What is miniaturization and what causes it?
Miniaturization is caused by blockages in the blood vessels that supply nutrients to the hair follicle and the arrector pili muscle. This will make the arrector pili muscle limp and reduce the diameter of the hair around the tissue responsive area. Hair roots will get nearer to the surface of the scalp. Overtime, the appearance of thinning hair will become evident.
Medical science has proven that the main cause of the blockage is dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is produced by an enzymatic reaction with the testosterone (male hormone) in the tissue responsive area, which is the crown section of the scalp. The enzymatic reaction starts at the adolescent age, where young men and women start to produce hormones from the adrenal gland. The level of
- Excessive consumption of animal fat
- Environmental factors/pollution
Does DHT cause other damage to the scalp?
Yes. The secretion of DHT, when it comes into contact with the sebum (oil produced by the sebaceous gland), will deposit and form a tight, shiny layer that is called hydrophobic lipids on the tissue responsive area. This tight and shiny skin will affect the natural growing cycle of our hair.
Are there any early symptoms?
- Oily scalp and face
- Excessive daily hair loss – more than 70 per day
- Excessive body hair
- Alopecia areata
- Hair on the crown area is thinner and more limp than the hair behind the ear
