Female Pattern Hair Loss is the most common form of hair loss in women. The gradual loss of hair in women may cause significant emotional distress, losses in self-esteem, and even reduced social functioning in some cases. The first signs of Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) may start as early as the reproductive years, with 12% of women aged 29 having clinically detectable FPHL. The number of women with detectable FPHL increases to over 50% by the age of 79.
FPHL rarely progresses to full baldness and is characterized by diffuse thinning of hair and progressively thinner and shorter strands over time. This is due to the miniaturization of hair follicles which produce short and fine hair shafts. There are many potential variables that may lead to FPHL including increased androgen levels or a genetic predisposition.
Strut Hair Formula attempts to halt or reduce hair losses due to FPHL by combining 3 chemicals in a topical daily formulation to help reduce overall androgen scalp exposure and coerce hair follicles to sprout quicker, grow longer, and produce thicker strands.
Minoxidil is currently the only topical medication FDA approved for use in women with FPHL.
While the mechanism behind how Minoxidil works is not fully known, we know that Minoxidil widens the blood vessels in the scalp when applied topically, potentially bringing more oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the hair follicle.
Minoxidil treatment has been shown to produce significantly higher hair counts and hair weight in women as compared to placebo after scalp application for 16 weeks.
Due to the slow nature of hair growth, the full effects of Minoxidil treatment may take up to 6-12 months for the perception of hair increases to be fully seen.
Strut Hair Formula includes high strength Minoxidil as the cornerstone of the formula to deliver targeted and validated female hair loss recovery.
It has been established that excess androgenic hormones in the scalp, including DHT, play a role in female hair loss as well as male pattern hair loss.
Spironolactone is an anti-androgen medication that was initially developed as a diuretic medication for reducing blood pressure and works by blocking androgen receptors in the targeted tissues.
Due to its targeted androgen-reducing properties, Spironolactone has been used off-label for hair loss in women for over 30 years.
One study showed that 75% of women using spironolactone experienced hair improvements or a stabilization of their current hair loss during treatment.
Spironolactone may block the progression of hair loss with a good long-term safety profile in women.
Spironolactone is included in Strut Hair Formula as a compliment to Minoxidil to halt hair loss progression in women and preliminary studies indicate a benefit in using these medications together.
However, Spironolactone should not be used in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and the use of Spironolactone in men may produce feminization and should be avoided.
Strut Hair formula combines science-based prescription and non-prescription ingredients to restore a fuller head of hair from different treatment angles.
As with most hair growth treatments, the effects will most likely wear off and the regrown hair may be shed if treatment is stopped.
The effects of hair medications take time due to the slow nature of hair growth, and an initial shedding phase is common and partially due to newly grown hairs pushing out older resting phase hairs.
For optimal results, a dedicated daily application is key.
Strut Hair Formula is a physician and pharmacist formulated blend of evidence-based beneficial hair ingredients.
With a good safety profile of these medications applied topically for women and a strong indication of reduction of hair loss progression or potential regrowth, use for Female Pattern Hair Loss may be beneficial in those looking for hair recovery treatments.
