Hair Genesis™ is the only Non-Drug (naturally-derived from herbal and botanical sources) hair growth hair loss treatment with DHT Blockers backed by independent and published research study done according to FDA-regulated, IRB-monitored standards. It is clinically-proven to be safe and effective for both men and women to help stop thinning hair, and hairloss and help regrow hair naturally.

Hair Growth Stages

Healthy human hair normally follows a cycle of growth (Anagen stage), transition (Catagen stage) and then falling out (Telogen or resting stage). Then new hair growth starts over again.

Anagen - Growth Stage
Normal healthy hairs grow at the rate of about 1/2 inch per month, but vary by individual. A healthy hair follicle produces a strong, thick, colored hair. The hair follicles grow the hair for a period of 2 to 6 years in increase in diameter during this phase. In a normal scalp, about 90% of the hairs are in this stage at any given time. Some follicles produce thick colored hairs, called terminal hairs and other follicles produce short, thin, non-colored hairs, called vellus hairs.

Catagen - Transition Stage
After the growing stage, the hair goes into a short transitional stage, which typically lasts about two to three weeks. Less than 1% of your hair is in this stage at any given time.

Telogen - Resting Stage
Next the hair follicles enter a period of rest for approximately three months. After that time, the follicles lose their old hairs and resume the growing stage of producing new hairs. About 10% of your hairs are in the resting stage at any given time.

Most individuals lose between 40 and 100 hairs per day. This is a very small amount of hairs, considering that the average head of hair has approximately 100,000 individual shafts of hair.

Normally, as the hair goes through these three stages, the follicles tend to return to the same length and width during the growing phase. As a result, they generally produce the same length and width hair shafts.

All hairs cycle through these three stages repeatedly. The length and thickness of each hair shaft is determined by how long the hair itself is allowed to grow in the follicle before entering into the resting / shedding stage. Consequently, pattern hair loss is actually a gradual conversion of thick terminal hairs to thin vellus-like hairs.

What the HairGenesis™ researchers discovered about DHT and Hair Loss

5-Alpha-Reductase (5AR) is an enzyme in the body which converts the hormone testosterone into Di Hydro Testosterone (DHT) . DHT is important developmentally early in a man's life. However, it is widely believed to precipitate the most common variety of hair loss. In pattern hair loss, DHT triggers a chain of events that result in a negative growth cycle of hairs within susceptible hair follicles. The affected hair follicles continue in this negative progression until they no longer produce visible hair.

DHT binds (or locks into) to specific points on the hair follicle known as androgen receptor sites. The DHT then causes the follicles to shrink.

It is the binding (locking) of DHT inside the hair follicles and roots that is one of the primary causes of male and female pattern hair loss.

One may think of this as an electrical plug going into an electrical wall outlet. Unfortunately, when this attachment occurs in susceptible scalp hair follicles, it causes a negative change in the growth pattern of the hair. The follicle and accompanying structures begin a process of miniaturization. The hair shrinks in diameter and the hair growth cycle becomes shorter.

The result is smaller, thinner, weaker, virtually invisible hairs (lighter in color). Eventually the hair follicles and roots may die and the hair falls out, a process which is called "pattern hair loss" or AndroGenetic Alopecia (AGA). Over time, increased hair loss follows a particular pattern on the scalp, as shown in the Norwood pattern hair loss diagram. Hair outside of this pattern remains healthy and vigorous.

Research has also shown that DHT is found at the base of the hair shaft, or at its roots.  There it creates a wax-like substance around the roots and thus constricts the blood supply to them.

Proper nutrition is critical in order to maintain strong, healthy hairs. A restricted blood supply to the hair roots (dermal papilla) prevents necessary proteins, vitamins and minerals from bringing nourishment needed to sustain life in those hairs.

When there is a limited supply of blood to the hair roots, the cells in the follicles and roots reproduce at a much slower rate. This causes the hair follicles to become smaller and thus shortens their growing stage (anagen phase) and or lengthens their resting stage (telogen phase).

HairGenesis hair loss treatment products with DHT blockers interfere with the degenerating effects of DHT in the hair folliclesResearch has shown that in susceptible individuals, DHT contributes to the miniaturization of the hair follicles, weakening of the hairs themselves in those follicles, a shortening of the hair growth phase and a lengthening of the hair resting phase. As the growing phase becomes shorter, the quality of the hair degenerates, so the hairs becomes thinner, weaker and lighter in color. At the same time, there is more frequent fall out of those smaller and weaker hairs. This results in a gradual thinning of the hair on the affected areas of the scalp - hence, baldness may set in at those places.

For those wishing to develop a better understanding of the processes involved in this subject, we have provided a selection of more detailed relevant research data covering important elements of hair growth and the disorders associated with hair loss:
