DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone, is a hormone that contributes to the development of male sex characteristics, such as body hair. High levels of DHT can make you lose hair faster that leads to male pattern baldness in genetically-susceptible men.
DHT blockers are used to prevent DHT from binding to 5-AR receptors, including those in your hair follicles that can allow DHT to shrink follicles. In simpler terms, it blocks DHT by slowing down the production of it in your body. There are many forms DHT blockers come in, and here’s a full list of ways in which you can consume DHT Blockers.
Specifically in this article, DHT blockers can be taken in your body through the form of certain oils and supplements and we’ll cover them below.
DHT Blocking Oils
1. Rosemary Oil
In 2015, scientists found that Rosemary Oil studied effectivity reduced DHT levels compared with Minoxidil. Bald mice treated with rosemary oil grew their hair back faster than those treated with Minoxidil.
2. Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree Oil has antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties that make it a good candidate as a DHT Blocker. It has been proven to increase follicle activity. Although results may not be as evident as with rosemary oil, tea tree oil has qualities that will eradicate any nasty bacteria, fungus, viruses, or even dandruff that lingers in your hair follicles.
3. Lavender Oil
A study on mice that were treated with lavender oil found that the treatment increased their hair follicle count and depth, which ultimately resulted in more hair growth. When compared with the effects of Minoxidil, lavender oil provided comparable results. Lavender oil also has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that can maintain the health of the scalp and hair follicles.
4. Shampoo and Oil
Mixing a nutrient-rich shampoo with essential oils can work wonders on your hair follicles. However, ensure that sulfates are not an ingredient in your shampoo before mixing oils into it. When mixing the substances, multiply the number of ounces in the shampoo bottle by ten, and add that many drops of essential oil to your shampoo.
DHT Blocking Supplements and Vitamins
There are many options for DHT Blocker tablets in India. DHT Blocker Pills can be bought at your local health store. However, ensure whatever DHT Blocking supplement you choose includes vitamins that support hair growth.
One example of such a vitamin is biotin. Biotin is a B vitamin that can convert fats, carbs, and proteins into energy. It also maintains the health of your skin and hair. We recommend that you consider taking supplements that have biotin or other such vitamins that play a large role in hair growth to expect the best possible results.
