Crinagen Hair Treatment Review

Crinagen is a natural formula of various herbal ingredients which are known for inhibiting DHT. Thus, it is believed to stop hair loss and then promote the natural hair growing process. Based on most statements of the product users, Crinagen should only be used after the prescriptions medications have been tried and tested.

How does Crinagen Work?

Crinagen addresses the root cause of most hair loss cases – the dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT damages the hair follicles. When this happens, the body’s immune system responds and inflammation happens. This response introduces more damages to the follicles, and most of the time, causes the death of death of the follicular cells. Technically, the best way to stop the development of this hair loss condition – androgenetic alopecia – is by treating the underlying genetic problem which causes DHT. This can be made only through gene therapy that has not been perfectly developed up to now. So, what Crinagen does is to offer the next best solution.

Crinagen tries to block the formation of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by blocking the activity of 5 alpha-reductase. In this process, the hair loss solution then stops the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. In effect, the amount of DHT within the scalp is greatly reduced and so is the hormone’s miniaturizing effect on the follicles. In addition to that, Crinagen also nourishes the blood vessels in the scalp so hair can start to re-grow.

Taking this into account, it can be concluded that Crinagen can only treat hair loss problems which are associated with DHT – in particular, male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia. Basically, this product is perfect for people who are seeking a natural alternative to the prescription medications. Crinagen belongs to the “anti-androgen” medications and is ideal for men who are experience diffuse thinning (the formation of a bald spot in back or recession at the temples). This product primarily functions to slow down, if not totally stop the hair loss process. To some extent, it also promotes hair growth but this only occurs effectively if it is used in combination with other prescription drugs.

What are the ingredients of Crinogen?

Crinogen is composed of distilled water; Polysorbate 20; Azelaic Acid; Zinc Acetate Hydrate; Niacin; Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-phosphate); Saw Palmetto extract (serenoa repens); and Ginkgo Biloba. Among all of these, the most active ingredients are Zinc and Saw Palmetto. These ingredients have been proven to block the conversion of testosterone into DHT. Since these product components are natural, product users do not experience hormonal side effects. They do not experience a reduction in sexual drive which is commonly associated with other hair loss solutions.

What is Unique about Crinagen?

Unlike other topical scalp solutions to hair loss, Crinagen is not paired with an accompanying shampoo. So, it is cheaper than other treatment packages but it still works well. However, even the manufacturers claim that for maximum positive results, the product user must be used along with other hair loss shampoos. Moreover, Crinogen is not sold in local drugstores. Instead, it is only available online. Though it may be convenient to place orders online, some may find this off because of the threat of identity fraud and other security problems associated with online financial transactions.
