For many years, medical researchers thought that male & female pattern baldness were caused by the presence of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which is also possessed by women's bodies in smaller quantities. 

However, new research has uncovered an even more specific villain responsible for hair loss - DHT (or dihydrotestosterone) - a derivative of testosterone. 

DHT has been quoted as the "enemy of hair follicles" by WebMD, and is the root of many kinds of hair loss. It shrinks hair follicles and makes it difficult for healthy hair to survive.

Testosterone is converted to DHT, with the presence of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase in our bodies.

So where does Folligen come in with helping to reduce hair loss? 

Folligen contains Saw Palmetto, a plant that has been shown to slow down the production of the alpha-5 reductase enzyme. 

By cutting off the alpha-5 reductase enzyme, the production of DHT derived from testosterone can be slowed down, thus reducing the amount of hair loss.

Folligen also contains copper peptides, which have shown beneficial effects for skin health and hair growth. It can revitalize the scalp and remove the DHT that has seeped to the surface of the skin. 

The peptides can also rejuvenate your healthy hair as well, strengthening the roots, and thickening the stems of your hair. 

Hence, shampoo containing folligen is a popular product for those seeking to reduce hair fall.
