Aging is an unavoidable part of life, but we all have a choice: age gracefully, or age quickly. For men, DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is an endogenous androgen sex steroid and hormone that defines male traits during puberty, like body hair and deep voices, but effects us differently as we get older.
As we age, DHT begins to affect the prostate gland, seminal vesicles, epididymides, skin, hair follicles, liver, and brain. DHT causes hair follicles to shrink, contributing to male pattern hair loss, thinning, and graying hair. Hair loss affects over 50 million men in the U.S. over the age of 50, which is why we developed our Pro Rich Collection: Shampoo + Conditioner to block DHT buildup, prevent hair loss, and improve hair health.
In order to understand hair loss, we have to understand hair growth. Anagen is the hair’s growth phase, lasting between 2 to 6 years. Around 80% of the hair on your head is in the anagen phase. Catagen is when the hair follicles renew themselves, lasting 2 weeks. Telogen is the resting phase, in which follicles lie dormant for 1 to 4 months. Roughly 20% of hairs on your head are in this phase. After the telogen phase, anagen begins again as existing hair is pushed out of the pore by new hair and naturally sheds.
As DHT shrinks hair follicles, the anagen phase is reduced and the telogen phase becomes longer, meaning hair cannot grow as long as before. Eventually, the anagen phase becomes so short that new hairs do not grow through the surface of the skin. The shaft of the hair becomes thinner with each growth phase until the hairs eventually become “vellus hairs,” soft, light hairs that are prone to falling out.
So what can you do to keep your hair thick, healthy, and young?
The Pro Rich Collection: Your Hair Loss Solution
With so many men asking me for a solution to their hair loss and overall hair health, I went to the lab and came up with the Pro Rich Collection: Shampoo + Conditioner. This one-and-done total hair health combo is made with the best natural ingredients scientifically proven to reduce hair loss, stimulate hair growth, and prevent acne at the hairline.
Shea butter and jojoba oil activate into an ultra-hydrating lather that reduces inflammation and nourishes the scalp and hair with a host of vitamins and minerals. Saw palmetto naturally blocks DHT boosting enzymes while peppermint oil helps stimulate new hair growth and rejuvenating aloe juice repairs dead skin cells on the scalp, leaving hair shiny and smooth.
Our DHT-blocking formula is made with all-natural ingredients, which is why we keep our shampoos and conditioners in amber glass bottles to protect formula longevity and add a touch of class to your shelf. Designed for natural, texturized hair, our formula keeps your hair clean without stripping essential oils.
