DHT とは何ですか? なぜ重要なのですか?

ジヒドロテストステロン (DHT) は、髭の成長、体毛の成長、お尻の成長などの変化に関与する強力なアンドロゲン ホルモンです。テストステロンの一部は DHT に変換され、血液中を循環して使用されます。未発達の顔の毛包の受容体などのアンドロゲン受容体と結合して、ひげの毛を作成して厚くすることができます.一般に、DHT は、個人がテストステロンを開始する際に求める変化の多くを担っています。

DHT は、顔、体、お尻の成長に必要です。これらが求める機能である場合は、DHT の阻害を避けたい.市場に出回っている多くの製品には、ほとんどのひげ製品でさえ、DHT ブロッカーが含まれています。もちろん、これは科学的な観点からは意味がありません。

DR DHTひげ製品にはDHTに安全な成分と比率が含まれているため、顔の毛の進行に悪影響を与えることはありません.

顔や体の毛の成長のために DHT レベルを最適化するにはどうすればよいですか?

1.T レベルが一貫して範囲内にあることを確認してください。レベルを調べるには、医師に確認する必要があります。一般的には300~900ng/dLが目安です。また、一般的に言えば、Tが高いほど、DHTレベルが高くなります.その範囲の上限にいると、血中 DHT レベルを最適化するのに役立ちます.

2.  DHT ブロッカーを含む製品 (特にリーブオン製品) を定期的に使用することは避けてください。

一般的な DHT をブロックする成分のリストがあります。チェックしてみてください。ここ. 

一般的な DHT ブロッカーには、ココナッツ オイル、ラウリル硫酸ナトリウム、サリチル酸、フィナステリド (経口薬) が含まれます。

定期的に使用すると、顔の毛の進行を妨げる可能性があります。これらの成分の多くは頭髪には良いかもしれませんが、顔/体毛 (アンドロゲン毛) を得る場合はまったく逆です.

3.このヒントは DHT レベルを変更しない場合がありますが、顔の皮下層を介してより多くの DHT を循環させ、アンドロゲン受容体と結合して髪を作成する可能性を高めます.

血流刺激!これを行うにはさまざまな方法があります。

まず、私のビアードグロワーオイル顔の皮膚層の血流を自然に刺激します。これが必要なのは、毛が独立して太くなるためには、良い血液源が必要だからです.それはまた、本質的により多くのDHTをその領域に循環させます.

次に、ダーマ ローラー (0.5 mm である必要があります) を使用すると、血流の刺激が 2 倍になり、発毛が促進されます。Beard Grower Oil と一緒に使用すると、オイルの吸収がさらに良くなります。これを週に2〜3回行い、その後にオイルを塗り、ロールしない日にもオイルを塗ります.

一貫した血流刺激は、顔の毛の成長を刺激するために(Tを服用する以外に)人ができる最善のことです.

一貫性が鍵です!それは時間がかかります。現実的であること. 

考慮すべき非常に重要な要素

1. 遺伝的要因。明らかに、私のビアードオイルとダーマローリングはあなたの遺伝子を変えることはありませんが、あなたの体/遺伝子を放っておいて仕事をするよりも、より良いチャンスを与えてくれます.

遺伝的要因の例: 

アンドロゲン受容体感受性.敏感な受容体を持たない人もいますが、これは遺伝的特徴です。受容体が鈍感な場所に毛が生えないというわけではありません。ただし、それはおそらく、より長い時間がかかり、そこで成長するのが難しくなることを意味します.それでも、 ができる最善のことは、DHTが受容体と結合して毛を生成することを期待して、本質的により頻繁に「サイコロを振る」ように、血流を刺激し続けることです._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

DHT変換.あなたの T が DHT に変換される量。これは遺伝的に決定できます。

フィナステリドのような薬はこの変換に影響を与える可能性があることに注意してください.

SHBGレベル(性ホルモン結合グロブリン) SHBG は循環し、体が通常利用できる遊離性ホルモンに結合します。したがって、それが結合するアンドロゲンは、ひげ/体毛などを作成するために使用することはできません.SHBGレベルが高い場合、遊離アンドロゲンホルモンが受容体と結合して「男性的な」変化を起こすことができなくなります. T レベルと一緒にこれらのレベルを確認するように医師に依頼できます。

 

髪の模様・色.また、遺伝によって決定されます。特定の方向に向かう毛がありますか?頭髪とは違う色のあごひげはどうですか。それはすべて遺伝学にかかっています。一部の病状は、髪の色や髪のパッチを変える可能性がありますが.

DHT and head-hair loss

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a powerful androgenic hormone responsible for changes such as beard growth, body hair growth and more. 

However, higher levels of DHT can, at the same time, trigger androgenic alopecia in some people, if their genetics say so. Look at the men on your mom's side AND your dad's side. Do they bald? Contrary to popular misinformation, this is not limited to "just looking at your mom's side" for trans masculine folks. Why? Because this major balding genetic is linked to the X chromosome and many trans masc folks get one X from mom, and one X from dad. Therefore, they may have hair loss patterns that look like mom OR dad's side.

Note when they started balding. Was it early on? 20's to 30's? Was it later? 40's, 50's, 60's? Then you have a chance of balding overtime as you are on testosterone. Please note that this major genetic is NOT the only cause of hair loss.

A big difference to note in the case of trans individuals on T vs. their family balding, is how high your T levels are (consistently, over years.) Since we tend to have more control over our levels than someone who naturally makes T in their body, we could bald faster, or slower than our family members did!

For example, lets say only your mom's brother and your brother started visibly balding. This happened in their mid 20's, pretty early on. They've had notable amounts of T & DHT in their system for about 13 years when they started seeing significant hair loss. Lets say their average T levels were 500-600ng/dl.

You're noticing that after only 5 years on T you have visible balding, just as they did in their mid 20's, but you've only had T for 5 years, not 13! But lets say your levels were 800-900ng/dl during those entire 5 years and your SHBG was low. Having higher T levels than the men in your family, therefore causing your body to express hair loss sooner than them. This is an added factor many trans people forget about.

The opposite could be true as well. You balding SLOWER than the men on both sides of your family due to you having notably lower T levels than them over said period of time, therefore expressing less hair loss in X amount of time on T vs. your family members having T for that same period of time with more hair loss. Of course, it's not the only factor to think about, but surely one to note alongside the rest.

What can i do to help slow down dht related hair loss?

1. Keep your T levels at a range that doesn't trigger, or triggers less hair loss for you. This will vary from person to person. You'll have to figure out with trial and error & your doctor's guidance. Some people have very powerful hair loss genetics and even low levels could still trigger a notable amount of loss, keep this in mind. 

2. Use products that block DHT on the scalp (and keep them off/away from the beard zone.). This can include certain shampoos, topicals, or natural oils if you want to either go the natural route, minoxidil and/or topical finasteride. Not all products are created equally and know that they aren't the end-all be-all to hair loss, but instead, a tool to help slow it down over time. the earlier you start, the better. Once hair is significantly lost, it will become more difficult, and less likely for it to return to how it used to be. Always talk to a doctor before trying minox or any med. 

COMBINATION THERAPY IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE.

Combination therapy is using various resources and treatments at once (regularly) to attack, slow, or reverse hair loss. Example: Someone uses a DHT blocking shampoo daily, they apply a natural anti-DHT hair oil daily (and allow it to absorb), after derma rolling their scalp in problem areas (2-4x a week), then later that day they apply a medication hair loss treatment such as topical finasteride or minoxidil (always talk to a doc before using/considering meds.)

 

Consistency, daily, is what's best. Since DHT is circulating DAILY, you'll constantly need to block some of it at the scalp to prevent it from having such a negative effect on your head hair over time. Unless you get off  T, or drop your dose so low that you notice little to no hair loss. DHT is also secreted in your scalp's sebum, so washing regularly to remove that excess DHT can help.

3. Use oral DHT inhibiting medications. These are the most powerful at blocking DHT but there are 2 catches. One, they block DHT through your ENTIRE BODY. Therefore, much of that DHT you needed to get your beard to develop at its thickest, is no longer there for use. It can lower your DHT levels by up to 70%. Therefore, if you start finasteride right when you start T, it will likely stunt or change your facial hair development over time. One option is to start finasteride after a couple years on T (if you aren't noticing significant hair loss earlier than 2 years) this will help some beard hairs start to develop (depending on your genetics) so you have some facial hair going on, before you start the med. The med will not reverse any terminal, adult beard hairs you grew prior to taking it. But some folks may see younger facial hairs fall out or not thicken as much as they could. The second catch is that it tends to be expensive for these treatments, and they may require a prescription. Some people may not be able to use them if they have underlying health conditions. Always discuss this with a doctor, before starting a med. 

Topical finasteride does exist as well. It has less of a systemwide effect, therefore you can apply it to your scalp without it impacting you system's DHT levels as much. It is also quite expensive and requires a prescription. 

4. Use topicals that stimulate blood flow to help with regrowth. Any hair regrowth product requires consistency, preferably daily. A strong blood source is what can keep a hair going, or reverse a hair from miniaturization; that's when a follicle shrinks & hair falls out.

Topicals that stimulate blood flow include minoxidil. Though, it does NOT block DHT (unless it has DHT blocking additives, some do but most standard minox doesn't.) Talk to your doctor before using this. It is a vasodilator and used as a heart med, so it is not safe for everyone. It's also dangerous to use if you have cats, as it can be fatal to them. It is not safe for pets in general.

Many people respond to minoxidil, but understand any regrowth treatment will take time (time isn't' only 2 or 3 months, time is usually 6 months to 2 years!), and some may not work for you at all.

There are also natural products, such as the head hair regrowth and loss prevention oil I'm working on. These are a safer alternative tools to aid in hair regrowth. The one I'm working on will also include natural DHT blockers to help block DHT at the scalp, as you apply it daily. This would be great for someone who can't or won't use minoxidil or meds, or can be even used alongside minoxidil, or finasteride for that extra layer of protection (called combination therapy) It also would help with regrowth by simulating blood flow, and contain vitamins to help build stronger hair.
