Root Recovery ® Hair and Scalp Treatment is designed to treat the leading causes of hair loss in both men and women. It absorbs quickly into the scalp, leaving no residue or heavy buildup. Here's how it works: DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is an androgen hormone formed when testosterone interacts with the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. It is also the hormone responsible for androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern hair loss and female pattern hair loss, on account of how it causes follicular miniaturization. Shrinking hair follicles produce weaker, 'wispy' hair, and eventually, if left untreated, DHT can cause hair to stop growing altogether. When this stage is reached, hair cannot be regrown naturally, so it's important to deal with DHT sooner rather than later. This treatment is is loaded with all natural DHT blockers that effectively stop DHT from binding to your hair follicles. • Root Recovery ® Hair and Scalp Treatment has 14 known DHT Blockers. These ingredients also are loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, so it not only effectively stops DHT from binding to your hair follicles; it adds vital nutrients back to your hair and scalp. • Root Recovery ® Hair and Scalp Treatment has powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties.
