One question that’s often asked about Revita Shampoo by DS Laboratories is “Does Revita Block DHT?”
First of all, What is DHT?
DHT is a byproduct of testosterone, it is a hormone that is present in both men and women, and is known as an androgen. Androgens are hormones that are responsible for male characteristics. High levels of androgens can lead to a process called miniaturization where DHT in particular binds to receptors in your follicles and cause them to shrink. Once your follicles begin to shrink, they will not be able to support healthy hairs in the same way they have before, your hair will begin to grow thinner and weaker.
Per WEBMD, “while testosterone is at the core of the balding process, dihydrotestosterone(DHT) is now thought to be the main culprit. DHT, a derivative of the male hormone testosterone, is the enemy of hair follicles on your head. Simply put, under certain conditions DHT wants those follicles dead.”
As testosterone is converted to DHT, it has the potential to accumulate in your hair follicles. This process causes the follicle to miniaturize. A miniaturized hair follicle is a troubling situation, causing your hair to begin growing thinner and more brittle than usual, they will also tend to fall faster from your head, as the hair growth cycle is disrupted. As the miniaturization progresses, hair health will continue to deteriorate as hairs continue to become thinner and more brittle. The end result of this process if not treated properly is an inactive hair follicle, after becoming fully clogged with DHT, the follicle will become fully inactive and cease to grow hair.
What Causes an Increase in DHT?
When levels of testosterone increase, more of it is converted to dihydrotestosterone and so levels of dihydrotestosterone therefore also increase as a result. … As testosterone in the blood increases, more of it is also converted to dihydrotestosterone, resulting in higher levels of dihydrotestosterone as well.
