Breezula (clascoterone) and Formula 82F (topical finasteride) are treatments for hair loss that block DHT differently; Breezula competes with DHT at the hormone receptor site without systemic effects, while 82F inhibits the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT. Breezula may work for those who don't respond to finasteride and vice versa.
A user is testing clascoterone (Winlevi) on their scalp for hair loss and has noticed a reduction in scalp sebum after one month. They are also using other unspecified treatments and plan to provide an update after the second month.

There is disappointment that Breezula's results are not optimal, but it is seen as progress in hair loss treatment.
Breezula protects hair follicles from both testosterone and DHT, unlike finasteride, which only protects against DHT. This could potentially lead to significant hair regrowth, similar to results seen in transgender individuals using hormone blockers.
The conversation discusses why DHT (dihydrotestosterone) negatively affects scalp hair but promotes growth elsewhere on the body. Various opinions include genetic predispositions, differences in hair follicle reactions to DHT, and the potential role of Omega-3 in reducing inflammation and promoting hair health.
