For centuries, men, women and even children have had to endure the embarasment and emotional pain caused by hair loss. There are number for reasons for hair loss.

Improper hair care can also be one of the causes for hair loss. Excessive combing or brushing, hair styles such a ponytails or braids, which pulls at the hair, and last but not least the over usage of chemicals such as bleaches and dyes. Although these are the reasons for hair loss due to improper hair maintenance, physiological imbalances such excess production of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

An excessive level of DHT influeces the growth cycle of a hair by preventing the availability of the nutrients to the hair thereby causing excessive hair falling.
