Causes of Hair Loss: What You Should Know...


  • Main cause of hair loss is DHT.
  • The most common hair loss is Androgenetic Alopecia.
  • Blocking DHT can Prevent Hair Loss and Thinning Hair.




Hair Loss Causes
There can be a number of reasons for the onset of hair loss. It is always a good idea to check with your doctor to make sure there aren't any medical reasons. However, Androgenetic Alopecia or pattern baldness causes 95% of all hair loss.

This type hair loss is driven by DHT (DiHydroTestosterone). Hair follicles have receptors for DHT which allow the DHT to attach itself to the hair follicle shrinking it and eventually keeping it from producing more hair.

The DHT Factor
The most widely accepted theory of what causes Androgenetic Alopecia is the DHT factor. DHT is produced when the enzyme 5 alpha reductase combines with testosterone. DHT then attaches it self to the hair follicle eventually causing it to stop producing hair. Apparently, the inherited genetic trait for hair loss, makes some hair follicles more susceptible to DHT.

In addition to this DHT factor there are other secondary factors that may also contribute to the hair loss. While they may not cause pattern baldness, they may affect how susceptible the hair follicle is to the effects of DHT. By being aware of these additional factors, we can increase our chances of preventing and halting hair loss through the blocking of DHT.


Secondary Factors

  • Excessive Sebum
    The accumulation of sebum in the scalp is believed to block hair follicles and contribute to hair loss. Recently, a group of Japanese researchers reported a correlation between excessive sebum in the scalp and hair loss. Excessive sebum often accompanying thinning hair is attributed to an enlargement of the sebaceous gland. They believe excessive sebum causes a high level of 5-alpha reductase which is then converted to DHT and also to pore clogging which would lead to malnutrition of the hair root.



  • Poor Circulation
    The lack of good blood circulation to the scalp may contribute to hair loss. When the hair root is well supplied with blood it is stronger and less susceptible to the shrinking effects caused by DHT. Good blood flow strengthens and rejuvenates the small blood vessels in the scalp. Stronger blood vessels Increases the longevity of the hair follicles specially in thinning areas and encourages hair growth.


  • Aging
    There is evidence that the production of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase is triggered by age. Many scientist believe that the free radical damage caused by our continuous exposure to pollutants, stress, and various stimuli is what accelerates the aging process in many of us. This aging process is what triggers the beginnings of hair loss. If we can keep our bodies from aging prematurely, then we can at least delay hair loss. Also, in a recent study of emu oil's anti-aging properties, researchers applied emu oil to the skin of depilated mice. After two weeks they found a 20% increase of the skin thickness. This is important because simply increasing skin thickness can smooth out wrinkles. And they also found that the hair follicles in the mice were much more robust and that 80% of telogen resting hair follicles were activated and began growing hair again.

  • Daily Stress
    While it is widely accepted that chemical treatments, pollution, hair-styling products, etc. DO NOT cause hair loss (Androgenetic Alopecia), they can dry and weaken all the hair increasing breakage and making the hair loss seem worse.
