In men, the most common cause of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia (aka "DHT Hair Loss"). When testosterone, the male hormone, gets converted to DHT the result is hair loss. However, for females, re-growth treatment with anti-androgens and topical treatment with Rogaine are more effective in preventing further hair loss rather than stimulating hair growth. Additionally, since these options are best for preventing hair loss, their effectiveness greatly reduces after treatment stops.

For men and women, a balanced diet, plus natural vitamins, protein, and supplements aid hair follicles in absorbing the nutritional building blocks to produce healthy hair fiber. Hair shafts are made up of 3% Omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep the scalp and hair hydrated. Since most people rarely cover their hair,botin also plays an active role in protecting the hair follicles. Unhealthy hair follicles are prone to shedding, so preventive care is the best form of treatment.
