    About hair loss shampoo

    What is saw palmetto and DHT blocking shampoo?

    This is a shampoo which can be used daily as part of your regular showering routine. It contains a blend of saw palmetto (a DHT blocker), iron, vitamin B3, argan oil and other plant oils, formulated to help support healthy hair.  

    What is a DHT blocker?

    DHT  (dihydrotestosterone) is a hormone that affects the hair follicles, causing them to shrink and disrupting the hair growth cycle. A build up of DHT is usually the cause of male pattern baldness, the most common form of hair loss in men.

    DHT blockers work to stop the action of DHT, helping the hair follicles return to their usual growth cycle. The most well-known DHT blocker is finasteride. Finasteride the active ingredient in the prescription-only, effective hair loss treatment Finasteride (or it’s branded version Propecia). Another DHT blocker is saw palmetto, a natural extract.  

    How does this shampoo work?

    Saw palmetto (one of the ingredients in this shampoo) is thought to work by blocking DHT, which might help your hair follicles get back to a usual hair growth cycle. 

    The other ingredients in the shampoo (like iron and vitamin B3) also support your body’s health.  

    Using DHT blocking shampoo

    You can use this shampoo daily, as part of your usual hair washing routine. Lather the shampoo into your hair and leave it for 60-90 seconds before washing it out.  

    Natural DHT blockers

    You may have heard of natural DHT blockers, a quick internet search will throw up DHT blocking foods or oils that block DHT. However, there is no scientific evidence to support claims that eating these foods, using oils, or taking supplements work.  

    Saw palmetto and DHT blocker shampoo benefits

    One of the potential saw palmetto benefits is that it is thought to help hair follicles and in turn hair growth. DHT is a hormone which causes hair follicles to shrink, disrupting the hair growth cycle causing men to lose their hair.  

    Saw palmetto and DHT blocker shampoo side effects

    Side effects from using saw palmetto and DHT blocker shampoo are rare. However, if you experience scalp irritation, burning itchiness or redness then discontinue use. You may be experiencing an allergic reaction and should speak to your doctor. If you have sensitive skin or known allergies, read the ingredients list carefully before using this shampoo to avoid any potential side effects.  

    Can I use this shampoo alongside other hair loss treatments?

    Yes. The hair loss shampoo can be used alongside other hair loss treatments like minoxidil (a scalp solution) and Finasteride (a prescription-only tablet). We also offer biotin, a supplement which it’s thought can help with healthy hair and nails.

    We have a variety of hair loss treatment bundles, which might be suitable for you, if you’re looking at combining treatments. Find out more here.  

    Alternative hair loss treatments

    Finasteride and minoxidil are the only proven ingredients to treat hair loss for men other than a hair transplant. Hair transplants aren’t an option available to everyone, as they can be expensive and invasive hair loss treatment.  

    Alternative hair loss treatment options to help hair loss include wigs, hair pieces or makeup.
