What is DHT and why does it cause hair fall?

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a hormone derived from testosterone, a natural hormone found in both men and women. Those who are sensitive to it can experience male pattern balding and also experience their hair follicles to shrink and shorten the growth phase of the hair cycle.

Herbal shampoos like those at Luxuriant with DHT blocker reduced the hormones negative impact on hair follicles.

These products involve:

1. Ketoconazole which is anti-inflammatory and creates a healthier environment for hair growth.

2. Palmetto extract reduces DHT level in scalp and thus prevents hair from falling out and the hair follicles to shrink.

3. Pygeum Bark extract has been traditionally used in curing hair loss, hair breakage and hair thinning.

4. Biotin aka B7 supports the production of keratin, a protein that is responsible for the structure of hair strands. It also helps strengthen hair follicles and prevents breakage, leading to improved hair thickness and overall hair quality.

Our products not only include DHT blocker but are also made with natural herbs and not chemicals like paraben, sulphate and alcohol. This helps lessen the negative effect on your hair health and leads to less number of hair strands coming out in your shower.
