Stop Hair Loss by Eating These 18 DHT Blocking Foods Almonds vs Bananas vs Egg Yolks ... and 15 more

Edited by Donna, Eng, Doug Collins, Rashmi Shah and 14 others

The Cause of DHT Related Hair Loss

DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is a sex hormone is produced in hair follicles and adrenal glands in both sexes, as well as in the prostate and testes in men. Both sexes also produce the hormone testosterone. When the body's hormones are out of balance and produce too much testosterone, DHT blocks follicles from growing hair and balding is the result. The goal of eating foods that block excessive DHT production is to stop hair loss naturally, without having to take medications, or as a support for medications, you may already be taking.

Here are some foods you can eat now to block Excessive DHT Production and re-grow your hair.

Method 1: Almonds

Almonds are rich in L-lysine, which is a powerful DHT inhibitor. Almonds are also a healthy vegan source of protein that supports the growth of new hair. They are also rich in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, the "good" fats that are needed to produce healthy strands of hair with great tensile strength (meaning hair that is less likely to break).

    Tips and Tricks

    • The reddest part of the watermelon contains the most Lycopene, so it is best to wait for a watermelon to get fully ripe before you eat it.
    • Cooked egg yolks are richer in DHT-blocking Biotin than raw egg yolks.
    • Cooking white mushrooms enhances their DHT-blocking properties.
    • The richest source of Biotin from tuna is albacore, but albacore tuna is also more likely to be contaminated with mercury, which can sabotage hair growth.
    • If you are allergic to wheat, or you're gluten intolerant, it is best to stay away from wheat germ as a DHT blocker as those two conditions can provoke DHT production.

    Questions and Answers

    I am losing hair due to hypothyroidism.

    I am losing hair due to hypothyroidism, What should I do?

    Taking an iron supplement with Apply Cider vinegar will help with your hair loss. When you take an iron supplement, you will want to wait at least three hours before or after you take your thyroid medications. This will help with better absorption of the iron. The Apple Cider vinegar will give you some stomach acid. This is low with those that have hypothyroidism. Using a natural progesterone cream will balance your hormones which are depleted with hypothyroidism. Hypothyroid Mom is an excellent website for information on how to manage symptoms of hypothyroidism. There is a regular newsletter you can subscribe to as well as a Facebook page. Check it out! It always helps when you can get input from someone else who suffers the same ailments. Often their trial and errors save time and frustration.

    I am losing hair and it is not growing back?

    I have recently undergone a hysterectomy. I have the problem of a lot of hair loss from the past 4-5 years. I am losing my hair from roots, and it has thinned, looking dull, with no shine. Also, I have graying hairs. Hair growth is also very slow. Please help. I have tried: Some hair oils. I think it was caused by: Hard water and stress

    Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    If your ovaries were removed in the hysterectomy, you are suffering a major hormonal imbalance. It is normal for hair loss during the first three months of a hysterectomy even if you keep your ovaries. Since you have been experiencing this for 4 to 5 years, there is something else involved with the hair loss. Many medications cause hair loss, so check to see if you are taking one. If you use facial creams that contain Retinol A, this too can cause hair loss. If you take a multi-vitamin, make sure it does not contain iron. After a hysterectomy, our bodies no longer require large levels of iron. Too much iron can cause your hair loss. You can take a Folic Acid supplement which has helped women with hair loss after a hysterectomy. Just make sure it does not contain iron as many over the counter supplements for folic acid are combined in a prenatal with iron.

    How many days it requires for a fallen hair with the white bulb to regrow?

    Hi, I'm losing more hairs with the white bulb and doc said I am suffering from telogen effluvium, so my point is when do they regrow back? I have tried: Actual problem started with dandruff for which I have been to doc and said him lies that I have hair fall problem too for which he gave minoxidil solution which is only recommended for androgenic patients but unfortunately I was unaware of and continued to use that stuff and after 4 weeks a massive shed has taken place which was never before and I stopped that stuff after 3 months and I shaved my head and a few weeks later new hair has grown and after 1 month all new hairs have gone and again went another doc were he said it was telogen effluvium....and now I am shedding tiny thick hairs in large number, whereas my thick hairs are fine. I think it was caused by: Minoxidil is the culprit which was my big mistake!

    Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    You should know that it is common to have hair loss when using Minoxidil at the beginning as this is your hair follicles synchronizing. First, get your dandruff under control. Use a shampoo specifically for dandruff. Then start putting Castor Oil on your scalp three times a week for 30 minutes. Assess the hair loss within 6 months, then speak with your doctor again about possibly starting Propecia.

    No hair on my front side of the head. Is it a hereditary problem?

    I have almost nil hairs on my head mainly on the front side and top of the head. I had lost them when I was 22 years old. It is almost same as described in the article. I had used many medicated shampoos and also consumed many hair tonics. But it did not help much. I have tried: I got my hair transplant done. But it only worsened my situation. I also lost the hairs from my backside that were used for transplant. I think it was caused by: I think it is a hereditary problem as my father also had lost his hairs.

    Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Hair loss can be an idiosyncratic matter, especially if you lost your hair young and if you lost the hairs that were used to perform a transplant at a young age. Not everybody can win the battle against an overproduction of DHT, which is usually very hereditary, especially if the hair loss is at the temples and on top of your head as you are describing. In some people, the DHT build-up problem can be continually rinsed away to delay the inevitable balding that can occur and in others, permanent damage to the hair roots happens early, and the damage is irreparable. Sometimes too, it is better for a guy to shave their head completely rather than deal with regrowth that is not quite taking as it should.

    Can a receding hairline on the top be prevented before it worsens?

    I have a problem with my top hairline always breaking just as they start growing after shaving and sometimes would completely unplug out. could this be a disease or something? I shampoo after every 4 days after noticing it. Mine seems to be a bit weird because most people's hairlines recede uniformly or either on the edges. I have been taking Omega 3 and many other DHT blocking foods but haven't any improvement yet after 30 days. I have tried: I have tried Aloe Vera, egg and onion extract so far. I think it was caused by: It began when I started using diluted lemon juice to rinse my head before going to bed

    Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Hi there. It is doubtful that the lemon juice has anything to do with making the condition worse and it is quite likely, even if you are experiencing irregular balding at the hairline, that your condition is hereditary. However, your first step might be to stop using the lemon juice on the bald area and then wait six months to see if your hair grows back. This is to make sure that you don't have some rare allergy to citrus that is causing your follicles additional stress.

    Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    As for what might have caused the irregular balding in the first place, it is possible that it is due to a lack of B Vitamins in your diet? The type of irregular hairline you are describing might be due to balding due to malnutrition, and in particular, a lack of B vitamins. Are you vegan or vegetarian by any chance? People who don't eat meat or dairy tend to be deficient in B vitamins. Try taking B100 Mg Complex Timed Release once a day for six months and see if your hair starts growing back. If not, it might be time to see a doctor, naturopath or dermatologist, who may be able to use blood testing and oral evaluations to diagnose the cause of your premature hair loss.

MPB has begun, my hairline is receding, and the dreadlocks that I have are in danger (especially on the top of the head). My scalp is red on top, and produces flakes. I have been had mild luck with Apple Cider Vinegar cleanses, though this doesn't reverse the issue. The flaking comes back and the redness comes back: I guess I have too much yeast.. I just turned 28. I have been taking biotin off-and-on for awhile, with no noticeable change in condition. I have been prescribed a ketonconazole shampoo, which makes my scalp feel more tender. I do not like chemicals and do not trust prescription medication. I refuse to use Rogaine as-suggested by my dermatologist, as most experience increased hair loss upon ceasing usage. My body chemistry is obviously off: Any suggestions specifically for me? I have not seen seborrheic dermatitis come up as an added factor, yet is something that a majority of Americans are afflicted with in some shape or form. I believe this can help inform myself, as well as anybody else who is trying to combat both afflictions simultaneously. I know it is exacerbating the hair loss, as it is directly affecting the scalp and the follicle. So far, I have not been able to find any info on both of these problems simultaneously; I have only found isolated advice on one problem or the other. I have tried: Apple Cider Vinegar cleanses (up to tri-weekly, but that gets expensive and cumbersome to buy, store, and dispose of all the ACV). I have tried ketoconazole shampoo one time, and will continue to trial it for one week (three uses total). I have taken clinical-strength biotin supplements, as well as fish oil. I will be adopting pumpkin seed into my diet, as well as using the oil on my hair. I will also be seeking out dried Reishi Mushroom and making a paste to use as a hair mask: This is reportedly one of the best and most-successful methods in the world. I am open to a multi-pronged approach, however, and want to do all I can. I cannot fathom losing my hair. I think it was caused by: Poor diet, Excess of DHT, genetics, seborrheic dermatitis, Growing up in Louisiana and moving to Minnesota 8 years ago (climate difference). This problem started before I had dreadlocks, though I stopped paying heed once I started dreadlocks (I then switched to the ACV cleansing)
