Have you ever heard or read about DHT and androgenic alopecia?

This is partly responsible for the baldness or any kind of pattern baldness in male and female. DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) is a derivative of male hormone called as testosterone. This male hormone is not only present in males (300-1000 ng/dL) but, also females in small quantities (9-55 ng/dL). In an adult every day almost 10 percent of the testosterone gets converted into DHT.
