FAQs for DHT Blocking Shampoo
If you are just beginning to experience hair loss or not yet experiencing hair loss, Hair Restoration Laboratories’ DHT Blocking Shampoo can be an excellent method by which to help prevent or dramatically delay the onset or progression of hair loss.
What Is DHT And Why Does Removing It From Your Scalp Help Reverse Hair Loss?Both male and female pattern-baldness is an extremely common condition. It has been scientifically well established that the main cause of genetic hair loss is Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. DHT is a hormone produced by testosterone. When testosterone combines with a certain enzyme (5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme involved in steroid metabolism), the result is the production of DHT.
Unfortunately, DHT wreaks havoc on hair follicles. It forms a bond with the androgen receptors at the base of the hair follicles. This ultimately causes shrinking of the hair follicles and, after a while, either hair loss, hair thinning, or both.
To reverse hair loss, the DHT must be removed from the body. There are existing medications that can help in reducing the DHT in the body, but they are prescription medications and prescribed for men only (i.e. finasteride). If you are already using one of these medications, augmenting them by using a topical DHT blocker will enhance your efforts and effectiveness in fighting hair thinning and hair loss. Even if you are not taking prescription medication, you can nevertheless help block DHT levels in your body by using a shampoo containing ingredients that can inhibit 5-alpha-reductase. Inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase prevents DHT from connecting to the scalp’s androgen receptors, thereby preventing hair loss and miniaturization of hair follicles. Hair Restoration Laboratories’ DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo contains a number of ingredients (described below) that studies have shown to have the ability to inhibit the activity of 5-alpha-reductase, thus helping to reverse hair loss and to regrow stronger, healthier hair.
What Are The Main Ingredients That Make The DHT Blocking Shampoo Unique And So Effective?Salvia Miltiorrhiza Root Extract
Studies establish that this extract improves blood circulation to the hair follicle.
Ligusticum Chuanxiong Root Extract

Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract
Known for its adaptogen properties, this extract is rich is polysaccharides, which are nutrients critical to hair follicle health.
Camellia Japonica Seed Oil
In research studies, this extract has demonstrated potent antioxidant properties with the ability to inhibit the production of DHT.
Argania Spinosa Kernel Argan Oil
A natural oil that is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. This ingredient provides extensive conditioning and helps combat hair dryness and damage, in addition to diminishing frizz.
Biotin (Vitamin H)
An essential B-vitamin that promotes hair growth and aids in overall hair health. This ingredient strengthens both the hair follicle and the hair shaft, from which the hair grows.
Studies establish soy isoflavones promote hair growth by increasing dermal levels of insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1).
Also known as Vitamin E, this ingredient is an antioxidant and intensive hair conditioning vitamin. It also softens the hair, provides essential healthy-hair nutrients, and soothes & protects the scalp.
Niacin and hair growth go hand-in-hand because this B vitamin boosts energy and improves blood flow to the scalp. A healthy scalp is crucial for healthy hair growth.
Nigella Sativa Oil
Studies established that sativa increased hair growth and was effective in treating telogen effluvium, a hair loss condition primarily experienced by women. Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis Extract Studies of this leaf extract promoted more hair follicles in the anagen (growth) phase.
There are several reasons that may explain why phytosterols can be helpful in the treatment of hair loss. One of their main characteristics is their anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is often one of the characteristics of the alopecia scalp and several studies have shown that phytosterols have great anti-inflammatory purposes.

Cedrus Atlantica Bark oil
Subjects in a control group whose scalps were massaged with this oil saw a 15%-50% improvement in hair loss.
Studies confirm that this herb is a potent 5α-reductase inhibitor and hair growth promoter.
Can The DHT Blocking Shampoo Be Used With Minoxidil?
Absolutely. Unfortunately, studies repeatedly reflect that minoxidil only works for a small percentage of its users. And, for those who it benefits, it is more likely to slow the progression of hair loss, rather than actually regrow meaningful hair. If you are using minoxidil, supplementing it with a product that has the ability to remove DHT and other toxins from your scalp can be essential to promote maximum absorption of the minoxidil active ingredients, thus increasing its effectiveness.
Can The DHT Blocking Shampoo Be Effective Without Prescription Drugs?Yes. The primary cause of hair loss is genetic. When hair loss is caused by genetics, the presence of DHT in the hair follicle and scalp is almost always to blame for hair miniaturization. Hair miniaturization is a phenomenon in which strands of hair become thinner, shorter, more brittle or weak with each successive progression through the hair cycle. Over time, the miniaturization process leads to the appearance of thinner hair and hair loss. By helping to remove DHT from the scalp, the Hair Restoration Laboratories’ DHT Blocking Shampoo can assist in reversing and delaying the miniaturization process.
Can The DHT Blocking Shampoo Be Used By Men And Women?Yes. The DHT Blocking Shampoo can be used by men and women on a daily basis. All adults seeking to prevent or reverse hair loss will benefit from the shampoo, as it is free from sulfates, parabens, silicones and artificial ingredients. As with any hair loss regimen, it is recommended that you consult with your physician before commencing use of the DHT Blocking Shampoo.
How Should I Use The ShampooThe shampoo should be used daily and left on your scalp for a period of 3 to 5 minutes to allow for maximum absorption of the DHT-blocking ingredients. Your hair’s appearance will improve after the first use and hair loss benefits will be noticeable within a period of 3 to 5 months. If you experience any irritation from the shampoo, please discontinue its use.
