Why Use A DHT Blocker?

Updated on September 18, 2010

One question that a lot of people wonder is why it is so important to use a DHT blocker. There has been a lot of talk about it lately and it is good to know why people use a DHT blocker and what it can do for you.

What Is DHT?

DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) actually has a role in hair loss, which is why DHT blockers are considered to have such importance. Men and women both can start to lose hair and go balding when they are older in age. This is often due to hormonal imbalances in the body and in particular androgen. When androgen is involved with an enzyme, this creates DHT and this is the main cause of hair loss among men and women.

DHT Blocker Products

The purpose of DHT blocker products then, is to help stop this hormone from causing damage and causing hair loss. These products are specially designed to help provide the hair and scalp with nutrition and prevent hair loss. It provides proteins, vitamins and minerals to the hair and keeps the hair on your head and prevents it from falling off not only now, but in the future as well. The longer you continue to use these DHT blocker products, the better results you get in the long run. DHT products can be used in addition to vitamins for hair loss in women and men.

There are many different options when it comes to DHT products you can use. The DHT blocker shampoo is one of your best options. A DHT shampoo is easy to use, you simply replace your regular shampoo with the DHT blocking shampoo and it helps provide DHT and help with a hair loss problem. The added benefit of the DHT products is that they create a wax like substance around the hair roots that is partially responsible for hair loss and the DHT products remove this wax and clean the scalp off so you are less likely to experience hair loss.

When Should I Use a DHT Blocker?

Some people start using the DHT shampoos and other products even before they start balding. It is a great preventative way to avoid even having to deal with the situation at all. You can shop at your local drugstore for them or head online to find an even better selection. Make sure you read the ingredients on the label of any product before buying it. Try to find one that contains a lot of natural ingredients. Too many chemicals can actually weigh the hair follicles down and if you already have fine or thinning hair, this is the last thing that you need.

If you are still not sure, you can talk to your doctor to get a professional opinion from them. They can do a personal assessment on you, figure out what any causes of your hair loss problem are and help you find the best solution. No one wants to lose their hair and go bald and now you do not have to. Be sure to follow the instructions on the product and do not overuse it because this can be dangerous. Only use it the recommended amount of time to ensure you get the best results.
