Does anybody have a recommendation for a good shampoo to use to slow hair loss and help make thinning hair look a little fuller? Found this on Amazon but how does a shampoo reduce DHT, i was under the impression DHT was a hormone?
I tried a one of these shampoos and nothing besides cleaning my hair. I think they make the claims because somewhere the ingredients in the shampoo have some loose connection to DHT etc and that´s how they get away with making the claims. Truth is probably there is no way a shampoo can reduce DHT in the head, I kicked myself for falling for the rubbish after.
There is no scientific studies that show any shampoo will reduce DHT. Unlike topical medications that are left on your scalp to absorb in, shampoo is washed off. SeanFUE points out that some are good for cleaning your scalp which is the main reason we use shampoo. Some will make your hair feel good, shiny, thicker, etc but it won`t grow your hair back.
Yes, no shampoo i mentioned really grows new hairs. There really isn’t any that does so. Keep scalp healthy for thick grafts and prevent breakage. It may revive weaker hairs. At the same time, keeps funguses and other infections at bay by maintaining healthy scalp. Healthy scalp and blood flow is key. Excessive sebum, blocked oily scalp, itchy scalp, folliculitus, ring worm, and etc can be prevented by smart shampoo regimens.
