Just wanted your thoughts on DHT and hairloss.
So the way it works is testosterone gets converted to DHT and this DHT basically thins hair follicles, some people seem to be less inmune to this, which explains why people bald while others retain their hair.
Having said this, when you undergo a HT and hair follicles from the occipital area of the skull is transplanted to the front, this is hair which is and will always be resistant to DHT thus will never fall.
- Why do HT docs still prescribe Dutas, Minox after a HT if in fact the hair which has been transplanted should never experience the thinning of the hair that died and fell.
- If in fact you have certain hair follicles which are DHT resistant while others are not, why is then the hair loss pattern the same for most men, I mean starts at the front, temples, and so on. So the question then would be, isnt DHT produced primarily in these areas as opposed to the back and occpital area of the head. What I am trying to get at, is whether a HT would clearly resolve the problem unless you take Dutas or a similar drug forever.
