For many men, hair loss is inevitable. Age and genetics can play a huge role in the thinning and lightening of hair, along with other factors like stress, a bad diet, and medical conditions. But what most men don’t realize, is that the reality of hair loss, lies in hormones. Specifically dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a male steroid hormone that binds to receptors in your scalp, causing those that are genetically susceptible to lose their hair.

More than half of men are likely to experience male pattern baldness caused by DHT, so it’s important to understand exactly what this hormone is, and how to block it.

What is DHT

DHT isn’t a synthetic steroid, but one your body produces on it’s own, affecting your hair follicles in a way you won’t like. It’s an androgen produced as a byproduct of testosterone, and is fairly important. DHT is responsible for making men, well, men, but differs from other male sex hormones, such as testosterone, in several ways.

Your body produces an enzyme that converts a certain percentage of testosterone into DHT in tissue such as prostate, skin, liver, and hair follicles. When a man is genetically susceptible to hair loss, DHT can be quite a nuisance, binding to the receptors in hair follicles, causing them to shrink, weaken, and eventually die. This can lead to a complete and total end of hair growth in the affected follicles.

But what is most intriguing about this powerful hormone, is that it is important for hair growth on your chest, back, and other areas. So the same hormone that is responsible for male pattern baldness, is absolutely vital for the rest of your body.

Blocking DHT

Luckily, there are products on the market that are specifically designed to block the production of DHT, such as vitamins, and topicals, both of which Kiierr has for you.

Their vitamins blocks DHT, and by doing so, improves scalp circulation, and promotes hair growth. They use all natural ingredients, all for the health of your hair, including Horsetail Extract, Folic Acid, Vitamin B, Nettle Root Extract, and Saw Palmetto, among other natural ingredients. These ingredients stop the DHT at the root, inhibiting the hormone from affecting your hair follicles, and encouraging new growth by removing barriers to blood flow.

The shampoos and conditioners also help promote hair growth by blocking DHT, using natural ingredients such as Zinc PCA, Green Tea, Kapilarine, Vitamin E, Pro-Vitamin B5, Jojoba Oil, and Keratin, among others. Each natural ingredient does wonders for your hair starting at the follicle. The Kapilarine complex is a blend of botanicals that is proven to be an efficient treatment against hair loss. It boosts microcirculation and cellular metabolism in the scalp, reducing inflammation contributing to seborrhea, a condition that causes scaly patches and red skin on the scalp.

If you or a loved one suffers from male or female pattern baldness, try out the DHT blockers to fight against hair loss. You’ll be surprised how much damage DHT does once it’s blocked.
