DHT sensitivity of the hair follicle


To quote Will Hartfield,

“men who suffer from male pattern baldness don’t have particularly high levels of DHT. The problem is that our hair follicles are more sensitive to DHT and the hair follicle miniaturisation that DHT causes. So although lowering your DHT levels will help, there are more effective ways to stop hair loss, by reducing the sensitivity of the hair follicle to the DHT."

Improve diet and increase alkaline foods such as vegetables, nuts and seeds, fruits, remove gluten.
