These products are designed to slow down thinning hair. They are sulfate free, safe for colored treated hair, and made to maximize the results of the HairMax LaserComb because they all combat DHT. DHT is short for Dihydrotestosterone. Testosterone is converted into DHT by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. Hair follicles are sensitive to DHT. DHT causes follicles to shrink and shortens the hairs natural growth cycle. This process is constant, and can be treated by using therapies that inhibit DHT.
