What is DHT?

psoriasis picMONAT QUESTION OF THE DAY: What is DHT and why does it cause hair loss?

DHT, whose scientific name is dihydrotestosterone, is the product of a natural reaction that occurs in the body from things like aging, stress, hormonal changes, and genetics. In the scalp, an enzyme known as alpha 5 reductase is produced. An over-abundance of testosterone reacts with the enzyme and begins to create DHT. This byproduct then reacts with the hair follicles, shrinking, clogging and causing them to become thinner until eventually, they suffocate. Thank goodness for MONAT’s active ingredient Capixyl. It counteracts the formation of DHT, allowing the follicle to breathe once again, and the hair to grow longer, fuller, stronger, younger-looking, naturally!
