Accidental Find May Lead To a Cure For Baldness

idonthack Anti-MPB products are 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors (404 comments)

The current anti-male-pattern-baldness products interfere with the production or activity of 5-alpha-reductase to reduce the amount of testosterone converted into dihydrotestosterone. They are usually topical ointments that only affect hair follicles in the area of application. They do not promote hair growth, they merely disrupt the balding process. Since 5-alpha-reductase is localized in the scalp and the prostate, the application of 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors at other locations is pointless.
