Hair Loss in Men due to DHT
Hair loss is one problem that men have to face when they come of age. Androgenetic alopecia or “male pattern baldness” is the most common type of hair loss. It is a genetic problem and it is carried by both parents. That’s why almost all men are affected by it. This is an inevitable occurrence, if you see your father suffering from hair loss, then most likely you will be experiencing the same fate.
But don’t worry, understanding the outlook of your hair has its benefits. Investing in a good quality hair loss treatment and using it early – before hair loss starts – this is one way to prevent this unwanted condition You see, androgenetic alopecia is due to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This hormone somehow hardens or stiffens the skin of the scalp, shrinking the blood vessels supplying the hair follicles.
Hair follicles are one of the fastest growing cells in the body and they need regular nourishment and of course, a good blood supply to continually produce hair. But due of the effects of DHT, the hair follicles slowly fail to produce terminal hair. What is left are just thin transparent hairs called “fuzz hair”. In worst cases the hair follicles somewhat enter a dormant state and totally won’t produce any hair.
The odd part of all of these scalp changes is that DHT is formed at the hair follicles. DHT is an active metabolite of the male hormone testosterone. When testosterone interacts with the enzyme 5 alpha reductase, DHT is formed and all this occurs underneath the skin – the hair follicles to be specific.
The simplest way to stop hair loss is to stop the ill effects of DHT on the scalp. Using an herbal based hair loss treatment like Nisim Shampoo is preferred over any other treatment.
Why an herbal shampoo?
Because hair loss is a lifetime treatment and the advantages of using herbal medications is that there are no side effects, it’s just like eating broccoli. The longer you use Nisim shampoo your hair will grow healthier, better, livelier and most of all, thicker preventing any kind of hair loss.
