It has been more than 40,000 years that we humans have been using emu oil and it’s magical properties as a hair fall treatment. It is evident to know that emu oil is a powerful DHT inhibitor.

DHT is a male hormone formed when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase (5-AR) converts testosterone into DHT. Normally 10 percent of testosterone gets converted to DHT. DHT plays a very important role in the early years of development of young male, but it’s seen to be a negative influence in the later years in some people.

Link between high levels of DHT & hair loss:

  • High DHT is one of the main cause of hair loss in men also labelled as ‘bad hormone’.
  • This hormone impacts the hair follicles negatively & shuts them down as its high levels blocks the proteins, vitamins, etc. to provide nourishment to the follicles.
  • DHT shortens the growth phase that results in miniaturization of follicles.
  • The shunted growth of the hair shafts leads to thinning & balding.

DHT affects different individuals in different ways:

  • Studies & researches have proven that high DHT levels don’t lead to hair loss in all men in the same way.
  • It is concluded that some men possess genes which makes their hair follicles more sensitive to DHT thus leading to its miniaturization.

All about emu oil

Ingrained in historical value, this oil is known for its pain relief, healing properties as well as skin treatment. Although recently, it has gained much importance in the field of hair loss treatments and also to stimulate rapid hair growth.

Emu is a flightless bird primitive to Australia but raised in various countries for its red meat. The emu oil is extracted from a fatty deposit from the back of the bird only when it is being butchered for its red meat.

Once refined and treated the oil becomes a mixture of monounsaturated, saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. As an anti-inflammatory agent, the emu oil stimulate the health of epithelial cell in turn improving the cellular functioning.

The emu oil is a highly piercing vehicle and when included in any compound acts as a special delivery system which increases skin absorption and also improves the potency of any topical medication.


Thus, we see that a combination of varied factors will help to control the DHT in the scalp area providing a healthy environment to the hair follicles. Any medical conditions like diabetes, thyroid, etc. should be kept under control. Irritants to which one is prone should be avoided. All these together with a balanced diet will help to keep the problem of DHT under control.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
