…“Both women and men with androgenetic alopecia have higher levels of androgen receptors and 5-reductase type 1 and 2 in frontal than in occipital hair follicles, whereas higher levels of aromatase were found in their occipital follicles (Sawaya and Price, 1997). Aromatase content in women’s frontal hair follicles was six times greater than in frontal hair follicles in men. Frontal hair follicles in women had 3 and 3.5 times less 5-reductase type 1 and 2, respectively, than frontal hair follicles in men (Sawaya and Price, 1997).”

Pretty much says it all doesn’t it guys?
Its not shampoo, its not short haircuts, its not big pillows, its not “tension”, its not edema, its not combs, its not lack of this or that. Its too much DHT, and too many androgen receptor sites on the follicles. Period.
