The Male Hormone That Causes Hair Loss

If you have been noticing thinning hair, or hair strands falling out at an alarming rate then there are various reasons that might contribute to this problem. Along the various reasons that cause hair loss in men, one of the primary causes is DHT. It has been scientifically proven that DHT or Dihydrotestosterone plays an important role in causing male pattern baldness or MPB. Also known as Androgenetic Alopecia, this is a hair loss condition which causes a receding hair line or a bald patch at the top.

Since centuries, many theories have been developed for the hair loss condition; however none of them could provide a solid answer as to what causes male pattern baldness. In the late twentieth century, the scientists finally declared that DHT, the male hormone is responsible for hair loss in men.

What is DHT (Dihydrotestosterone)?

If you are wondering what is DHT then let's first delve deeper into this and find out the connection between DHT and hair loss in men. It all start with the male hormone (Testosterone), which is the main sex hormone found in men. It is also responsible for the well-being and overall growth of a man. The main functions of this hormone are as follows:

• It boosts energy 
• It raises the production of RBC (red blood cells) 
• It increases libido (sex drive)

Although the hormone is also present in females, it is in relatively lower quantities. Scientific studies and researches have proved that an average adult male has about 40 to 60 times the amount of testosterone as compared to a woman.

DHT is an active metabolite, and it is also a resulting product of testosterone, the male sex hormone. The metabolites are compounds which are critical for the normal growth, physical reproduction and development.

The DHT is also known as the androgenic hormone, and it is mainly responsible for the development and regulation of the male characteristics. It also aids in suppressing the estrogen, female hormone which are also present in men.

When andrenal glands, prostate glands, testes, and hair follicles release an enzyme called 5 alpha reductase, it binds the male hormone and converts it to DHT. Some of the common roles of androgen are male puberty, male masculinity, nose hairs, acne, male voice, beards and body hair. In simple words, the hormone provides male characteristics and the masculinity to a man.

How Does It Cause MPB?

Several studies have established a relationship between DHT and hair loss in men. So, what's the connection all about? Well, this powerful male hormone is also known to have a dark side to it, and it has been found that it is one of the primary causes of MPB. When this hormone present in the blood stream reaches the scalp, it unites with the androgen receptors on the hair follicles. It interrupts and blocks the normal growth of the follicles, and hence this prevents the vital nutrients and oxygen from reaching the follicles. Over time, this causes the hair follicles to become finer with each hair growth cycle, and finally they fall out. This also leads to the shortening of the growing phase or anagen of your hair.
