Zinc PCA, Green Tea, & Kapilarine block DHT and Deep Cleans the Scalp & Hair!
Kiierr DHT Blocking Shampoo helps inhibit the conversion of 5-alpha reductase enzymes to DHT – a leading cause of hair loss and thinning – primarily in men. Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most common type of baldness in men. Hair at the temples and on the crown will slowly thin and eventually disappear.
To understand male pattern baldness, we need to understand hair growth. The following is a brief summary of normal hair growth.
Hair growth is split into three phases: anagen, catagen and telogen:
Anagen: the growth phase. Hairs remain in this phase for 2-6 years. The longer this phase lasts, the longer the hair grows. Normally around 85% of the hairs on the head are in this phase
Catagen: this phase lasts only 2 weeks and allows the follicle to renew itself
Telogen: this is the resting phase where the follicle lies dormant and can last from 1-4 months. Normally 10-15% of hairs are in this phase.Once this phase is over and anagen begins again, the existing hair is pushed out of the pore by the new growth and naturally sheds.
In male pattern baldness, follicles slowly become miniaturized and the anagen phase of the hairs is reduced. Due to the shortened growing phase, the hair’s maximum length is reduced. At the same time, the telogen phase lengthens. This cycle slowly becomes more and more weighted toward the telogen phase. Over time, the anagen phase becomes so short that the new hairs do not even peek through the surface of the skin.
Miniaturization of the follicles causes the shaft of the hair to become thinner and thinner with each cycle of growth. Eventually, normal (terminal) hairs are reduced to villus hairs.
Kapilarine complex is a natural treatment for hair loss and hair growth, and is basically a combination of natural extracts of Kigelia Africana, Salvia, Cinnamon and Gingko biloba.
The Kapilarine complex is blend of botanicals that proved to be one of the most efficient treatments against hair loss and works wonders when it comes to hair growth. It boosts microcirculation and cellular metabolism in the scalp, and reduces inflammation contributing to seborrhea.
Kigelia africana is often cultivated ornamentally, but Tanzanian tribes have long used its fruits as well as leaves and bark to all sorts of treatment uses for generations. When combined with Salvia, Cinnamon and Gingko biloba extracts, it inhibits the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, the action of which can contribute to hair loss, while Ginkgo biloba efficiently stimulates microcirculation, reactivating the hair’s natural life cycle.
Here are some key points about dihydrotestosterone (DHT):
• Testosterone is turned into DHT by enzymes.
• DHT is five times more potent than testosterone.
• More than half of men are likely to experience male pattern baldness mediated by DHT.
• DHT is an androgen and helps give males their male characteristics.
• There is no known role of DHT in female development.
• DHT causes hair follicles to miniaturize.
Androgens are responsible for the biological characteristics that typify males – deep voices, hairy chests and increased muscle mass, for example.
Testosterone is converted to DHT by specific enzymes. Roughly 5% of free testosterone is normally converted into DHT. DHT is a particularly potent androgen, five times more potent than testosterone. It attaches to the same sites as testosterone but with more ease and remains bound for longer periods of time.
Green Tea Extract helps fight hair loss by reducing DHT and Cholesterol. It also helps promote new healthy hair growth. Green Tea has powerful anti-oxidant properties that help improve hair growth by helping maintain the collagen, or the hair follicles’ connective tissue. It also protects the cells in the blood vessels of the scalp to create healthy hair growth.
Zinc PCA offers several advantages for hair loss or chronically oily scalp and hair. Zinc PCA helps regulate the sebaceous glands that secrete sebum (oil) on our skin and scalp. Equally effective, Zinc PCA also helps block DHT, the primary cause of hair loss in men and women.
