How to Remove DHT from your Scalp and Trigger Sudden New Hair Growth

Have you ever noticed how balding men have incredibly shiny scalps?

That fact is far more important than you might think.

DHT causes fibrosis in your scalp. Fibrosis is basically scarring. When scarring occurs your scalp becomes shiny. And when that happens it means the hair follicles have been destroyed.

In fact, once fibrosis has set in, hair cannot grow. It’s impossible.

Reducing DHT will help prevent further fibrosis from occurring, but it WILL NOT MAKE HAIR GROW BACK.

So what’s the answer?

The answer to making your hair grow back is not just to reduce DHT.

The answer is to REGENERATE YOUR SCALP SKIN.

And that is the genius of this method…

If you want to regrow your hair you MUST heal the fibrosis and inflammation caused by DHT

But more than that. You have to regenerate the scalp skin so new, healthy scalp skin grows, replacing the scarred skin. And the new fibrosis-free skin will contain hair follicles.

This phenomenon has been observed in several studies at major research facilities

This method works by alternating between gently breaking down the scar tissue in the scalp and intensely nourishing it with powerful hair growth nutrients.

By mildly damaging the scalp skin and then flooding the scalp with a special combination of amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals the scalp begins to heal itself and new hair growth begins.

This phenomenon has been observed in several studies at major research facilities around the world but as far as I’m aware I’m the only person to put this science into a practical method that anyone can use at home on their own, with no scientific equipment needed.

Your skin is an incredibly sophisticated organ that has evolved over millions of years.

Think about this:

Your skin can do something amazing. No other organ in your body can do this. It’s quite remarkable when you think about it:

It can heal itself.

Your skin can rebuild itself. All on its own.

Skin is made of layers of skin cells.

But it also contains the DNA needed to make new hair.

Hair follicles are part of the skin. Therefore, if the skin is damaged it not only regrows skin, it regrows hair follicles!

And that is the key to the method I’m about to show you.

What we’re going to do is use a very simple technique to gently break down the fibrosis. Then we’ll flood your scalp with a special combination of amino acids.

These are the same amino acids that your hair is made of.

Hair is made of keratin. Keratin is made of 9 amino acids and a little bit of sulfur.

I’m going to show you how to flood your scalp with the raw materials it needs to grow new hair.

Then we’re going to break down the old scarred scalp skin, which cannot grow hair.

Then, when the scalp repairs itself, new hair follicles are grown.

As we repeat this process more and more new hair follicles are produced all over the scalp.

How we’re going to safely reduce DHT to prevent further fibrosis

As well as showing you how to break down fibrosis in your scalp and initiate new hair growth, I’m going to show you the best possible way to naturally and safely reduce serum DHT. Just take a look at this…

Your hair is being rapidly killed by a common hormone called DHT.

But did you know that high ‘cortisol’ hormone is what causes elevated DHT?

Cortisol is a powerful stress hormone. And when you have high testosterone and high cortisol your body produces high levels of DHT, which makes its way to your scalp, binds to the follicles and gradually ‘kills’ them.

But just look at this…

Without realizing it, you’re daily habits are killing your hair

You’re also ruining your health and making your life much harder than it needs to be. And it’s all because of a minor hormonal imbalance, that you could easily fix!

Your testosterone levels are highest in the morning…

Testosterone by time of day

The morning is also when you’re most stressed: Traffic jams, sub-ways, annoying emails, etc, etc. It’s easy to get angry and stressed in the morning.

So, every morning, you have high testosterone and high cortisol levels.

In other words…

Cortisol graph by time of day

…every morning, your body becomes a hair destroying DHT factory.

Because testosterone + cortisol = DHT…

Chris Carter before and after nicehair

The cortisol graph you see here illustrates typical cortisol levels. However, as someone who experiences hair loss, you likely have higher than normal cortisol, or higher than normal testosterone. Or a combination of the both. For me it was both. Which is why I lost my hair so young and so rapidly. Luckily I was able to get my hair back though (that’s me in the picture).

If you have high cortisol, it’s likely that your cortisol is elevated at night. Which is very bad. It likely means your cortisol chart is consistently elevated, which has bad ramifications for your whole life. If your cortisol is consistently elevated you probably feel tired a lot during the day; you’re probably not achieving the things you want to achieve in life due to low drive — and it means DHT is building up in your scalp day by day, gradually destroying your hair by causing more and more fibrosis.

Cortisol is in essence, a stress hormone. … When we have high levels of cortisol coursing through the body this leads to an increase in adrenaline, testosterone and in particular, a hormone known as dihydrotestosterone or DHT
Dr Seymour Weaver

You’re killing your hair, just by being you!

Through no fault of your own, you’re literally killing your hair every single day. You couldn’t be making your hair any worse if you tried. In fact it’s a wonder you have any hair left at all.

I’m serious. The way you’re living right now is quite simply the worst way to live if you want to keep your hair.

An elegant and powerful solution to this problem…

It’s frustrating for me to see so many people who have adopted lifestyle habits that are so destructive to their health and their hair. Especially when it’s so incredibly easy to fix this simple problem.

All you have to do is get your cortisol levels down as low as possible at night time.

That’s it. By doing so, you’ll sleep more deeply, meaning your body will regenerate more effectively while you sleep. Your brain function will improve. Your stress levels will reduce dramatically. Your focus will improve during the day. You’ll be sharper, better at your job, you’ll have more energy… …and of course your scalp won’t be filled to the brim with hair destroying DHT. You’ll also see improvements in your skin and even your long-term health — studies indicate that the stress hormone is a major contributor to serious illnesses like cancer and heart disease.

Think about the people you know with hair loss. They’re usually the highly stressed ones. Now think about the people you know with thick hair. They’re more often than not the relaxed ones.

And check this out…

Studies have shown that highly successful people like business owners, top athletes and rock stars tend to have very low cortisol levels (and did you notice they also seem to have thick hair into their old age?!) Having low cortisol helps you stay focused and calm in tense situations, enabling you to think clearly and make good decisions.

This is quite simply VITAL, if you want to regrow your hair

Think about it. If you have high cortisol you sleep badly, which is bad for your health. And when you wake up and your testosterone is elevated, the combination of cortisol and testosterone turns your body into a hair destroying DHT factory.

It’s no wonder you’re losing your hair.

How to reduce your cortisol to super healthy levels while you sleep

There’s a remarkable audio program (which comes free with my download linked below), that’s designed to make your cortisol levels as low as possible when you wake. So in the morning, instead of your cortisol peaking out of control, you stay calm, focused and in total control.

The audio uses subconscious binaural rhythms, isotronic tones and subliminal messages to ‘optimize’ your mind to the most perfectly healthy, stress-free calm, deep sleep, enabling your body to maximize regeneration.

What Does DHT Do?

Dihydrotesterone (DHT) is a sex steroid and androgen found in the testes, prostate, adrenal glands and hair follicles. It’s produced by the reaction of the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme with another androgen, testosterone. It’s estimated that about 5% to 7% of the body’s testosterone is converted tpo DHT, with most produced in the prostate gland.

DHT has been shown to be twice as likely to bind with androgen receptors, and five times more adhesive. This matters because DHT has also been shown to be a significant contributor to androgenic alopecia. AGA is the most common form of hair loss and affects both men and women. It’s estimated that by the time they reach 50, over half of American men will suffer from DHT-triggered hair loss.

More androgen receptors in the Scalp = More Hair Loss?

Balding cells contained significantly (P < 0.01) greater levels of androgen receptors (Bmax = 0.06 +/- 0.01 fmol/10(4) cells (mean +/- S.E.M.)) than those from non-balding scalp (0.04 +/- 0.001)

Many of these androgen receptors exist in hair follicles on the scalp. How readily DHT binds to them is partly influenced by genetic factors. Some people have hair follicles which are more susceptible to DHT, and so are more likely to suffer from AGA. This 1998 study showed that the scalps of balding men contain higher levels of androgen receptors than those of non-balding men.

How does DHT cause hair loss?

it prevents the amino acids and minerals needed to nourish the hair from getting through

DHT causes hair loss by disrupting the healthy hair growth cycle. Hair grows during the anagen phase, when the follicles are active. After a brief catagen phase, which allows for follicle renewal, the follicles go through a resting (telogen) phase.

Balding cells contained significantly (P < 0.01) greater levels of androgen receptors (Bmax = 0.06 +/- 0.01 fmol/10(4) cells (mean +/- S.E.M.)) than those from non-balding scalp (0.04 +/- 0.001)

DHT attaches to receptor cells at the root of the hair follicles (the dermal papillae). From here it prevents the amino acids and minerals needed to nourish the hair from getting through. As a result the hair follicles shrink — a process called miniaturization. This leads to a shorter anagen phase and a longer telogen phase. New hair grown from miniaturized follicles is much thinner and shorter. Eventually it stops growing and falls out because the more prevalent telogen hair is less firmly rooted to the scalp.

What Causes DHT To Increase?

The level of DHT in the body is dependent on the levels of free circulating testosterone. As men age their testosterone levels decline, and you might expect DHT levels to decline too. This doesn’t happen though. The reason DHT levels remain the same in older age is explained by the fact that testosterone is converted to a wide variety of byproducts, not only DHT. As the body ages it shifts focus of testosterone conversion away from these other byproducts to maintain normal DHT levels.

Many studies have shown that obese men have much lower levels of testosterone than those with a normal BMI. Reducing your weight can increase levels of testosterone and in turn, DHT. Weight loss also reduces the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, which means there’s more available to be converted to DHT.

Regular exercise will also increase DHT levels. Resistance exercise like weightlifting is good for stimulating testosterone production. While explosive spurts of exercise, such as sprinting, will cause your DHT levels to rocket.

The foods you eat will also affect your DHT. Testosterone production can be stimulated by increasing your carbohydrate intake while restricting protein.

How To Reduce DHT

Finasteride/Propecia

Finasteride

DHT levels can be reduced by medical means. Propecia (Finasteride) is one of only two FDA-approved drugs for hair loss. It blocks DHT production by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase from reacting with free testosterone. By taking Propecia circulating levels of DHT can be decreased by 65% to 98%. This 1998 study concluded that 1mg pill taken daily could slow hair loss and increase hair regrowth. Once treatment stops, hair loss will resume.

DHT Blocker Supplements

DHT blocker supplements

There are hundreds of DHT blocker supplements available online. These supplements contain natural plant extracts that have been shown in studies to reduce DHT levels. The best ingredients to look for in DHT blocker supplements are:

Topical DHT Blockers

Topical DHT blockers

You can apply the above ingredients to the scalp using topical solutions or oils such as pumpkin seed oil (see below). Less research has been conducted on topical use of extracts like saw palmetto, but there’s is a reasonable amount of investment in topical DHT blockers.

DHT Blocker Shampoo

Best anti DHT shampoos

As well as using a topical leave in scalp treatment, there are many shampoos that claim to block DHT. I’ve listed what I consider to be the best DHT blocker shampoos here.

It worth noting that ketoconazole is thought to be a good topical DHT blocker. Currently the most popular shampoo with the highest concentration of ketoconazole is a shampoo called Nizoral (pictured). Nizoral contains 2% ketoconazol. Ketoconazole is a highly toxic ingredient so you should only use Nizoral two or three times a week tops. There are several shampoos with lower concentrations of ketoconazole, which I’ve listed on my ketoconazxole shampoo page.

Nizoral a-d hair loss shampoo

My recommendation is to use a 2% ketoconazole shampoo twice a week and use a high quality hair loss shampoo for the rest of the week.

Green Tea

Organic green tea

A readily available, natural DHT blocker is green tea. Aside from other benefits, green tea contains epigallocatechin-3-Gallate (EGCG), a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. A study by the Harvard Medical School published in the Journal of Nutrition proved green tea reduces DHT levels.

Pumpkin seed oil

Pumpkin seed oil

Pumpkin seed oil has also been proven to inhibit the production of 5-alpha-reductase. Pumpkin seeds contain not one but two DHT blockers. The first is beta-sitosterol, a phytosterol, which is structurally like cholesterol. The other is a steroid, delta-7-sterine. A 2014 Chinese study evaluated the effect of a daily dose of 400mg of pumpkin seed oil on 38 men with AGA. A randomized equal number of men received a placebo. After 24 weeks, scientists discovered a 40% mean increase in hair count in the group receiving the pumpkin seed oil as compared to the placebo group.

It should be noted that a small percentage of men taking DHT blockers suffer from adverse side effects. These can include loss of sexual libido, depression and gynecomastia, the development of male breasts.

DHT blockers work, and there is ample scientific evidence to prove it. By inhibiting the destructive effects of the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, hair loss can be slowed.

My Method for Removing DHT from the Scalp

DHT is the most significant cause of hair loss. What you’re about to read explains how to

  • safely remove DHT from your scalp;
  • unblock pores in your scalp;
  • and trigger your body to increase cell production, blood circulation and nutrient allocation in your scalp.

Ever noticed how bald and balding people almost always have shiny scalps?

Ever wondered what causes it?

That shininess is actually caused by a thick, dense, embedded layer of ‘sebum’ combined with dead skin cells and other materials, such as pollution and cosmetic products.

Sebum is the oil that secretes from your skins pores and helps condition your hair. However, it contains DHT.

There’s also a whole load of DHT just under your skin and flowing in your blood.

That’s the reason your hair is thinning.

It’s as simple as this: if you want to stop your hair loss you need to remove DHT from your scalp and block DHT in your body.

And if your scalp is shiny, your scalp is literally covered in a thick layer of hair killing sebum based plaque. If you do nothing else to help your hair do what you’re about to learn about.

Strip DHT Away From Your Scalp

The technique I’ve developed strips away the DHT containing sebum based plaque, leaving your scalp skin renewed, fresh and free to start growing hair again.

This technique unblocks the pores in the scalp, allowing hairs to grow freely.

And in my opinion, it’s vital that you do this if you want to regrow your hair.

You can use all the hair loss treatments in the world. But if you don’t do this, their effect will be minimal. You must perform this simple at home procedure if you want to stop your hair loss and regrow your hair.

DHT removed from the scalp

Remove DHT from the scalp

Not only does this technique strip away DHT from the scalp and unblock the pores, it also triggers your body to significantly increase blood flow to your hair follicles, which increases the amount of nutrients being sent to your hair.

The result is that your scalp starts to regrow new hair that was once being restricted by DHT.

This technique can be performed at home, on your own in around twenty minutes. If you have a very shiny scalp it will take a little longer — for some people it can take up to an hour to perform the technique. It’s well worth it though. Once your scalp is transformed you’ll notice your skin is fresh and ‘baby-like’ and is the ideal environment for hair growth. Your scalp will be flowing with blood, carrying nutrients to your hair.
