What’s the cause of hair loss and balding, especially in men – but also in women?
Well, genetics plays a big role of course, as I’ve stated many times before.
But yes, genetics aside – the #1 cause of hair loss is hormonal imbalance and it mainly has to do with male androgens, which are primarily testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Teenagers and guys in their 20s have the highest testosterone levels, while older men past the age of 40 and so forth, have the lowest levels.
So, IF testosterone is the cause of hair loss, then all the guys in their 20s will be bald, and yet, it starts later in life when testosterone levels begin to drop.
As we get older is that the testosterone gets more converted to and reduced to DHT – dihydrotestosterone.
You start balding, you get more body hair and your prostate grows.
DHT Inhibitor Drugs
This is why DHT inhibitor drugs such as Finasteride (Proscar) and Dutasteride (Avodart) help with hair loss and prostate problems.
Unfortunately, they have lots of negative side effects – including impotence and depression.
However, if you blocked or lowered all male hormones – testosterone and DHT – basically, castrating yourself. Then hair loss can stop and even reverse.
Obviously, you don’t want to castrate yourself.
This last point is that DHT is probably the worst hormone for the scalp and one of the biggest causes of hair loss.
The Natural Solution
So what’s the best solution for you to still have a high libido and sex drive, feel good, have more muscle and less belly fat while reducing your chances of balding?
Naturally, increase your testosterone levels within the normal range.
Naturally, decrease DHT levels within a normal range.
Naturally, decrease excess levels of estrogens and stress hormones.
What you do NOT want to do is kill off your DHT and/or testosterone levels. Don’t “castrate” yourself like many drugs will do, just to have some head hair.
Do it naturally.
One of my favorite solutions for optimizing your hormones is AlphaViril, which is what I have personally used for more than 15 years.
