It’s not DHT, stupid It’s EPIGENETICS that makes you bald

For long, testosterone derived DHT has been linked to baldness. Recent research shows that’s not true. Our gene expression can and is modified by our internal environment or epigenome. Epigenetics is the initiating factor in baldness.
Making our epigenome healthy can stop or even reverse hairfall and baldness.

Video link-It’s not DHT, stupid It’s EPIGENETICS that makes you bald - YouTube

Generally, yes, depending on one’s DNA you’re likelihood of hair loss is determined by your genetic antecedents but DHT still has been proven to cause hair loss. But how? Your genes can make certain hair follicles vulnerable to acidic DHT.

You may be full of testosterone and DHT at an early age but not be genetically predisposed to hair loss then because your hair follicles at such an early age do not have a time expiration yet as to when to start to grow sensitive to the damaging effects of DHT. Once the follicles reach a stage of sensitivity to DHT, DHT will begin to overwhelm the follicular barrier as long as the hair follicle is predisposed to sensitivity to DHT.

The title to the video is somewhat misleading,

Thanks for your comments.
As mentioned by Dr A in the video, its always the genetically predisposed cells that will be affected with the hairloss process.
Question is - Is DHT solely responsible for androgenic alopecia? No.

As you also mentioned, genes make the hair susceptible at some point in our life.
That process by which the genes make the hair vulnerable is called “making the Epigenome unhealthy”.

So, lets stay logical.
DHT has a role to play but we also can play our role in making our Epigenome healthy.

A healthy Epigenome is a pre-requisite for healthy hair.

Thanks and regards,

You’re entirely wrong. There is proof of overwhelming cases of athletes and patients with low testosterone levels who have been administered and prescribed testosterone therapy respectively, for example, whose uptick in testosterone from such intervention has consistently created hair loss because the extra amount of testosterone converted to DHT. Thus, extra DHT will eat away at hair follicles. You can’t fool mother nature.

Let’s be smart about things and not be ridiculous.

If that is your understanding, stay with it.
I have no intention nor time to get into needless semantic arguments.

For the readers, look into your own life and also the hairloss of others around.

Change in life and environment, diet (Epigenome), are often the initiating factors of our hairloss.
These are called adverse epigenetic events.

People are losing hair at an increasingly younger age. Hairloss, especially its initiation, is a lifestyle disease as much as heart disease.

Since you display poor understanding of the interaction between hormones and follicles it’s best that you not comment further upon the subject you obviously have shown little knowledge about so others will not be misinformed. I don’t make it a habit of convincing people with a low level of understanding.

For everyone else, every true medical professional in the field of endocrinology knows that extra amounts of testosterone will easily convert to DHT and depending on how genetically sensitive the follicles are in predisposed areas of the scalp, hair loss will definitely result as has been proven by research.

Diet has little to do with hair loss - all else being equal - as evidenced by homeless people living on the street with poor nutrition possessing great hair density. This is not a lifestyle disease, it’s a genetic disease proven by science, not an online hair transplant doctor with no medical education in the field of hormones.

Everyone, please do your research. Do not make the mistake of reading misinformation from “doctors” to make themselves look good in order to milk money off your ignorance. It’s your hair, your health, your money… not theirs.

If your argument is poor people not getting bald, so diet’s not important…I will leave you to it.

For the rest, please refer to prior studies and research.
I will let that speak for itself rather then get into a time wasting argument.

Read the research. That will help you sift through the truth v/s the pharma lobby propoganda.

I think @Dr_A_s_Clinic has a very valid argument, this DHT causing hair loss theory has been overplayed by the medical world because doctors simply have no clue the real reasons why we are losing our hair, they managed to find a certain link between DHT and hair loss and stopped right there. I think there is a lot more to it than just DHT alone.

Since you’re not a board certified endocrinologist but only a hair transplant doctor with poor understanding of the dynamics which hormones operate on hair follicles it’s best you cease daydreaming about untested theories that professionals in the field laugh at.

Your argument again for balding is diet. Explain why there is a ton of homeless people living on the street with poor nutrition who possess all their hair with out any hair loss. Your nonsense is embarrassing.

Read these links from real endocrinologists to better educate yourself.


What is wrong with you? Why are you being so rude?

Do you have some vested interest in continued sale of DHT blockers?
If so, you can relax. Take all the DHT blockers you want. We are not stopping you.

If you want details about Dr Capt Arvind Poswal’s credentials, the readers can read them at

Doctor, calm down. It’s not that serious.

No one is taking dht blockers here nor has expressed he is.

No offense but I don’t need anyone’s credentials. The research into hormonal impact upon follicles as provided still stands.
