I was doing some research on Shen Min and came across this (see below). By the way It seems the only useful ingredients in Shen Min are Saw Palmetto and Bet Sis and the guy who wrote it some kind of shill. Anyway there might be some truth mixed in with his shilling. I'm concerned that even though I have reduced DHT levels there maybe a significant build up of DHT in my scalp that is just sitting there. Can anyone confirm if this is true. Does DHT build up in your scalp and remain until removed? If yes what is the best way to remove.

I use Nizorelle which is 1% but it also contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate which this guy implies isn't deep cleansing enough to remove DHT. I can't find any info on this so please advise.


"Also depending on your shampooing habits you may have a significant site build up of DHT in your scalp itself as well as in your Galea membrane.

I would recommend you get a deep cleansing shampoo that is free of SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and shampoo your hair atleast once a day to aid in removing the build up of DHT. Until you accomplish this, even if your DHT level in your system drops, it will be very difficult for the active components in Shen Min Advanced to have the desired effect.

There are several shampoo's that can help to reduce your scalp build-up. One is "Super Hair Energizer" by Ferm T. Or even Shen Min shampoo will do the trick. Either way, the idea is to remove as much build up from your scalp/follicle/membrane as possible, so shampooing atleast once daily is necessary. Make sure you massage your scalp with your finger tips while you are shampooing."
