A DHT blocker is something you are told to stay away from when you are using Minoxidil for beard growth. In reality, just keep it to a low/minimum, a lot of these on the list are not as strong as a DHT blocker as say: Finasteride and Dutasteride. So to be honest there isn’t much of a reason to stay away from most of these just keep it to a minimum like I said. If there’s a way to not use them, even better. I will list a bunch of products you should know are known DHT blockers. Always look at the ingredients on the back of topical products, because there’s a good chance one of these will be found on it.

People will use a bunch of oils that sound good because they think, “Oh it’s natural, must be good and promote hair growth.” When in reality, it can do absolute opposite or can possibly halt progress. Some people will see no noticeable effects with a daily intake of DHT blockers, some will. So here’s the largest list of DHT blockers I could conjure up. Remember this is the largest list of DHT blockers on the internet, but of course it is not all of them.
