Thinning Hair in Men
Thinning hair is a big issue amongst many men, with around 85% of men experiencing hair thinning to some extent by the time they’re 50. There are many different factors that may cause hair to thin in men. Some of these potential causes may include:
- Lack of protein
Some of these factors, especially genetics and hormones play a large part in thinning hair. This is because they can affect testosterone levels in the body. A big cause of thinning hair is caused by DHT action, which is mediated by the enzyme 5 alpha reductase (5α-reductases) in the hair follicles. This enzyme is present in small amounts in the muscles and is responsible for converting testosterone into DHT. DHT causes the hair follicles to shrink and inhibits its growth, resulting in fine and thinning hair. This is why blocking this DHT and balancing 5 alpha reductase levels can be a key way in helping with thinning hair and allowing it to grow thick and healthy.
