Hormones and Hairloss - Causes Preventions !

  • 4 min. read

There are several reasons which lead to hair thinning/baldness among men. Of these, one of the main culprit for hair loss in men, is supposed to be the male hormone. A converted form of the male hormone is formed when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts the male reproductive hormone. Normally 10 percent of it gets converted to a variant which is termed as a bad hormone due to its affect on hair follicles. This hormone plays a very important role in the early years of development of young male, but it’s seen to be a negative influence in the later years in some people.

  • High levels of this hormone is one of the main cause of hair loss in men also considered and hence it is labelled as ‘bad hormone’.
  • The bad hormone impacts the hair follicles negatively & shuts them down as its high levels blocks the proteins, vitamins, etc. to provide nourishment to the follicles.
  • The bad hormone shortens the growth phase that results in miniaturization of follicles.
  • The shunted growth of the hair shafts leads to thinning & balding.


  • Studies & researches have proven that high Bad Hormone levels don’t lead to hair loss in all men in the same way.
  • It is concluded that some men possess genes which makes their hair follicles more sensitive to Bad Hormone thus leading to its miniaturization.

  • Alkalized Blood: Research has established a link between alkaline food, acidic food & hair loss. While acidic ash aggravates hair loss, the alkaline ash inhibits the bad hormone, thus controlling hair loss.
  • Reducing Allergies: Controlling the allergens is important in making the hair follicles less sensitive. We should be aware of food allergies & avoid them. Finding out about foods which create delayed allergic reactions in you, is very essential.
  • Detox: If you want to control hair fall, practice of detoxifying is advised as toxins build up in the blood from time to time.
  • Hormonal Balance: An imbalance in the hormonal levels leads an increase in the bad hormone level thus harming the follicles.


Thus, we see that a combination of varied factors will help to control the bad hormone in the scalp area providing a healthy environment to the hair follicles. Any medical conditions like diabetes, thyroid, etc. should be kept under control. Allergens to which you are prone should be avoided. All these together with a balanced diet will help to keep the problem of Bad Hormone under control.

It took me 1 Year to decide whether I wanted to go through with the hair restoration procedure using a Natural Looking Hair piece. I did a lot of research and consulted with many people who had done the procedure.

I was convinced to go ahead due to the information session / in-depth knowledge and the excellent customer service skills of Sanjay- the manager.

I did the procedure 1 month ago and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. Advanced Hair Studio provides the best quality for the Hair Pieces. The staff takes the time to understand what you are looking for as a customer. They style your hair based on your facial structure and I must truly admit that their stylists are pure Artists! My favourite stylist is Mohamad from Lebanon. He does magic with his hands and I am always thrilled with the new styles/ suggestions he provides.

I must admit that AHS is on the more expensive side if you were to consider the other competitors in Dubai. However, it is all worth every penny spent! You will not regret it.

Do not over think it. Just go ahead an do the procedure. You will evolve into a whole new person! Believe me! :-)

I started losing my hair in my mid-twenties and in spite of trying all sorts of treatments it gradually got worse and worse. By my late twenties I started cutting my hair short. Whenever I tried to grow it, it used to look a mess and was impossible to style because of my receding and thinning. I was looking at doing a hair transplant for a while, but I kept delaying it in hope that there was some alternative.

When I was in my mid-thirties I first came across AHS. I was a bit skeptical but I thought I’d find out what they could do. I was expecting a sales pitch but what I learned about hair loss and hair restoration from them was presented in a straightforward and logical way, without lots of medical terminology. They take time to explain the root cause of the problem and explore all the different treatments.

I decided to go ahead with the treatment and as it turns out, having AHS fix my hair was one of the best decisions I ever made. I still cannot believe how good my results are. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier rather than wasting so much time (and hair!). I would urge anyone who is thinking of doing something to check them out.
