Is Your Hair Brittle and Easily Broken?

People often try to prevent hair breakage by washing less often, but that can make your hair more brittle, says Dr. Hitzig. Your body produces a steady trickle of testosterone, and when this powerful hormone reaches your scalp, it breaks down to form a waste product called 5DHT. “If 5DHT starts building up on your scalp, it actually sabotages cell division inside follicles, making your hair grow out weak and fragile,” says Hitzig.

“Gently washing 5DHT off of your scalp every 24 hours can keep your levels of this troublemaker safely low, helping your hair grow stronger and more break-resistant within two months.”
