DHT FAQ's

Male pattern hair loss is caused by a bi-product of testosterone called DHT. At some point in most men’s lives, DHT starts to shrink hair follicles, which eventually die off one by one, leading to progressive hair loss.



What is DHT?

DHT, short for dihydrotestosterone, is a naturally produced male androgen hormone that is one of the key causes of hair loss in men. DHT itself is one of the hormones that contributes to male characteristics, such as a deeper voice and facial hair. While DHT promotes the growth of hair in other parts of the body, an overproduction of the hormone can have a destructive impact on the hair on your head.

How do I reduce DHT?

While reducing DHT levels in your body is difficult, medications such as Finasteride and Minoxidil have been proven to inhibit and block the hormone. More specifically, Finasteride works by binding to the receptors of your hair follicles, stopping them from shrinking. Minoxidil is a vasodilator, which helps to widen the blood vessels in your scalp, which supplies more blood to your follicles. When used together, Finasteride and Minoxidil can drastically lower the effects of DHT on your hair.

What is a DHT blocker?

A DHT blocker is a medication or compound that blocks or inhibits the hormone DHT, an overproduction of which can have adverse effects on male hair. Formulated with saw palmetto, our DHT blocker shampoo is one of a few proven compounds that can reduce the amount of DHT in the scalp. Along with saw palmetto, DHT blocker shampoo also includes argan oil, iron and vitamin B3.

What causes DHT to increase?

As DHT is a by-product of testosterone, DHT levels increase when male testosterone levels increase. Ultimately, the science is still out on the connections between DHT production and various types of food, but those with higher DHT levels can often point to genetic reasons. To help lower the effects, our DHT blocker shampoo, along with our other medications, is an ideal choice.

Why does DHT do?

DHT is responsible for many different male characteristics, including a deepened voice and increased muscle mass. The hormone can also have a big impact on your hair, with overproduction causing damage to your hair follicles. While DHT can damage your hair, you can still take action to stop it. Our DHT blocker shampoo contains saw palmetto, which helps to reduce the levels of DHT that are present in the scalp.

Do DHT-blocking shampoos really work?

While every man is different, DHT blocker shampoos have been shown to have a positive impact on your hairline and can be effective at stopping DHT’s effects. As with all our medications, using DHT blocker shampoo alongside our other supplements will only help to boost the effects. Check out our full works plan to give your hair the best chance of thriving.

How do I naturally decrease DHT levels?

Many of the natural methods of decreasing DHT have not been medically proven to work, but may help to boost the results of our medications. Foods rich in lycopene, such as carrots, mangoes and watermelons, and biotin-rich foods, like bananas and berries, may have an impact on the hormone DHT. DItching bad habits, such as smoking or a lack of exercise, will have a positive impact too, giving your body the perfect foundation to improve.

Are DHT blockers bad for you?

Every man is different, and can therefore react to medications in entirely different ways. However, our DHT blocker shampoo uses natural ingredients to give you the highest quality DHT blocker out there. The shampoo contains saw palmetto, an ingredient proven to reduce the levels of DHT in the scalp and lower the effects of hair loss. Saw palmetto is entirely natural and doesn’t contain any nasty added chemicals often found in other DHT blockers.

Does Minoxidil block DHT?

No - Minoxidil doesn’t block DHT directly but has been medically proven to have an impact on your hair loss. While Minoxidil may not block DHT, the solution does open up the blood vessels in your scalp, making more nutrients and oxygen available to your hair follicles. When used alongside FInasteride, the effects of DHT could be lowered drastically.

What does DHT do to hair?

DHT is an androgen hormone that plays a pivotal role in the male hair loss process. An overproduction of the hormone leads to malnourished and unhealthy follicles in the scalp, which disrupts the hair cycle. While DHT is important for other aspects of male development, there are still ways to stop the effects of the hormone. Finasteride and Minoxidil can work together to inhibit DHT and improve the health of hair follicles. Meanwhile, consistent use of our DHT blocker shampoo could also have a big impact on the effects of DHT.

Can DHT blockers regrow hair?

As the name suggests, DHT blockers block the effects of the hormone DHT, without having a direct impact on the state of your hair. An overproduction of DHT can have a big impact on your hair and results in malnourished and unhealthy hair follicles. While our DHT blocker shampoo doesn’t regrow the hair you’ve lost, it can help to save the follicles you have left.

Does Biotin block DHT?

No, Biotin does not block DHT. However, it can be used in conjunction with other medications, such as Finasteride and Minoxidil, to mitigate the effects that the hormone can cause on hair follicles. Biotin itself is a vitamin B supplement that, when taking consistently, can help to promote healthy and strong hair. While this doesn’t stop your hair loss, it strengthens the hair you already have.
