Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a sex hormone that's naturally produced in the body and plays a major role in developing certain masculine characteristics such as the prostate, muscle growth, deep voice, and hair. This hormone is a modified form of testosterone. Despite the fact that most people don't have to worry about their DHT levels, excessive levels of this hormone can cause hair loss. High levels of DHT block essential nutrients from reaching the hair follicles, which causes hair to degrade, shrink, and eventually stop growing thus leading to baldness. There are said to be several ways to reduce DHT levels to give hair a survival chance and in this article we will take a closer look at what some of these are.
