Dr. Tara Scott: Finasteride Formulas for Hair Loss (Video)

(Video Transcript)

So, treating hair loss by getting to the root cause is the way that I prefer to do it. But! What can you do in the meantime that is not a quick fix?

So, let’s talk about Strut Health’s Finasteride hair loss formula.

First of all, it comes in a gel or a solution, which I like, because if you don’t wash your hair every day, like I don’t, you don’t want something goopy and weighing you down.

The second thing, there’s no parabens, no propylene glycol. I am big about this in my personal care products, ‘cause those can be endocrine disruptors, and mess with your estrogen balance.

But, let’s talk about the active ingredients. First, there’s Finasteride. Finasteride works at an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase, that’s what converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). And the dihydrotestosterone form is what’s active at the oil glands causing acne, causing hair growth in women where you shouldn’t have it, and hair loss in women and men where you don’t want it. So, it slows that enzyme down.

The second thing is Minoxidil. Minoxidil you may have heard of in other over-the-counter products, but it actually dilates the blood vessels so you are getting blood flow to the hair shaft, which is good.

The third thing is Tretinoin, which is a form of vitamin A, which is a popular treatment for acne.

So, all of these ingredients make this an option for you while you are still waiting for that hormone balance to kick in, and you’re still treating the root cause. But, this can definitely be a help.
