Spironolactone for hair loss: how it works

Topical Spirolactone is an anti-androgen cream. When applied to the scalp it binds to the DHT receptors, which blocks DHT from binding to the receptors, preventing DHT from causing hair loss.

We know DHT causes hair loss because drugs that reduce DHT also reduce hair loss. However, drugs that reduce DHT also have terrible side effects. So a topical anti androgen might be a better option if you don’t want severe side effects. We know DHT causes hair loss because drugs that reduce DHT also reduce hair loss.
