I am sure you guys all missed me so I am going to make up for my absence with this post. Since I enjoy researching things I found a few things that might help people out in their battle against baldness.

First lets get the true problem out there, for most of us is DHT and according to all the research that has been done it is the main thing that is killing our hair. The chemical in our bodies that is converting the testosterone into DHT is called 5 alpha-Reductase which comes in two forms. Type 1 is located in the top layer of skin which is know as the epidermis, type 2 is located within the body. Though they are numbered differently they are just about the same thing just located in different parts of the body. The treatments we have today lower the 5 alph-Reductase type two because it is the internal form and it is more easily lowered than the type 1. This is due to the fact that type 1 is located in your epidermis and the internal medications such as Propecia and Avodart do not affect the outer layers of skin very well.

Saying all that in order for you to have the best results possible you are going to have to find something that blocks both type 1 & 2. Propecia and Avodart seem to do an excellent job of working at the root of the hair in the dermis and hypodermis. For some people that might be enough but for others you are going to have to find a product or something that stops type 1.

I found this site that is very informative and looks to be totally legit. They are not trying to sell you anything they just list what studies have been done on and have shown to work.

I found this page to be quite helpful and informative, especially the part about copper.
