How does Minoxidil work in hair loss products such as Rogaine™ For Men, Rogaine™ For Women, Avacor™ and Hair Advantage™?

5-Alpha-Reductase (5AR) is an enzyme in the body that is involved in DHT Metabolism, a process that converts the hormone testosterone into Di-Hydro-Testosterone (DHT). Research indicates that DHT is found not only within the hair follicle, but also at the root of the hair shaft (dermal papilla). It is the accumulation of DHT in the hair follicles and roots that is one of the primary causes of male and female pattern hair loss. The DHT causes the follicles to shrink in size and also creates a wax-like substance around the hair roots and thus constricts the blood supply to them. It also causes the hair shafts in those follicles to grow shorter in length, thinner, weaker and even lighter in color. Eventually those follicles may die and the hair shafts in them fall out. Learn more about harmful DHT and its effects in causing male and female pattern hairloss and baldness.

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).

Thus the hairs in those affected follicles also become weaker, smaller and lighter in color. Eventually those hair roots and follicles die and the hairs in them fall out.

How does Minoxidil work in hair loss treatment products? The concept is that by dilating the blood vessels in the scalp, it might allow more oxygen and nutrients to reach the hair follicles and roots through the otherwise constricted blood vessels.

One of the reasons that Minoxidil-based products are generally not effective in stopping hair loss is that Minoxidil does not block the harmful effects of DHT in the scalp and hair follicles. Minoxidil is a blood pressure medication, so when it is applied to the scalp topically, it simply dilates blood vessels in the scalp, with the idea that more nutrients and oxygen might then get into the hair follicles to keep them alive
. The problem is that meanwhile, the harmful DHT is still being produced in the body and still getting into the scalp and hair follicles and causing the hair to fall out.

Minoxidil is generally not effective long-term in treating pattern hairloss

Available in over the counter formulations, Minoxidil contains as much as 60% rubbing alcohol, which dries the scalp. Research has shown that when it dries on your hair, it actually weakens and damages the hair shafts themselves, making them dry and brittle. As a result, some Minoxidil cannot be effectively absorbed into the hair follicles. The hairs which are above your scalp are not living cells and so once they are damaged, they cannot be repaired.

Compare Rogaine, Avacor, Hair Advantage and Minoxidil vs drug free Hair Genesis. HairGenesis hair growth hair loss treatment remedy with DHT blockers is more effective in treating thinning hair and male and female pattern hairloss. Compare Rogaine, Avacor, Hair Advantage and Minoxidil with Hair Genesis. HairGenesis hair loss treatment products with DHT blockers is far more effective in treating thinning hair and male and female pattern hair loss.

DHT accumulates in the hair follicles and roots, constricting the blood supply of oxygen and nutrients to the hair roots. Sebum oils also build up, blocking the upward growth of hair shafts and preventing the topical lotion in Minoxidil-based products from being effectively absorbed into the scalp and hair follicles.

Hair Genesis products thoroughly clean the scalp and hair follicles of accumulated sebum oils and other substances. They also help protect the hair follicles and roots from losing their hairs by preventing DHT from binding (locking) inside them at the androgen receptor sites.  Hair Genesis also inhibits the production of more DHT in the body, through the use of clinically proven and naturally-derived DHT blockers.

Take a look at the picture above on the left. There are two sebaceous glands, one on each side of the hair follicle. Sebum oils are secreted from these glands to lubricate the hair for smooth upward growth and also give the hair shafts their luster and shine. But if the hairs are not strong and healthy (due to the effects of accumulated DHT in them), the sebum oils also accumulate and harden inside the follicles. This then further blocks the normal growth of the already thinning and weakened hairs. (Many commercial shampoos do not do an effective job of thoroughly cleansing the hair follicles of sebum oils. They are not designed to remove the accumulated DHT either.)

It is this build up of sebum oils that also blocks some hair loss treatment products, such as Minoxidil, from getting into the follicles to help. Consequently, the Minoxidil sometimes cannot effectively penetrate past the sebum and reach the hair root (dermal papilla) where the hair growth actually starts from. The result is that the Minoxidil (containing as much as 60% alcohol) stays on the surface of the scalp, and in some instances, causes an irritation to the scalp itself, along with itching and drying of the hair shaft. This in part explains why some people experience these side effects when using hair loss treatment products containing Minoxidil.

DHT in the hair follicles also creates a wax-like substance around the roots. This effectively constricts the flow of blood containing vital oxygen and nutrients to those roots. Since Minoxidil only dilates the blood vessels, whatever amount eventually does reach the roots does not remove the on-going problem of DHT build-up and the wax-like substance around the roots.

In comparison, learn how HairGenesis™ works and why this unique line of naturally-derived botanical products is more effective plus safer to use than Minoxidil in stopping hair loss and the reversing the effects of pattern hair loss that many men and women experience.
