Progesterone and Hair Health

Hair loss or “alopecia” is characterized by hair thinning or loss of hair from the head or body. While hair loss is a natural body process, certain factors such as stress, medication, genes, and hormonal imbalance can result in baldness. Today, many effective alternative treatments such as hormone therapy are being prescribed for hair loss. Latest research shows that progesterone therapy can help regrow hair and prevent age-related baldness:
1. At high doses, progesterone inhibits the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, and prevents the body from converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). [189-191] Increased levels of 5-alpha reductase and DHT can damage hair follicles and accelerate hair loss. [192-193]
2. Hair loss after giving birth is common in women with low progesterone levels, thus, restoring progesterone to healthy levels can be beneficial. [194]
