International Hair Loss Expert Dr. Alan J. Bauman Announces New Anti-DHT Shampoo Line to Fight Baldness

Dr BaumanHow important is a shampoo, when it comes to fighting hair loss?

While shampoos and conditioners can’t regrow dead hair follicles on their own, they can be an important part of a multi-therapy approach to combat the thinning associated with male and female pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia).
Internationally renowned hair loss expert and member of the prestigious Pantene Pro-V Hair Research Institute, Alan J. Bauman, M.D., is now announcing his own specially formulated therapeutic hair care line that can improve the appearance of hair and provide an extra layer of protection against the effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a key trigger for men with hereditary hair loss and some women. Called “BaumanMD Therapeutic Shampoo,” the new shampoo line contains three active natural ingredients that have been shown in scientific studies to have an effect on the action of DHT.

“I’ve been developing advanced shampoo products for my patients for many years under the BaumanMD brand; however, these were primarily products designed to add volume, boost shine, replenish moisture and protect the delicate hair strands of patients with thinning hair,” said Dr. Bauman. “However, this new formulation is specifically designed to give an extra boost and added protection to hair loss patients.

This product uses three key ingredients – epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), caffeine and saw palmetto – that have been shown in published scientific studies to have an effect on DHT. When combined with other ingredients, like panthenol, the shampoo can not only make hair look shinier, thicker and fuller (improving volume and texture) in two weeks, but also provide additional protection against the detrimental effects of DHT on the hair follicles without drugs.”

Bauman patient, Rino, says “I’ve been on finasteride to block DHT for years and I’ve only been using the Therapeutic Shampoo for a shorttime, but I already feel that my hair is better than it was. Even my hairstylist noticed a difference since my last visit!”

Bauman recently conducted an independent 18-month, 100-patient, ‘blinded’ consumer trial for Pantene’s new AgeDefy Advanced Hair Thickening Treatment and was a featured speaker at the company’s international launch events in Beijing, New York, Sao Paulo and Edinburgh.

He is a member of the esteemed Pantene Pro-V Hair Research Institute, an elite group of world-class independent hair scientists and senior Pantene scientists who are working together to solve the top hair health problems today. Bauman also serves as a national medical consultant on hair growth/hair improvement products for Fortune 500s, medical and pharmaceutical firms, product and device manufacturers and startups.

Key Facts About the BaumanMD Therapeutic Shampoo:

The primary active ingredients include ECGC or epigallocatechin-3-gallate (a green tea derivative), caffeine, saw palmetto (from Serenoa Serrulata) and panthenol (a provitamin of B5)

It is sulfate-free, pH balanced and color safe

While it can be used as a stand-alone cosmetic therapy to boost the hair’s appearance, it is highly recommended that the shampoo be combined with the BaumanMD Conditioner and used as part of a multi-therapy regimen prescribed by a doctor. BaumanMD can work synergistically with hair growth treatments like finasteride, minoxidil, low level laser therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and hair transplantation.

As with any treatment that targets hair growth or hair volume, continued use is required in order to maintain the results. The shampoo should be used daily, massaged vigorously into the scalp and left on the hair for two to five minutes before rinsing and followed with BaumanMD Conditioner.

Once the product is discontinued, the patient will likely lose the benefits within a few months.

BaumanMD Therapeutic Shampoo retails for $36 for 10.6 oz bottle.

Routine scientific hair growth measurements with the HairCheck device are recommended every 90 days in order to evaluate the effectiveness of a patient’s multi-therapy treatment program.

BaumanMD Therapeutic joins Bauman’s current line of specialty hair care products, including other BaumanMD products, which are all specially formulated for thin-haired patients. All BaumanMD products are doctor-developed and doctor-tested, sulfate-free, and gentle enough for color-treated, laser-treated and transplanted hair. BaumanMD Therapeutic, along with Bauman’s other products, are available at Bauman Medical Group, online or at Bauman Certified HairCoach locations.

Bauman recommends patients consult with a board-certified hair restoration specialist in order to receive the best treatment for their hair loss. Qualified doctors can be found on the websites of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery.
