It’s very common for steroid users to fall victim to hair loss, itchy scalp, and unhealthy looking hair. A lot of steroid users will resort to 5-alpha reductase type II enzyme inhibiting drugs such as Finasteride (Propecia) to prevent steroid induced hair loss but these drugs can cause major long term side effects.

Post-Finasteride Syndrome (PFS)
PFS is a condition that describes sexual, neurological, and physical adverse reactions in patients who have taken 5-alpha reductase type II enzyme inhibiting drugs like finasteride. PFS is a condition with no known cure or effective treatments. Medical and scientific communities are only beginning to realize the major scope of this condition.
5-alpha reductase type II enzyme inhibiting drugs like Finasteride prevent testosterone from converting into Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Under normal circumstances, about 5% of testosterone converts into DHT in the male body. DHT plays a major role in the development of characteristics that are typically associated with men (body hair, muscle growth, and a deep voice). DHT is also critical to the development of the penis and plays a major role in muscle building as it activates androgen receptors (AR).
The problem with DHT is that too much can lead to premature baldness. For example, a study for The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that a group of men with premature male pattern baldness had higher levels of DHT .
So as you can see, we are kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place here. DHT is essential for normal male sexual characteristics and muscle gains, but it can also promote premature balding.
So what’s the solution? N2Shampoo.
What is N2Shampoo?
N2Shampoo was developed to prevent DHT from binding to the hair follicles. Since N2shampoo is topical, it won’t block DHT from preventing muscle growth. Instead, it will block DHT from causing hair loss.
N2shampoo contains ingredients that you won’t find in regular shampoos. Here are some of the key ingredients in the N2shampoo formula.
A team of German scientists found that Caffeine blocks DHT from binding to the hair follicle. However, you can’t get these effects just by drinking coffee. The caffeine needs to be applied topically to stimulate the dead hair follicles and counteract the negative effects of DHT on your hair.
Caffeine alone led to a significant stimulation of hair follicle growth. These results were confirmed immunohistochemically by Ki-67 staining.
Emu oil helps caffeine penetrate through your scalp and into the hair follicles.
Vitamin B5 increases blood flow throughout the scalp and prevents the immune system from attacking hair follicles.
