Question: dht is responsible for both facial hair as male pattern baldness. i seem to be suffering from the latter but i lack any significant facial hair, how does this work?
However, even if you are seeing signs of genetic hair loss around the top of your head, this is completely separate to your face as the effect DHT has on facial hair depends on your distribution of receptors for DHT.
Why it is possible for men to have, or not have, facial hair and yet still experience male hair loss is one of the mysteries of genetics. Experts describe it as a ‘paradox’ that DHT helps to grow body hair during puberty but it makes you lose hair on the top in the form of pattern baldness, and the definite reason behind this remains, as yet, unknown.
