What Causes Hair Loss?
The primary reason for hair loss in men and women is a condition called Androgenic Alopecia which accounts for approximately 95% of all hair loss.
Over 70% of men and 40% of women will experience this hormonal form of hair loss.
Scientists have identified the hormone called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – a derivative of testosterone – as the main culprit in causing hair loss.
DHT binds to receptors within the hair follicle which blocks the follicle and creates shrinkage of the hair shaft and inhibits healthy hair growth.
