the treatment of genetic hair loss has not been determined, and the side effects are dose-related.
