How do I actually stop hair loss & regrow hair?

The hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is the culprit for the majority of hair loss. For men, the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase (5-AR) converts testosterone into DHT; about 10 percent of testosterone is normally converted into DHT every day (genetics play a role in this). Since DHT is more powerful than testosterone, It attaches to the same sites as testosterone, but more easily. Once there, it remains bound for longer. Over time, this shrinks the hair follicle until they become ‘miniaturized’. This is the “DHT buildup” that you must combat to allow your hair to continue in its normal growth cycle. Time & Consistency is the key to success; Fight the negative effects of the excessive hair killing hormone, and see for yourself.

Is it normal to lose more hair at first?

With just the shampoo and conditioner, no. The DHT-fighting formula works to start un-shrinking the hair follicles miniaturized by DHT. This should result in thicker, stronger hair with less breakages.
The minoxidil regrowth serum, however, works differently. Minoxidil acts as a vasodilator, meaning it increases blood flow to your hair follicles. This can prematurely trigger the telogen phase of the hair growth cycle, which can result in shedding. If you experience this, fear not. Due to the increased supply of blood flow, your hair will quickly regrow. This is why minoxidil must be used for a bare minimum of 2 months for a positive effect.

1-2 Months = Fight the effects of DHT, the save your hair phase*


3-6 Months = Hair loss has slowed, stopped. The growth phase*


6-12 Months = Where most people see maxium results*



Does Shapiro MD cause libido problems?

No. Libido problems are commonly associated with the hair 5% hair regrowth drug finasteride. Shapiro MD was actually founded as an alternative to finasteride – an effective naturally occurring DHT-fighting solution for hair loss without any side effects. But that’s not all…
(see next question)


Why Shapiro MD over other brands?

Here’s why: testosterone is converted to hair-loss-causing dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. There are 2 types of 5-alpha-reductase. Type 1, which is primarily found in the skin, and type 2, which is primarily found in the prostate. Guess which type finasteride blocks? Type 2!


Why Shapiro MD and not other natural DHT blocking shampoos?

For DHT Blocking Ingredients, MORE ≠ BETTER

Shapiro MD features the exact concentrations of proven ingredients to provide maximum DHT protection. Any more of the Shapiro MD ingredients can cause a “reverse” effect and actually make hair loss worse. Aspirin is the best example. 1 or 2 aspirin pills can make a headache go away, 20 aspirin pills can be fatal. Medicine is all about finding the perfect balance. Not too little, not too much.

Shapiro MD is formulated by licensed dermatologists and made in the USA

Dr. Shapiro and Borenstein spent 10 years finding the perfect combination of ingredients for maximum effectiveness. Every ingredient is extremely high quality and sourced in the USA. Each bottle of Shapiro MD is made in the USA. With Shapiro MD, you NEVER have to worry about dangerous chemicals getting mixed in or counterfeit, low-quality ingredients from China.
