When the male hormone testosterone (which circulates through our bodies) is combined with the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, shape or produces DHT (dihydrotestosterone).
The DHT attaches to receptors in hair follicles. It causes the follicles to shrink and begin their growth cycle is shortened. Thus was born the hair is thinner and thinner and in smaller amounts. Eventually, the follicle closes and stops producing hair. This process is what causes hair loss and eventual baldness.
The accumulation of fat and cholesterol in the scalp can contribute to hair loss because it increases the amount of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase which is then converted to DHT.
The tallow can also block the hair follicle root and undernourished, making it more susceptible to the effects of DHT. Keep the scalp free of fat and cholesterol is imperative to reduce DHT and maintain healthy hair growth.
Another way to avoid hair loss is always having a good circulation. The lack of oxygen and blood flow to the scalp contributes to hair loss by weakening the hair follicle and making it more susceptible to the effects of DHT. Good blood circulation is essential for food and the growth of hair follicles. Again when the hair root is well supplied with blood can fight the effects of “minimization” of DHT.
Also avoid the damage caused by free radicals. Since there is a relationship between aging and loss of hair is important to take advantage of all the new compounds against aging and strong antioxidants.
