Hair thinning in men and women
Hair thinning in men is not uncommon; around 85% of men will experience some kind of thinning by the time they’re 50. Although factors such as stress and a lack of protein may contribute, hormones can also play a big role as they affect testosterone. The enzyme 5 alpha reductase (5α-reductases) is said to be responsible for converting testosterone into DHT (which can inhibit hair growth). This is why blocking DHT and balancing 5 alpha reductase levels can be key in helping with thinning hair.
Thinning hair in women can be just as prominent as men, with around 1 in 3 experiencing thinning of some kind at a point in their lives. Although it can vary from woman to woman, some of the main factors that can affect hair thinning may include genetics, stress, diet, age and overuse of products or styling methods. It can also be common for women after pregnancy to find their hair begins to thin and becomes weaker, which may be due to the imbalance of hormones in the body.
